Minimal entropy rigidity for foliations of compact spaces
- 53 Downloads
We formulate and prove a foliated version of a theorem of Besson, Courtois, and Gallot establishing the minimal entropy rigidity of negatively curved locally symmetric spaces. One corollary is a foliated version of Mostow’s rigidity theorem.
