Extending higher dimensional quasi-cocycles

17 Apr 2015  ·  Frigerio R., Pozzetti M. B., Sisto A. ·

Let G be a group admitting a non-elementary acylindrical action on a Gromov hyperbolic space (for example, a non-elementary relatively hyperbolic group, or the mapping class group of a closed hyperbolic surface, or Out(F_n) for n>1). We prove that, in degree 3, the bounded cohomology of G with real coefficients is infinite-dimensional... Our proof is based on an extension to higher degrees of a recent result by Hull and Osin. Namely, we prove that, if H is a hyperbolically embedded subgroup of G and V is any G-module, then any n-quasi cocycle on H with values in V may be extended to G. Also, we show that our extensions detect the geometry of the embedding of hyperbolically embedded subgroups, in a suitable sense. read more
