Nearly finite Chacon transformation
Annales Henri Lebesgue, Volume 2 (2019), pp. 369-414.


KeywordsChacon infinite measure preserving transformation, rank-one transformation, joinings.


We construct an infinite measure preserving version of Chacon transformation, and prove that it has a property similar to Minimal Self-Joinings in finite measure: its Cartesian powers have as few invariant Radon measures as possible.
