The $L^p$-diameter of the group of area-preserving diffeomorphisms of $S^2$

We show that for each $p \geq 1,$ the $L^p$-metric on the group of area-preserving diffeomorphisms of the two-sphere has infinite diameter. This solves the last open case of a conjecture of

Geodesics On The Symplectomorphism Group

Let M be a compact manifold with a symplectic form ω and consider the group $${\mathcal{D}_\omega}$$ consisting of diffeomorphisms that preserve ω. We introduce a Riemannian metric on M which is

Bi-invariant metrics and quasi-morphisms on groups of Hamiltonian diffeomorphisms of surfaces

Let \Sigma_g be a closed orientable surface let Diff_0(\Sigma_g; area) be the identity component of the group of area-preserving diffeomorphisms of \Sigma_g. In this work we present an extension of

Quasi-morphisms on the group of area-preserving diffeomorphisms of the 2-disk

Recently Gambaudo and Ghys proved that there exist infinitely many quasi-morphisms on the group ${\rm Diff}_\Omega^\infty (D^2, \partial D^2)$ of area-preserving diffeomorphisms of the 2-disk $D^2$.

DIFFEOMORPHISMS OF THE 2-SPHERE

The analogue of Theorem A for the topological case was proved by H. Kneser [2]. The problem in his case seems to be of a different nature from the differentiable case. J. Munkres [3] has proved that

A note on curvature and fundamental group

Define the growth function γ associated with a finitely generated group and a specified choice of generators {gl7 -, gp} for the group as follows (compare [9]). For each positive integer s let γ(s)

On the autonomous metric on the group of area-preserving diffeomorphisms of the 2-disc

Let $D^2$ be the open unit disc in the Euclidean plane and let $G:= Diff(D2; area)$ be the group of smooth compactly supported area-preserving diffeomorphisms of $D^2$. We investigate the properties

Anti-trees and right-angled Artin subgroups of braid groups

We prove that an arbitrary right-angled Artin group G admits a quasi-isometric group embedding into a right-angled Artin group defined by the opposite graph of a tree, and, consequently, into a pure

Entropy and quasimorphisms

Let $S$ be a compact oriented surface. We construct homogeneous quasimorphisms on $Diff(S, area)$, on $Diff_0(S, area)$ and on $Ham(S)$ generalizing the constructions of Gambaudo-Ghys and
