Abstract

Roelcke precompact groups are exactly the topological groups that can be realized as automorphism groups of omega-categorical structures (in continuous logic). In this talk, I will discuss a model-theoretic framework for the study of those groups and their dynamical systems as well as two concrete applications. The talk is based on joint work with Itaï Ben Yaacov and Tomás Ibarlucía.
