Homomorphisms between Diffeomorphism Groups

Abstract

For r ≥ 3, p ≥ 2, we classify all actions of the groups Diffc(R) and Diff+(S) by Cdiffeomorphisms on the line and on the circle. This is the same as describing all nontrivial group homomorphisms between groups of compactly supported diffeomorphisms on 1-manifolds. We show that all such actions have an elementary form, which we call topologically diagonal… (More)
