Finitely approximable groups and actions Part II: Generic representations

By Christian Rosendal


Given a finitely generated group $\Gamma$, we study the space ${\rm Isom}(\Gamma,{\mathbb Q\mathbb U})$ of all actions of $\Gamma$ by isometries of the rational Urysohn metric space ${\mathbb Q\mathbb U}$, where ${\rm Isom}(\Gamma,{\mathbb Q\mathbb U})$ is equipped with the topology it inherits seen as a closed subset of ${\rm Isom}({\mathbb Q\mathbb U})^\Gamma$. When $\Gamma$ is the free group $\F_n$ on $n$ generators this space is just ${\rm Isom}({\mathbb Q\mathbb U})^n$, but is in general significantly more complicated. We prove that when $\Gamma$ is finitely generated Abelian there is a generic point in ${\rm Isom}(\Gamma,{\mathbb Q\mathbb U})$, i.e., there is a comeagre set of mutually conjugate isometric actions of $\Gamma$ on ${\mathbb Q\mathbb U}$
