On the existence problem of Compact Clifford-Klein forms of indecomposable pseudo-Riemannian symmetric spaces with signature (n,2) (Japanese)
[ Abstract ]
For a homogeneous space $G/H$ and its discontinuous group $\Gamma\subset G$, the double coset space $\Gamma\backslash G/H$ is called a Clifford-Klein form of $G/H$. In the study of Clifford-Klein forms, the classification of homogeneous spaces which admit compact Clifford-Klein forms is one of the important open problems, which was introduced by Toshiyuki Kobayashi in 1980s.

We consider this problem for indecomposable and reducible pseudo-Riemannian symmetric spaces with signature (n,2). We show the non-existence of compact Clifford-Klein forms for some series of symmetric spaces, and construct new compact Clifford-Klein forms of countably infinite five-dimensional pseudo-Riemannian symmetric spaces with signature (3,2).
