## Chaotic foliations with Ehresmann connection

Journal of Geometry and Physics. 2024. Vol. 199. Article 105166.

We consider smooth codimension *q* foliations on *n*-dimensional manifolds where 0<q<n. We use Ehresmann connections as a technical tool to introduce the notion of sensitivity to initial conditions for foliations. We extend Devaney's definition of chaos for cascades to foliations with Ehresmann connection. Our main result states that sensitivity to initial conditions of a foliation with Ehresmann connection follows from topological transitivity and density of minimal sets of the foliation. Compactness both minimal sets and the ambient manifold is not assumed. The results are applied to complete Cartan foliations.

We study foliations of arbitrary codimension 𝑞 on 𝑛-dimensional smooth manifolds
admitting an integrable Ehresmann connection. The category of such foliations is
considered, where isomorphisms preserve both foliations and their Ehresman connections.
We show that this category can be considered as that of bifoliations covered by products.
We introduce the notion of a canonical bifoliation and we prove that ...

For any smooth orbifold $\mathcal N$ is constructed a foliated model, which is a foliation
with an Ehresmann, the leaf space of which is the same as $\mathcal N$. We investigate
the relationship relationship between some properties of orbifold and its foliated model.
The article discusses the application to Cartan orbifolds, that is orbifolds endowed with Cartan geometry. ...

A foliation that admits a Weyl structure arising from a pseudo-Riemannian metric of any signature as its transverse structure is called a pseudo-Riemannian Weyl foliation or (for short) a Weyl foliation. We investigate codimension q ≥ 2 Weyl foliations on (not necessarily compact) manifolds. Different interpretations of their holonomy groups are given. We prove a ...

Complete transversely affine foliations are studied. The strong transversal equivalence of
complete affine foliations is investigated, which is a more refined notion than the transverse
equivalence of foliations in the sense of Molino. A global holonomy group of a complete
affine foliations is determined and it is proved that this group is the complete invariant
of the foliation relatively ...

We consider a Cartan foliation (M,F) of an arbitrary codimension q admitting an
Ehresmann connection such that all leaves of (M,F) are embedded submanifolds of M.
We prove that for any foliation (M,F) there exists an open, not necessarily connected,
saturated, and everywhere dense subset M0 of M and a manifold L0 such that the induced
foliation (M0, FM0) ...

Chaotic foliations generalize Devaney's concept of chaos for
dynamical systems. The property of a foliation to
be chaotic is transversal. The existence problem of chaos for a Cartan foliation
is reduced to the corresponding problem for its holonomy pseudogroup of
local automorphisms of a transversal manifold. Chaotic foliations with transversal Cartan ...

We call a foliation (M, F) on a manifold M chaotic if it is topologically transitive and the
union of closed leaves is dense in M. The chaotic topological foliations of arbitrary codimension on
n-dimensional manifolds can be considered as a multidimensional generalization of chaotic dynamical
systems in the Devaney sense. For topological foliations (M, F) covered by ...

The aim of this work is to describe the structure of complete Lorentzian foliations $(M, F)$ of codimension two
on $n$-dimensional closed manifolds. It is proved that $(M, F)$ is either Riemannian or has a constant
transversal curvature and its structure is described. For such foliations $(M, F)$, the criterion is obtained,
reducing the chaos problem in $(M, ...

Reflection in a strictly convex bounded planar billiard acts on the space of oriented lines and preserves a standard area form. A caustic is a curve C whose tangent lines are reflected by the billiard to lines tangent to C. The famous Birkhoff conjecture states that the only strictly convex billiards with a foliation by ...

The paper is focused on the existence problem of attractors for foliations. Since the existence of an attractor is a transversal property of the foliation, it is natural to consider foliations admitting transversal geometric structures. As transversal structures are chosen Cartan geometries due to their universality. The existence problem of an attractor on a complete ...

We prove that every complete foliation (M, F) of codimension q > 1 is either Riemannian or a (Conf (S^q), S^q)-foliation. We further prove that if (M, F) is not Riemannian, it has a global attractor which is either a nontrivial minimal set or a closed leaf or a union of two closed leaves. In ...

We study the problem of classification of complete non-Riemannian conformal foliations
of codimension q > 2 with respect to transverse equivalence. It is proved that two
such foliations are transversally equivalent if and only if their global holonomy groups
are conjugate in the group of conformal transformations of the q-dimensional sphere
Conf (Sq). Moreover, any countable essential subgroup of ...

In this case, the role of a transversal manifold can be played by an arbitrary manifold. We construct examples of structurally stable ...

The basic automorphism group of a Cartan foliation (M,F) is the quotient group of the automorphism group of (M, F ) by the normal subgroup, which preserves every leaf invariant. For Cartan foliations covered by fibrations, we find sufficient conditions for the existence of a structure of a finite-dimensional Lie group in their basic automorphism ...

The category of foliations is considered. In this category
morphisms are differentiable mappings transforming leaves of one
foliation into leaves of the other foliation.
We proved that the automorphism group of the foliations
admitting a transverse linear connection is an infinite-dimensional
Lie group modeled on $LF$-spaces. This result extends the corresponding
result of Macias-Virgos and Sanmartin for Riemannian foliations.
In particular, our ...

Доказано, что любое полное конформное слоение (M,F) коразмерности q> 2 является либо римановым, либо (Conf(S^q),S^q)-слоением. Если (M,F) не является римановым слоением, то оно имеет глобальный аттрактор, представляющий собой либо нетривиальное минимальное множество, либо один замкнутый слой или объединение двух замкнутых слоев. При этом компактность многообразия M не предполагается. В частности, каждое собственное полное конформное не риманово ...

manifolds and complete Riemannian manifolds is generalized to Riemannian foliations with
Ehresmann connection. There are no restrictions on the codimension of the foliation
and the dimension of the foliated manifold.
For a Riemannian foliation $(M, F)$ with Ehresmann connection
