## Introduction to Foliations and Lie Groupoids

Mrcun No preview available – A holonomy groupoid of a foliation is a basic example of so called Lie groupoids. This is just a small book nicely covering principal notions of the theory of foliations and its relations to recently introduced notions of Lie groupoids and Lie algebroids.

Lie groupoids form an indispensable tool to study the transverse structure of foliations as well as their noncommutative geometry, while the theory of foliations has immediate applications to the Lie theory of groupoids and their infinitesimal algebroids. Introduction to Foliations and Lie Groupoids.

We develop the theory of compactness of abd between toposes, together with associated notions of separatedness. After the first chapter, containing a definition of a foliation and main examples and constructions, the authors introduce the key notion of holonomy of a leaf, a definition of an orbifold and they prove the Reeb and the Thurston stability theorems.

Proper Maps of Toposes I Moerdijk We develop the theory of compactness of maps between toposes, together with associated notions of separatedness. The book starts with a detailed presentation of the main classical theorems in the theory of foliations then proceeds to Molino’s theory, Lie groupoids, constructing the holonomy groupoid of a foliation and finally Lie algebroids.

Chapter 3 contains the Haefliger theorem there are no analytic foliations of codimension 1 on S3 and the Novikov theorem concerning existence of compact leaves in a codimension 1 transversely oriented foliation of a compact three-dimensional manifold. Based on the authors’ extensive teaching experience, this book contains numerous examples and exercises making it ideal for graduate students and their instructors.

Skickas inom vardagar. The Molino structure theorem for foliations defined by nonsingular Maurer-Cartan forms is treated in Chapter 4.
