We consider left-invariant distances $d$ on a Lie group $G$ with the property that there exists a multiplicative one-parameter group of Lie automorphisms $(0, \infty)\rightarrow\mathtt{Aut}(G)$, $\lambda\mapsto\delta_\lambda$, so that $ d(\delta_\lambda x,\delta_\lambda y) = \lambda d(x,y)$, for all $x,y\in G$ and all $\lambda>0$. First, we show that all such distances are admissible, that is, they induce the manifold topology. Second, we characterize multiplicative one-parameter groups of Lie… 

On rectifiable measures in Carnot groups: structure theory

In this paper we prove the one-dimensional Preiss' theorem in the first Heisenberg group $\mathbb H^1$. More precisely we show that a Radon measure $\phi$ on $\mathbb H^1$ with positive and finite

On rectifiable measures in Carnot groups: representation

It is obtained that any geodesic sphere in a Carnot group equipped with an arbitrary left-invariant homogeneous distance is intrinsic the intrinsic C1-rectifiability of almost all the preimages of a large class of Lipschitz functions between Carnot groups.

Rough similarity of left-invariant Riemannian metrics on some Lie groups

. We consider Lie groups that are either Heintze groups or Sol-type groups, which generalize the three-dimensional Lie group SOL. We prove that all left-invariant Riemannian metrics on each such a

Polynomial and horizontally polynomial functions on Lie groups

We generalize both the notion of polynomial functions on Lie groups and the notion of horizontally affine maps on Carnot groups. We fix a subset S of the algebra g\documentclass[12pt]{minimal}

Metric equivalences of Heintze groups and applications to classifications in low dimension

We approach the quasi-isometric classification questions on Lie groups by considering low dimensional cases and isometries alongside quasi-isometries. First, we present some new results related to

On sets with unit Hausdorff density in homogeneous groups

It is a longstanding conjecture that given a subset E of a metric space, if E has finite Hausdorff measure in dimension α and H α (cid:120) E has unit density almost everywhere, then E is an α

This article analyzes sublinearly quasisymmetric homeomorphisms (generalized quasisymmetric mappings), and draws applications to the sublinear large-scale geometry of negatively curved groups and

On Rectifiable Measures in Carnot Groups: Existence of Density

In this paper, we start a detailed study of a new notion of rectifiability in Carnot groups: we say that a Radon measure is Ph\documentclass[12pt]{minimal} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{wasysym}



Isometries of nilpotent metric groups

We consider Lie groups equipped with arbitrary distances. We only assume that the distance is left-invariant and induces the manifold topology. For brevity, we call such object metric Lie groups.

Regularity properties of spheres in homogeneous groups

We study left-invariant distances on Lie groups for which there exists a one-parameter family of homothetic automorphisms. The main examples are Carnot groups, in particular the Heisenberg group with

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,

From homogeneous metric spaces to Lie groups

We study connected, locally compact metric spaces with transitive isometry groups. For all ε ∈ R, each such space is (1, ε)-quasi-isometric to a Lie group equipped with a left-invariant metric.

Geometry of Locally Compact Groups of Polynomial Growth and Shape of Large Balls

We get asymptotics for the volume of large balls in an arbitrary locally compact group G with polynomial growth. This is done via a study of the geometry of G and a generalization of P. Pansu's

Carnot-Carathéodory spaces seen from within

Let V be a smooth manifold where we distinguish a subset H in the set of all piecewise smooth curves c in V. We assume that H is defined by a local condition on curves, i.e. if c is divided into

Hardy spaces on homogeneous groups

The object of this monograph is to give an exposition of the real-variable theory of Hardy spaces (HP spaces). This theory has attracted considerable attention in recent years because it led to a

We study algebraic and geometric properties of metric spaces endowed with dilatation structures, which are emergent during the passage through smaller and smaller scales. In the limit we obtain a
