# On the equivariant cohomology of cohomogeneity one Alexandrov spaces

@article{Amann2019OnTE, title={On the equivariant cohomology of cohomogeneity one Alexandrov spaces}, author={Manuel Amann and Masoumeh Zarei}, journal={arXiv: Differential Geometry}, year={2019} }

We give a characterization of those Alexandrov spaces admitting a cohomogeneity one action of a compact connected Lie group $G$ for which the action is Cohen--Macaulay. This generalizes a similar result for manifolds to the singular setting of Alexandrov spaces where, in contrast to the manifold case, we find several actions which are not Cohen--Macaulay. In fact, we present results in a slightly more general context. We extend the methods in this field by a conceptual approach on equivariant…
