Title: How to construct two non Gamma II_1 factors with non isomorphic ultrapowers

Abstract: I will describe a construction due to myself, Chifan and Ioana of a II_1 factor N such that N^omega is not isomorphic to L(F_2)^omega for any free ultrafilter omega. This is the first known such examples. The proof uses Voiculescu's free entropy theory and Popa's deformation rigidity theory.
