We establish new results and introduce new methods in the theory of measurable orbit equivalence, using bounded cohomology of group representations. Our rigidity statements hold for a wide (uncountable) class of groups arising from negative curvature geometry. Amongst our applications are (a) measurable Mostow-type rigidity theorems for products of… (More)

We present a short, self-contained, relatively simple proof to the growth di-chotomy of linear groups. The proof depends on the fixed point property of amenable groups, and the main tool is Furstenberg's Lemma regarding measures on projective spaces. ᮊ 1998 Academic Press Let G be a group generated by a finite subset S; define S n to be the set Ž. < n < of… (More)

For every hyperbolic group and more general hyperbolic graphs, we construct an equivariant ideal bicombing: this is a homological analogue of the geodesic flow on negatively curved manifolds. We then construct a cohomological invariant which implies that several Measure Equivalence and Orbit Equivalence rigidity results established in [MSb] hold for all… (More)

Let k be any locally compact non-discrete field. We show that finite invariant measures for k-algebraic actions are obtained only via actions of compact groups. This extends both Borel's density and fixed point theorems over local fields (for semisimple/solvable groups, resp.). We then prove that for k-algebraic actions, finitely additive finite invariant… (More)

Let µ be a probability measure on a locally compact group G, and suppose G acts measurably on a probability measure space (X, m), preserving the measure m. We study ergodic theoretic properties of the action along µ-i.i.d. random walks on G. It is shown that under a (necessary) spectral assumption on the µ-averaging operator on L 2 (X, m), almost surely the… (More)
