@article{Labourie1995OnML, title={On manifolds locally modelled on non-riemannian homogeneous spaces}, author={F. Labourie and S. Mozes and R. Zimmer}, journal={Geometric \& Functional Analysis GAFA}, year={1995}, volume={5}, pages={955-965} }

In this paper we continue the investigation of compact manifolds locally modelled on a homogeneous space of a finite dimensional Lie group. We recall that a manifold M is locally modelled on a homogeneous space J\H if there is an atlas on M consisting of local diffeomorphisms with open sets in J\H and where the transition functions are given by restrictions to open sets of translations by elements of H acting on J\H . A basic example is given by a cocompact lattice in J\H , namely a discrete… Expand
