Let X be a proper hyperbolic geodesic metric space of bounded growth and let G be a closed subgroup of the isometry group Iso(X) of X. We show that if G is not amenable then the second continuous bounded cohomol-ogy group H 2 cb (G, L 2 (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
Let G be a closed subgroup of the isometry group of a proper CAT(0)-space X. We show that if G is non-elementary and contains a rank-one element then its second bounded cohomology group with
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
Groups acting on hyperbolic spaces with a locally finite orbit
A group with a geometric action on some hyperbolic space is necessarily word hyperbolic, but on the other hand every countable group acts (metrically) properly by isometries on a locally finite
Amenable hyperbolic groups
We give a complete characterization of the locally compact groups that are nonelementary Gromov-hyperbolic and amenable. They coincide with the class of mapping tori of discrete or continuous
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
Acylindrically hyperbolic groups
We say that a group $G$ is acylindrically hyperbolic if it admits a non-elementary acylindrical action on a hyperbolic space. We prove that the class of acylindrically hyperbolic groups coincides
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 VIA PARTIAL DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS, I
We present a new technique that employs partial dierential equations in order to explicitly construct primitives in the continuous bounded cohomology of Lie groups. As an application, we prove a

The Second Bounded Cohomology of a Group Acting on a Gromov‐Hyperbolic Space
Suppose a group G acts on a Gromov‐hyperbolic space X properly discontinuously. If the limit set L(G) of the action has at least three points, then the second bounded cohomology group of G , Hb2(G;R)

Abstract We show that any cocycle from an ergodic, finite measure preserving action of a higher-rank group to a closed subgroup of the isometry group of a proper, geodesic hyperbolic, ‘at most
Bounded cohomology of lattices in higher rank Lie groups
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
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
Orbit equivalence rigidity and bounded cohomology
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
Cocycle superrigidity and bounded cohomology for negatively curved spaces
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
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
Continuous bounded cohomology and applications to rigidity theory
We present a theory of continuous bounded cohomology of locally compact groups with coefficients in Banach modules. A central role is played by amenable actions, as they give rise to relatively
Metric Spaces of Non-Positive Curvature
This book describes the global properties of simply-connected spaces that are non-positively curved in the sense of A. D. Alexandrov, and the structure of groups which act on such spaces by
