Measurable rigidity of the cohomological equation for linear cocycles over hyperbolic systems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We show that any measurable solution of the cohomological equation for a Hölder linear cocycle over a hyperbolic system coincides almost everywhere with a Hölder solution. More generally, we show that every measurable invariant conformal structure for a Hölder linear cocycle over a hyperbolic system coincides almost everywhere with a continuous invariant conformal structure. We also use the main theorem to show that a linear cocycle is conformal if none of its iterates preserve a measurable family of proper subspaces of Rd. We use this to characterize closed negatively curved Riemannian manifolds of constant negative curvature by irreducibility of the action of the geodesic flow on the unstable bundle.
