### Infinite groups with fixed point properties

Abstract:

We construct finitely generated groups with strong fixed point properties. Let $\mathcal{X}_{ac}$ be the class of Hausdorff spaces of finite covering dimension which are mod-$p$ acyclic for at least one prime $p$. We produce the first examples of infinite finitely generated groups $Q$ with the property that for any action of $Q$ on any $X\in \mathcal{X}_{ac}$, there is a global fixed point. Moreover, $Q$ may be chosen to be simple and to have Kazhdan's property (T). We construct a finitely pr...
