Garland's method with Banach coefficients

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We prove a Banach version of Garland’s method of proving vanishing of cohomology for groups acting on simplicial complexes. The novelty of this new version is that our new condition applies to every reflexive Banach space. This new version of Garland’s method allows us to deduce several criteria for vanishing of group cohomology with coefficients in several classes of Banach spaces (uniformly curved spaces, Hilbertian spaces and Lp spaces). Using these new criteria, we improve recent results regarding Banach fixed-point theorems for random groups in the triangular model and give a sharp lower bound for the conformal dimension of the boundary of such groups. Also, we derive new criteria for group stability with respect to p-Schatten norms.
