Dynamical Systems Seminar

Title: Actions of the Heisenberg group on Surfaces
Speaker: Kiran Parkhe
Speaker Info: Northwestern University
Brief Description:
Special Note:

After a brief overview of what is known about nilpotent group actions on manifolds, we specialize to actions of the Heisenberg group on surfaces. We give some examples, both for compact surfaces and for the plane. We also discuss constraints imposed by the algebra of the Heisenberg group.
