We show by elementary combinatorial arguments that any non-zero homogeneous quasimorphism on a given group can be realized as the relative growth of some bi-invariant partial order on that group. Thereby we provide a link between quasimorphisms, bounded cohomology and partial orders. This yields existence results for bi-invariant partial orders, e.g. for(More)
We define a generalization of the classical four-point cross ratio of hyperbolic geometry on the unit circle given by invariant functions on Shilov boundaries of arbitrary bounded symmetric domains of tube type. This generalization is functorial and well-behaved under products. In fact, these two properties determine our extension uniquely. Any maximal(More)
