On the existence of stable compact leaves for
transversely holomorphic foliations (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
One of the most important results in the theory of foliations is
the celebrated Local stability theorem of Reeb :
A compact leaf of a foliation having finite holonomy group is
stable, indeed, it admits a fundamental system of invariant
neighborhoods where each leaf is compact with finite holonomy
group. This result, together with the Global stability theorem of Reeb
(for codimension one real foliations), has many important consequences
and motivates several questions in the theory of foliations. In this talk
we show how to prove:

A transversely holomorphic foliation on a compact complex manifold, exhibits a compact stable
leaf if and only if the set of compact leaves is not a zero measure subset of the manifold.

This is a joint work with Cesar Camacho.
