We will review some of recent developments in interaction between operator algebras and dynamics and ergodic theory of groups.
In particular, we discuss applications of boundary actions in $C^{*}$simplicity and unique trace property of $C^{*}$algebras, as well as
operator algebraic techniques in proving normal subgroup theorems and IRS rigidity.
