Popa's Cocycle Superrigidity Theorem
In this lecture, we shall sketch the proof of:
Theorem (Popa)
Let be a countably infinite Kazhdan group and let G be a countable
group such that G. If H is any countable group, then every Borel
cocycle
: G 2G
H
is equivalent to a group homomorphism of G into H.
Remark
Popa's original proof was written in the framework of Operator
Algebras.
This presentation is based upon Furman's Ergodic-theoretic
account.
