Totally Nondegenerate Models and Standard Manifolds in CR Dimension One
- 10 Downloads
It is shown that two Levi–Tanaka and infinitesimal CR automorphism algebras, associated with a totally nondegenerate model of CR dimension one are isomorphic. As a result, the model surfaces are maximally homogeneous and standard. This gives an affirmative answer in CR dimension one to a certain question formulated by Beloshapka.
