I'm reading about the Mostow's rigidity theorem, and the proof uses the following (maybe well-known) result: The geodesic flow on a manifold with negative curvature is ergodic. The lecture note that ...
Question. Is there any example of a path connected symplectic manifold $(M,\omega)$ that has infinite volume, but which cannot be packed by an infinite number of symplectic balls of a fixed radius ...
Does someone have a reference where the Ruelle inequality would be proved in the following context. Let $M$ be a non compact smooth manifold, and $f:M\to M$ be a $C^1$-diffeomorphism (or $C^2$, ...
By super-rigidity I mean some theorems concerning the arithmetic subgroups in semi-simple Lie groups. According to Margulis "Discrete subgroups of semi-simple Lie groups" (the book published by ...
Let $M$ be the double-torus with a hyperbolic Riemannian metric. The geodesic flow on the unit tangent bundle $T^1M$ has many invariant Borel probability measures. In particular there are closed ...
Let $M$ be a compact Riemannian manifold with metric $g$ and let $f \in Diff(M)$. Under what circumstances is there a natural metric $g_f$ s.t. the associated smooth measure $\nu_f$ is preserved by ...
