Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
I provide an elementary construction of  unitary representations of the Thompson group F.  Further I will motivate this new approach by recent results on distributional symmetries in noncommutative probability.  My talk is based on joined work with Rajarama Bhat, Gwion Evans, Rolf Gohm and Stephen Wills.
