Abstract.Let X be a proper hyperbolic geodesic metric space and let G be a closed subgroup of the isometry group Iso(X) of X. We show that if G is not elementary then for every p ∈ (1, ∞) the second continuous bounded cohomology group H2cb(G, Lp(G)) does not vanish. As an application, we derive some structure results for closed subgroups of Iso(X). 
Isometry groups of proper CAT(0)-spaces of rank one
LetX be a proper CAT.0/-space and letG be a closed subgroup of the isometry group Iso.X/ of X . We show that if G is non-elementary and contains a rank-one element then its second continuous bounded
Rank-one isometries of proper CAT(0)-spaces
Let G be a non-elementary group of isometries of a proper CAT(0)-space with limit set L. We survey properties of the action of G on L under the assumption that G contains a rank-one element. Among
Bounded cohomology and isometry groups of hyperbolic spaces
Let $X$ be an arbitrary hyperbolic geodesic metric space and let $\Gamma$ be a countable subgroup of the isometry group ${\rm Iso}(X)$ of $X$. We show that if $\Gamma$ is non-elementary and weakly
Bounded cohomology, cross ratios and cocycles
We use cross ratios to describe second real continuous bounded cohomology for locally compact topological groups. We also derive a rigidity result for cocycles with values in the isometry group of a
Topology of open nonpositively curved manifolds
This is a survey of topological properties of open, complete nonpositively curved manifolds which may have infinite volume. Topics include topology of ends, restrictions on the fundamental group, as
Bounded cohomology with coefficients in uniformly convex Banach spaces
We show that for acylindrically hyperbolic groups $\Gamma$ (with no nontrivial finite normal subgroups) and arbitrary unitary representation $\rho$ of $\Gamma$ in a (nonzero) uniformly convex Banach
Rank-One Isometries of Buildings and Quasi-Morphisms of Kac–Moody Groups
Given an irreducible non-spherical non-affine (possibly non-proper) building X, we give sufficient conditions for a group G < Aut(X) to admit an infinite-dimensional space of non-trivial
The Action homomorphism, quasimorphisms and moment maps on the space of compatible almost complex structures
We extend the definition of Weinstein's Action homomorphism to Hamiltonian actions with equivariant moment maps of (possibly infinite-dimensional) Lie groups on symplectic manifolds, and show that
An invitation to bounded cohomology
A selection of aspects of the theory of bounded cohomology is presented. The emphasis is on questions motivating the use of that theory as well as on some concrete issues suggested by its study.

We prove that the natural map Hb2(Γ)?H2(Γ) from bounded to usual cohomology is injective if Γ is an irreducible cocompact lattice in a higher rank Lie group. This result holds also for nontrivial

We introduce new techniques to extend superrigidity theory beyond the scope of Lie or algebraic groups. We construct a cohomological invariant which accounts for, and generalizes, all known
