Property (T) and rigidity for actions on Banach spaces
We study property (T) and the fixed-point property for actions on Lp and other Banach spaces. We show that property (T) holds when L2 is replaced by Lp (and even a subspace/quotient of Lp), and that in fact it is independent of 1≤p<∞. We show that the fixed-point property for Lp follows from property (T) when 1< p< 2+ε. For simple Lie groups and their lattices, we prove that the fixed-point property for Lp holds for any 1< p<∞ if and only if the rank is at least two. Finally, we obtain a superrigidity result for actions of irreducible lattices in products of general groups on superreflexive spaces.
