We will define flows and ambits, then construct some universal objects (because ultrafilters are cool!) in the case that $G$ is discrete. Time permitting, we will see how to generalize this construction to all topological groups.Date: Tuesday, September 5, 2017Time: 5:30 pmLocation: Wean Hall 8220Submitted by:  Yangxi OuNote: Video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/4__hCPbDxhk
