Geometry & Topology
Isometries in homogeneous metric manifolds
Alessandro Ottazzi (UNSW)
Wednesday 19 October 2016, 12:00–13:00 in Carslaw 535A.
Please join us for lunch after the talk!
In this seminar we discuss some questions about the isometries of Lie groups endowed with invariant distances or, more generally, of isometrically homogeneous manifolds. We consider some known results, the open questions, and some new contributions. This project is in collaboration with M. Cowling (UNSW) and E. Le Donne (University of Jyvaskyla, Finland).
