Cost of Inner Amenable Equivalence Relations
Konrad Wrobel, Department of Mathematics, Texas A&M University,

Cost is a [1,\infty)-valued measure-isomorphism invariant of aperiodic equivalence relations defined by Gilbert Levitt and heavily studied by Damien Gaboriau. For a large class of equivalence relations, including amenable, the cost is 1. Yoshikata Kida and Robin Tucker-Drob recently defined the notion of an inner amenable equivalence relation as an analog of inner amenability in the setting of groups. We show inner amenable equivalence relations also have cost 1. This is joint work with Robin Tucker-Drob.
