AFFINE MANIFOLD WITH MEASURE PRESERVING PROJECTIVE HOLONOMY GROUP

  • Published : 2001.02.01

Abstract

In this paper, we prove that an affine manifold M is finitely covered by a manifold $\overline{M}$ where $\overline{M}$ is radiant or the tangent bundle of $\overline{M}$ has a conformally flat vector subbundle of the projective holonomy group of M admits an invariant probability Borel measure. This implies that$x^M$is zero.
