Title:"A non-holonomic version of the Moser theorem and diffeomorphism groups."
Seminar:Symplectic Topology Seminar
Speaker:Boris Khesin, University of Toronto
Abstract:
Abstract: We present a non-holonomic version of the classical Moser theorem: two volume forms of equal total volume can be isotoped by the flow of a vector field tangent to a given non-holonomic distribution on a manifold. We also discuss an approach to this problem from the point of view of an infinite-dimensional non-holonomic distribution on the diffeomorphism groups, as well as a non-holonomic optimal transport problem.
