Abstract: We introduce the concept of reflexivity for bounded $ n$-linear maps and investigate the reflexivity of $ \mathcal{Z}^n(L^1(G),X)$, the space of bounded $ n$-cocycles from $ L^1(G)^{(n)}$ into $ X$, where $ L^1(G)$ is the group algebra of a locally compact group $ G$ and $ X$ is a Banach $ L^1(G)$-bimodule. We show that $ \mathcal{Z}^n(L^1(G),X)$ is reflexive for a large class of groups including groups with polynomial growth, IN-groups, maximally almost periodic groups, and totally disconnected groups. If, in addition, $ G$ is amenable and $ X$ is the dual of an essential Banach $ L^1(G)$-bimodule, then we show that $ \mathcal{Z}^1(L^1(G),X)$ satisfies a stronger property, namely hyperreflexivity. This, in particular, implies that $ \mathcal{Z}^1(L^1(G),L^1(G))$ is hyperreflexive.
