Integration of singular foliations and usage
Speaker: Iakovos Androulidakis, University of Athens
Abstract: We discuss two aspects of integration, one in the (classical) spirit of Sophus Lie and the other in the framework of operator algebras. Starting from the context of regular foliations, we explain the evolution of these processes first to the almost regular case by C. Debord, and finally to singular foliations in full generality (joint work with G. Skandalis). We also give the use of these integration processes; the first integration provides a normal form of the foliation around a (singular) leaf, and the second leads to calculations of the spectrum for longitudinal Laplace operators.
