Bounding the covolume of lattices in products

By Pierre-Emmanuel Caprace (Université Catholique de Louvain)

The Kazhdan-Margulis theorem ensures that, in a semisimple Lie group without compact factors, the set of covolumes of all lattices is bounded away from 0. The goal of this talk, based on joint work with Adrien Le Boudec, is to discuss the validity of that theorem, and some of its relatives, in the broader context of lattices in products of compactly generated simple locally compact groups.
