Zimmer’s conjecture for actions of SL(m,Z)

Zimmer’s conjecture aims to extend Margulis’ superrigidity theorem to a nonlinear setting. Except for actions on the circle there has not been much progress in the last 35 years. A new preprint of Brown-Fisher-Hurtado and its predecessor are now settling the conjecture for finite index subgroups of \(SL(n,{\mathbb Z})\) and cocompact lattices in \(SL(n,{\mathbb R})\). … Continue reading "Zimmer’s conjecture for actions of SL(m,Z)"
