This thesis covers the results from two projects.
In the frst project, we use a theorem of Koivisto, Kyed and Raum to show that a uniform measure equivalence between unimodular compactly generated locally compact second countable groups induces an isomorphism of their respective cohomologies, generalising a theorem of Sauer. We furthermore use this theorem to gain new insights on the quasi-isometry classification of simply connected nilpotent Lie groups, obtaining results which cannot be obtained using the previously well-known quasi-isometry classification results by Pansu, Shalom and Sauer. This project is joint work with David Kyed.
In the second project, we give a partial answer to a question posed by Aguilar and Kaad
on whether or not the standard Podle± quantum spheres converge to the 2-sphere as compact
quantum metric spaces. In particular, we show that its diagonal subalgebras, which are
equivalent to a family of quantised intervals, converge to the interval, and that they vary
continuously. This project is joint work with Jens Kaad and David Kyed.
