Abstract

The subject of smooth transformation groups has been strongly influenced by the following two central problems:
  • Smooth Linearization Problem: Is every smooth action of a compact Lie group on Euclidean space conjugate to a linear action?

  • Smooth Fixed Point Problem: Does every smooth action ofa compact Lie group on Euclidean space have a fixed point?
