Eric, like Todd, is 100% right. I've updated the question accordingly. |

You're quite right! I wrote "$SL$" unthinkingly. I'll fix the post (leaving tracks so that your comment still makes sense to later readers). |

Transitivity of balanced mass transport in Z
I believe that the measure that assigns mass 1 to every integer $n \geq 1$ is not equivalent under $\sim$ to the measure that assigns mass 1 to every integer $n \geq 0$, but I suspect that if I tried to write down a proof I'd need to use the uniform boundedness assumption. |

Transitive closure of balanced mass transport in Z (move to close)
Thanks for providing more details! However, I am still not convinced. The part of the argument that I'd like to see elaborated is "So I can continue indefinitely in this style". Applying the move an indefinite but finite number of steps is fine; but it is not clear that performing the operation infinitely many times keeps one in the same $\approx$ equivalence class. To justify this one needs to show that the sequence of measures converges in the total variation metric, and that does not seem to be the case here. |

I was able to show (I think!) that $\sim$ is not transitive. |
