On rigidity of Lie foliations (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
If the leaves of a Lie foliation are isometric to a symmetric space of noncompact type of higher rank, then, by a theorem of Zimmer, the holonomy group of the Lie foliation has rigidity similar to that of lattices of semisimple Lie groups of higher rank. The main result of this talk is a generalization of Zimmer's theorem including the case of real rank one based on an application of a variant of Mostow rigidity. (This talk is based on a joint work with Ga¥"el Meigniez.)
