Spectral Gap Rigidity and Unique Prime Decomposition


We use malleable deformations combined with spectral gap rigidity theory, in the framework

of Popas deformation/rigidity theory to prove unique tensor product decomposition results

for II1 factors arising as tensor product of wreath product factors and free group factors. We

also obtain a similar result regarding measure equivalence decomposition of direct products

of such groups.
