The boundary action of a sofic random subgroup of the free group cover

Abstract

We prove that the boundary action of a sofic random subgroup of a finitely generated free group is conservative (there are no wandering sets). This addresses a question asked by Grigorchuk, Kaimanovich, and Nagnibeda, who studied the boundary actions of individual subgroups of the free group. We also investigate the cogrowth and various limit sets associated to sofic random subgroups. We make heavy use of the correspondence between subgroups and their Schreier graphs, and central to our approach is an investigation of the asymptotic density of a given set inside of large neighborhoods of the root of a sofic random Schreier graph.
