A well-known result of Giordano-Putnam-Skau asserts that two minimal homeomorphisms of the Cantor space which have the same invariant Borel probability measures are orbit equivalent. I will present a new, rather elementary, proof of that fact, based on a strengthening of a 1979 theorem of Krieger concerning minimal actions of certain locally finite groups on the Cantor space. No familarity with topological dynamics will be assumed.
This is joint work with Simon Robert (Lyon).
