Actions quasi-convexes d'un groupe hyperbolique : flot géodésique

  title={Actions quasi-convexes d'un groupe hyperbolique : flot g{\'e}od{\'e}sique},
  author={Marc Bourdon and Pierre Pansu},
On etudie les actions isometriques quasi-convexes d'un groupe hyperbolique au sens de M. Gromov sur les espaces metriques simplement connexes a courbure strictement negative. A une telle action sont associes : un flot geodesique (qui generalise le flot geodesique habituel sur le fibre unitaire tangent a une variete riemannienne compacte). L'ensemble limite du groupe dans le bord de l'espace, muni d'une structure conforme canonique, sur lequel le groupe agit par transformations conformes. On… Expand
The aim of this note is to study a pair of length functions on a free group, associated to a point in the unprojectivized Outer space. We discuss various characteristics which compare them andExpand
ERGODIC THEOREMS FOR ACTIONS OF HYPERBOLIC GROUPS Mark Pollicott and Richard Sharp University of Warwick and University of Manchester
  • 2012
In this note we give a short proof of a pointwise ergodic theorem for measure preserving actions of word hyperbolic groups, also obtained recently by Bufetov, Khristoforov and Klimenko. Our approachExpand
On the rigidity of discrete isometry groups of negatively curved spaces
Abstract. We prove an ergodic rigidity theorem for discrete isometry groups of CAT(-1) spaces. We give explicit examples of divergence isometry groups with infinite covolume in the case of trees,Expand
Ergodic properties of some negatively curved manifolds with infinite measure
Let $M=X/\Gamma$ be a geometrically finite negatively curved manifold with fundamental group $\Gamma$ acting on $X$ by isometries. The purpose of this paper is to study the mixing property of theExpand
Groups of automorphisms of trees and their limit sets
Let T be a locally finite simplicial tree and let ! ⊂ Aut(T ) be a finitely generated discrete subgroup. We obtain an explicit formula for the critical exponent of the Poincare series associated withExpand
Comparison theorems and orbit counting in hyperbolic geometry
In this article we address an interesting problem in hyperbolic geometry. This is the problem of comparing different quantities associated to the fundamental group of a hyperbolic manifold (e.g. wordExpand
Horofunctions and symbolic dynamics on Gromov hyperbolic groups
Let X be a proper geodesic metric space which is \delta-hyperbolic in the sense of Gromov. We study a class of functions on X, called horofunctions, which generalize Busemann functions. To eachExpand
Rigidity Properties of Group Actions on CAT(0)-Spaces
In this lecture we shall discuss certain aspects of the general rigidity problem of classifying isometric actions of a given group Λ on a CAT(0)-space Y. The CAT(0) property, introduced by AlexandrovExpand
CAT(-1)-spaces, divergence groups and their commensurators
A CAT(−1)-space is a metric geodesic space in which every geodesic triangle is thinner than its associated comparison triangle in the hyperbolic plane ([B], [BriHa], [Gr]). The CAT(−1)-property isExpand
Spherical functions and conformal densities on spherically symmetric $CAT(-1)$-spaces
Let X be a CAT (−1)-space which is spherically symmetric around some point x0 ∈ X and whose boundary has finite positive s−dimensional Hausdorff measure. Let μ = (μx)x∈X be a conformal density ofExpand
