|Title:||Foliated Groupoids and their infinitesimal data.|
|Speaker:||Madeleine Jotz, Univ. of Goettingen|
|A multiplicative foliation on a Lie group(oid)
is an involutive subbundle of the tangent space,
which is at the same time a subgroup(oid)
of the tangent prolongation group(oid).
Multiplicative foliations on Lie groups are easily
described in terms of their fiber over the unit.
In the groupoid case,
the infinitesimal data of a multiplicative foliation
is related to the Bott connection associated to the
foliation and gives rise to the concept of an IM-foliation
on a Lie algebroid.
After some explanations of these notions and the necessary background, I will define the IM-foliations and state our main result.|
