Title:Automorphism groups of regular trees: from the Euler-Poincarè characteristic to the double coset zeta-functions

Abstract: The Euler-Poincaré characteristic of a discrete group is an important (but also quite mysterious) invariant. It is usually just an integer or a rational number and reflects many quite significant properties. The realm of totally disconnected locally compact groups admits an Euler-Poincaré characteristic: surprisingly it is no longer just a number but it is a rational multiple of a Haar measure. A key source of totally disconnected locally compact groups consists of automorphism groups of locally finite graphs. Since the computation of the Euler-Poincaré characteristic of the automorphism group is quite gentle when the graph is a 2-coloured regular tree, I plan to use such groups as leading examples…
