Smooth cocycle rigidity for expanding maps, and an application to Mostow rigidity



We give a variation on the proof of Mostow's rigidity theorem, for certain hyperbolic 3-manifolds. This is based on a rigidity theorem for conjugacies between piecewise-conformal expanding Markov maps. The conjugacy rigidity theorem is deduced from a Livsic cocycle rigidity theorem that we prove for smooth, compact Lie group-valued cocycles over piecewise smooth expanding Markov maps.
