On the Classification of Cartan Actions



We study higher-rank Cartan actions on compact manifolds preserving an ergodic measure with full support. In particular, we classify actions by \(\mathbb{R}^{k}\) with k ≥ 3 whose one-parameter groups act transitively as well as nondegenerate totally nonsymplectic \(\mathbb{Z}^{k}\)-actions for k ≥ 3.

Keywords and phrases:
