Ergodic and mixing probability measures on [SIN] groups
We prove that the concepts of completely mixing, mixing, and weakly mixing probability measures on a locally compact group in the class [SIN] are mutually equivalent. A probability measure on such a group is completely mixing if and only if it is ergodic and aperiodic. For measures that are not necessarily aperiodic ergodicity is shown to be equivalent to a mixing-like property which we call almost mixing. Some results on when a probability measure on a [SIN] group is ergodic are also developed. Our methods are based on the theory of boundaries of random walks.
