### Lipschitz homotopy groups

There is an extensive literature on Lipschitz homotopies of Lipschitz maps. But I haven't seen anything about Lipschitz homotopy groups. We have introduced this notion in an article that you can find ...

### Heisenberg group: function without vertical derivative

Let $\mathbb H$ be Heisenberg group with vector fields $$X=\partial_x - \frac12y\partial_t,\quad Y=\partial_y + \frac12x\partial_t,\quad T=\partial_t$$ and $U\subset\mathbb H$ is an open set. I am ...

### How to prove that the Laplace oparator of the Heisenberg group is sub-elliptic?

The Heisenberg group $H^3$ is the set $\mathbb C\times \mathbb R$ endowed with the group law $$(z,t)\cdot(w,s) =\left (z+w, \,t+s+\tfrac{1}{2}\Im m(z \bar{w})\right).$$ For $z=x+ i y \in \mathbb C$ ...

### Joint representation of the semi-direct product of the metaplectic group and Heisenberg group

Given a symplectic space $W$ over a local field $F$ and a additive character $\psi$ of $F$, we can construct the Weil representation $\omega_\psi$, which can be viewed as a representation of the semi-...

### Contact geometry: approximation of Legendrian mappings

Let $\alpha$ be a standard contact form on $\mathbb{R}^{2n+1}$. We say that a map $f:\mathbb{R}^k\to\mathbb{R}^{2n+1}$ contact if $f^*\alpha=0$. Question 1. Is it true that a $C^1$-contact ...

### Modules of algebras with idempotents and the Stone-von Neumann theorem

The Stone-von Neumann theorem tells us that all unitary irreducible representations of the integrated/exponentiated/Weyl form of the canonical commutation relations (CCR) algebra in finite dimensions ...

### About the purpose of introducing '"groups of Heisenberg type"

I would like to know, can we say that the "groups of Heisenberg type" where introduced by A. Kaplan in "Kaplan, A. (1980). Fundamental solutions for a class of hypoelliptic PDE generated by ...
