A Fatou-Julia decomposition of transversally holomorphic foliations

Taro Asuke (2010)

Annales de l’institut Fourier

A Fatou-Julia decomposition of transversally holomorphic foliations of complex codimension one was given by Ghys, Gomez-Mont and Saludes. In this paper, we propose another decomposition in terms of normal families. Two decompositions have common properties as well as certain differences. It will be shown that the Fatou sets in our sense always contain the Fatou sets in the sense of Ghys, Gomez-Mont and Saludes and the inclusion is strict in some examples. This property is important when discussing...

A few remarks on the geometry of the space of leaf closures of a Riemannian foliation

Małgorzata Józefowicz, R. Wolak (2007)

Banach Center Publications

The space of the closures of leaves of a Riemannian foliation is a nice topological space, a stratified singular space which can be topologically embedded in k for k sufficiently large. In the case of Orbit Like Foliations (OLF) the smooth structure induced by the embedding and the smooth structure defined by basic functions is the same. We study geometric structures adapted to the foliation and present conditions which assure that the given structure descends to the leaf closure space. In Section...

A finiteness theorem for Riemannian submersions

Paweł G. Walczak (1992)

Annales Polonici Mathematici

Given some geometric bounds for the base space and the fibres, there is a finite number of conjugacy classes of Riemannian submersions between compact Riemannian manifolds.

A note on generalized flag structures

Tomasz Rybicki (1998)

Annales Polonici Mathematici

Generalized flag structures occur naturally in modern geometry. By extending Stefan's well-known statement on generalized foliations we show that such structures admit distinguished charts. Several examples are included.

A proof of the two-dimensional Markus-Yamabe Stability Conjecture and a generalization

Robert Feßler (1995)

Annales Polonici Mathematici

The following problem of Markus and Yamabe is answered affirmatively: Let f be a local diffeomorphism of the euclidean plane whose jacobian matrix has negative trace everywhere. If f(0) = 0, is it true that 0 is a global attractor of the ODE dx/dt = f(x)? An old result of Olech states that this is equivalent to the question if such an f is injective. Here the problem is treated in the latter form by means of an investigation of the behaviour of f near infinity.

A remark on Thurston's stability theorem

Richard Sacksteder (1975)

Annales de l'institut Fourier

The author gives an example showing that Thurston’s stability theorem cannot be generalized to non-oriented foliations.
