Let D(M) denote the group of diffeomorphisms on M and V(M) denote the Lie algebra of vector fields on M . If X: isv a. complete-vector: field- then; Exp tX w i l l denote the one-parameter group of X . A local action <£ of G oh M gives rise to a Lie algebra homomorphism <J>+ from L(G) into V(M) . In particular i f G i s a subgroup- of D(M> and <|> : G x M —> M i s the natural global action (g»p) —> g(p). then G i s called a Lie transformation group of M. If M i s a Hausdorff manifold and G is a Lie transformation group of M we show that <j> i s an isomorphism of L(G) onto <f> (L(G)) and L = <j>+(L(G)) satisfies the following conditions : (A) L consists of complete vector f i e l d s . (B) L has a Banach Lie algebra structure satisfying the following two conditions : (BI) the evaluation map ev : (X,p) —> X(p) is a vector bundle morphism from the t r i v i a l bundle L x M into T(M), (B2) there exists an open b a l l B r(0) of radius r at 0 such that Exp : L — > D(M) i s infective on B r(0). Conversely, i f L i s a suba-lgebra of V(M) (M Hausdorff) satisfying conditions (A) and (B) we show there exists a unique connected Lie transfor-+ mation group with natural action <j> : G x M —> M such that tj) is a Banach Lie algebra isomorphism of L(G) onto L .

The word morphism w i l l mean a C map between K C manifolds. In this chapter, we collect the necessary facts on foliations of manifolds and on i n f i n i t e dimensional Lie groups. Almost a l l of this material w i l l come from Bourbaki [1, §9] or Bourbaki [2, Chapter 3], . _ §1 Foliations and Integrable Subbundles Let M and S be manifolds and p : M —> S a submersion. We then have, for each s e S, a manifold structure induced on the level set p ''"(s) by M . Denote by the manifold which i s the disjoint union over S of p ^(s ) . Each p ^"(s) i s an open submanifold of and topologically i s the topological sum of the topological spaces p ^"(s). Definition (1.1) Let M be a manifold. A foliation of M is a manifold Y having the same point set as M. and satisfying the condition that for a l l x e M, there exists an open submanifold U of M containing x, a manifold Sy and a submersion p : U —> S such that the manifold i s an open submanifold of Y.. The inclusion map of Y into M i s easily seen to be a bijective - 2 -immersion. We c a l l the pair (M, Y) a foliated manifold. A set U is called a (connected) leaf i f i t i s -a (connected) open set i n Y . The maximal connected leaves are therefore the connected components of Y. Definition (1.2) If (M, Y) and .(M1, Y') are foliated manifolds, a morph ism from (M, Y) into (M' , Y'1) is a map which is a morphism of M into M' and. at the same time a morphism of Y into Y' . Using the inclusion map of Y into M, for each x e M we can identify the tangent space T x(Y) with a subspace of T x(M). With this identification we have the following propositions. Proposition (1.3) The spaces T X(Y) are the fibers of a subbundle T(M, Y) of T(M). Furthermore i f Y i s defined by a submersion p : M —> S , then T(M, Y) = ker T(p) . Proposition (1.4) Let (M, Y) and (M*, Y') be two foliated manifolds and f : M —> M' be a morphism. A necessary and sufficient condition that f i s a morphism from (M, Y) into (M', Y') i s that T(f) takes T(M, Y) into T(M*, Y'). Let. F be a subbundle of T(M). We now examine the conditions on F which imply the existence'of a manifold Y such that T(M, Y) = F . If this i s the case then F i s called an integrable subbundle-of T(M) and the foliation i t defines i s unique. - 3 Theorem of Frobenius (1.5) F is integrable i f there exists a family {£.}.,. of sections of F such that 1 l e i —: : (1) for a l l x e M .the set {£^(x) : i e 1} is a total subset of the fiber F of F above x . — . x — (2) for a l l pairs ( i , j) of elements of I and a l l x e M , [ q . ^ ( x ) e F x . §2 Total Differential Equations We now construct a particular subbundle and examine what i t means for i t to be integrable-. This w i l l be the setting for discussing 'generalized di f f e r e n t i a l equations. Suppose M is the product of two manifolds A and B. Let p^ : M — > A and p 2 : M —> B be the projections on the f i r s t and second factors. There are two subbundles, p 1*T(A) and p 2*T(B), of T(M) = T(A) x T(B) associated with p 1 and p 2 . The fiber P j * T ( A ) ^ b^ of p 1*T(A) over (a,b) i s T a(A) x {0b> where 0 b is the zero vector i n T b(B). We identify this fiber with T a(A). Similarly the fiber P 2*T(B) ( a b ) of p 2*T(B): over (a,b) i s {0fl} x T b(B) which i s identified with T b(B) . Let f be a vector bundle morphism from p^*T(A) into p 2*T(B). Then for each (a,b) e M, f is a continuous linear map f(a,b) : T a ( A ) _ > T b ( B ) (after identifying T Q(A) with p 1 * T ( A ) ( a b ) _, 4 -and Tb(B) with P2*T(B) b ) ). Proposition (2.1) The graphs of the f ^ ^ are the fibers of a subbundle of T(M) which we denote-by- F^ . Definition (2.2) Let A' be an open set in, A . A morphism $ : A' —> B is,called an integral of f- if- for a l l a. e A'- one has T (*) = f, ,, SN. 52 a (a,cf>(a)) The following two propositions describe the local uniqueness of integrals. Proposition (2.3) If (f>^ and <j>2 are two integrals of f taking the same value at a point a e A, then they coincide in a neighbourhood of a. Proposition (2.4) Let Z be a manifold, A1 an open set in A, and a e A' . Suppose cfi^ and §^ are morphisms of Z * A' into B such that <j)^ and coincide on Z x {a} and for a l l . z e Z, the morphisms a —> <j>^ (z,a)' and a —> <j>2(z,a) are integrals of f . Then cfi^ and coincide on a neighbourhood of Z x {a} . Suppose now that F^ i s integrable and therefore defines a foliation Y of M with T(M, Y) = F f . Let o> : A' —> B be an integral for f. and define ty : .A' ••—> M by i|»..(,a) = (a, <j>,(a)).. .We have Tip(T(A')) C F^ since .<j> was an integral and Proposition (1.4) gives that ty i s also a morphism from A' into Y . Let v e T A1 . Now a a W " ( va» V'V* = ( v a ' f ( a . ( a ) ) ^ ^ w h i c h i m p l i e s T a * i s a n - 5- -isomorphism (of Banach spaces) of T A' onto F^. ,, • This means ty 1 ' a (a,<j>(a)) i s a local diffeomorphism into Y at a and as a was arbitrary we have proven the following result. Proposition (2.5) If_ F^ is --int e grab le and- cj> : A' —> M i s an. integral for f then {(a, cj>(a))« :. a e A' } is a. leaf (open set) of the foliation defined by F^ . We complete this section with the existence theorem for integrals. Proposition (2.6) Suppose that F^ is integrable. Let (Z q, a Q) e Z x A and p be a morphisny from- Z» into- B- Then there exists- an- open neighbourhood Z' x A' of. ( Z Q J a Q) in Z x A and a morphism <J> : Z' x A' > B such that for every z e Z1 the morphism a —> cj)(z,a) of A' into B 1 i s an integral for f and p(z) = <}>(z,ao) . We w i l l mainly use this with Z = B and p = identity. §3 Lie Groups and Lie Algebras A Lie group G i s a group, which is also a Banach manifold (not necessarily f i n i t e dimensional) such that the operations of multiplica-tion G x G —> G and taking inverses G —> G are morphisms. G w i l l be called f i n i t e (infinite) dimensional i f i t s manifold structure i s modelled on a f i n i t e (infinite) dimensional Banach space. '. - 6 -A Banach Lie Algebra L is a Lie algebra with a Banach .space structure such that the bracket [ , ] : L x L —> L i s continuous. We c a l l L f i n i t e (infinite) dimensional i f the underlying vector space is f i n i t e (infinite) dimensional. Almost a l l of the standard f i n i t e dimensional Lie group theory carries over to i n f i n i t e dimensions. If G i s a Lie group then there is a Banach Lie algebra L(G) corresponding to G arid an exponential map from L(G) into G, which is a local diffeomorphism at 0 . (We break with the usual convention of having L(G) equal to the set of l e f t invariant vector fields on G and instead i t w i l l be the set of right invariant vector fields. Defining L(G) to be the right invariant vector fields w i l l make the definition of an infinitesimal action in Chapter 2 easier. This i s a slight change since i f we identify L(G) with T e(G), the tangent space at the identity, then the only difference between the right invariant Lie algebra structure and l e f t invariant Lie algebra struc-ture i s that the bracket differs by a sign.) The major difference between the f i n i t e and i n f i n i t e dimensional theories is that there exist i n f i n i t e dimensional Banach Lie algebras L for which there does not exist any Lie group G such that L = L(G). If a Lie group G does exist such that L = L(G) then the Banach Lie algebra L i s called enlargeable. For an example of a non-enlargeable Banach Lie algebra see Est and Korthagen [4]. Although L may not be enlargeable, a Banach Lie algebra closely related to L is always enlargeable. This Lie algebra i s the path space of L which we now examine. - 7 -Let BL denote the category of Banach Lie algebras with conti-nuous homomorphisms as morphisms. Then we have the path functor A : BL —> BL which takes L to AL = {f | f : [0,1] —-> L continuous with f(0) = 0 } with the following Lie algebra structure. If f, g e AL then the norm of f i s max | | f ( t ) | | and the bracket i s defined te[0,l] pointwise, [f, g] (t) = [ f ( t ) , g(t)]. If cf> : L —> L' i s a morphism of Banach Lie algebras then Act : AL —> AL' is given by Act'(f) = <f>°f . Theorem (3.1) Let L be a Lie algebra and AL be as above. Then (1) the -endpoint evaluation map f —> f ( l ) from AL into L is continuous. (2) AL is enlargeable. Proof : The proof of (1) is obvious from the definition of AL . The reader i s referred to Swierczkowski [8] for a proof of (2). For later reference, we now l i s t some facts on subgroups and subalgebras of Lie groups and Banach Lie algebras. The proofs are in Bourbaki [2, Chapter 3]. Definition (3.2) A subset H of G i s a Lie subgroup of G i f i t i s a subgroup and a submanifold of G . Proposition (3.3) Let H be a subgroup of a Lie group G . A necessary and sufficient condition for H to be a Lie subgroup is that there exists a point h e H and an open neighbourhood U of h in G such that - 8, -H fl U i s a submanifold of G .. Let L be a Banach Lie algebra. A Banach Lie subalgebra of L i s a closed vector subspace of L which is closed under, the bracket operation, i.e. a subalgebra. If H is a Lie subgroup of a Lie group G then using the inclusion we identify L(H) with a Banach Lie subalgebra of L(G) which sp l i t s i n L(G). (A closed subspace F of a Banach space E i s said to s p l i t i f there exists a closed subspace F^ such that F + F 1 = E and F f ^ = 0 ). If i n addition H i s normal then L(H) i s an ideal in L(G), i.e. [L(G), L(H)] C L(H). Proposition (3.4) Let G b,e a,Lie., group and H be a no.rmal Lie subgroup of G . Then there exists.a structure of a Lie group on G/H such that the projection map i s a submersion and L(G/H) = L(G)/L(H) . Proof : Bourbaki [2, prop. 11, p.105 and p.141] . - 9" -Chapter 2 Local and Infinitesimal Group Actions We determine the correspondence between local group actions and infinitesimal group actions in "this chapter. Our treatment of this subject follows that of Palais [7]. Before proceeding we establish some notation conventions. G w i l l denote a connected Lie group and L(G) w i l l be i t s Banach Lie algebra of right invariants vector fields. Right multiplication, by an element g e G w i l l be denoted by R(g) . The Identity element in. G w i l l be denoted by e . M w i l l denote a manifold and V(M) w i l l be the Lie algebra of vector fields on M . §4 Local Group Actions Definition (4.1) A local (left), action of G on M is a morphism <j> from an open set D containing {e} x M in G x M into M satisfying the following conditions : (1) <|>.(e, p) - p for a l l p e M . (2) If (h, p), (g, <Kh, p)) and (gh, p) a l l belong to D then <j>(gh, p) = Kg. <f>(h, p)) • If D = G x M then <{> is called a global action of G on M . - 10. -Let D P = { g : (g, p) e D } . The morphism g —> <j>(g, p) of D P into M w i l l be denoted by <J>P . The definition of local action we have given i s from Palais [7]. Bourbaki [2, p.118] gives what appears to be a different definition of local action as follows. Definition (4.1(a)) (Bourbaki) A local (left) action of G on M i s a morphism ty defined on an open set ft of G x M containing {e} x. M , with values i n M, possessing the following properties (1) ty(e, p) = p for a l l p e M ; (2) there exists a neighbourhood ft^ of .{e} x .{e} x M i n G x G x M such that, for (g, g', p) c ft^, the elements (g 1, p), Cgg'> P)> (g. Mg', P)) are in ft and ty(g, ty(g', p)) = ty(gg', p) . This i s slightly different from the version in Bourbaki since we aren't considering actions of "grouplets". Proposition (4.2) Definition (4.1) and Definition (4.1(a)) are equivalent. Proof : Def.(4.1) implies Def.(4.1(a)) Let ty = <j) and ft = D . We have to find an open set ft^ i n G x G x M satisfying condition (2) i n Def.(4.1(a)). Define 6 from G x D into G x M by 6(g,. h, p) = (g, <j)(h, p)), then 5 ^(D) is open and contains {e} x {e} x M . Define y from G x D into G x M by Y(g» h, p) = (gh, p) then y *(D) i s open and contains {e} x {e} x M . - 11 -Let ft^ = 6 "'"(D) H y "^(D), then ft^ i s an open neighbourhood of {e} x {e} x M and i f (g, h, p) e we have (h, p) e D; (g, (j)(h, p)) e D since (g, h, p) e 6 "''(D); and (gh,, ,p) e D since (g, b, p) e y ^ " ( n ) « Then Def.(4.1) (2) gives Kg,ty(h, p)) = Mg, $(h, p » = eV(gh, p) = \Hgh, p) and condition (2) of Def.(4.1(a)) i s satisfied. Def.(4.1(a)) Implies Def.(4.1) Let <f> = ty . We w i l l find D such that condition (2) of Def. (4.1) i s s a t i s f i e d . Let ft^ be as i n Def.(4.1(a)). Since ft^ is an open neighbourhood of {e} x {e} x M we can find neighbourhoods and of e i n G and W of p in M such that V x TJ x w C I ft, . For P P P P 1 each p e M, l e t G = exp (15^(0)) where 15^ (0) i s the b a l l of radius r centered at 0 in L(G) and r is so small that G C v H U • Then P P P G i s connected, G = G ~ 1, G C U , G C V , and G x G x W i s P P P P P P P P P P an open neighbourhood of (e, e, p) contained in ft^ . Also ^p^p e^ a r e ordered by inclusion so i f we have G and G then either G C G or x y x y G C G • Define D = ( J G x w and suppose (h, p), (g, <j>(h, p)) and 7 X peM P P (gh, p) e D . Since D i s "symmetric" (each G^ was symmetric) we have (h, p) e D implies (h \ p) e D . Now by the definition of D ; (gh, p) and (h p) belonging to .D means there exists x e M such that (h 1 , p) e G x W and there exists y z M such that (gh, p) e G x w '. x x ' & ' v y y By the remark above either G C G or G (~ G so (without loss of x y y x generality) assuming the latter we have (gh, p) e G x W also. Now X X Gl C V n U implies ((gh)(h - 1), p) e G\ x w. . C V y x W , i.e. A A. A. - A A A A (g, p) e V x .w . We also have (h, p) e G x W CT U x W which means X X X X X X (g, h, p) e V x U x W G fi, and condition (2). of Def. (4.1(a)) gives X X X X tHg", <K-h-> P')'> K"g-» vb-(-h-, p)-)* =*Hgh'» p ) = ( f i'(gh, p). Examples of local actions Example (4.3) : Let H be a paracompact manifold and £ be a vector f i e l d on M . Then the flow (see Bourbaki [1, §9]) of 5 i s a local l e f t action of CR. on M . Example (4.4) : If E and F are Banach spaces then denote by Hom(E, F) the Banach space of continuous linear maps from E into F and by GL(F) the Lie group of invertible elements in Hom(F, F). GL(F) i s open in Hom(F, F). (See Lang [5, p.5] for proofs). Let M = Hom(F, E), G be the additive Lie group Hom(E, F), and I„ be the identity in GL(F). Define r the morphism y : G x M —> Hom(F, F) by y(g> P) = g°P + 1- • Let r D = y 1(GL(F)); then D i s open and contains {0} x M. Define the local action <j> : D —> M of G on M by c{>(g, p) = P°(g°P + I - p ) ^ • <(> i s a r local action for ; CD cK-o-, p) = p°(p + i F ) _ 1 = P (2) <f>(g, ;<Kh,.

Definition (5.1) A (left) action of L on M i s a Lie algebra homomorphism 6 : L —> V(M) satisfying the condition that the evaluation map (x, p) —> 8(x.)(p) i s a vector bundle morphism from the t r i v i a l vector bundle L x M into T(M). Remarks : (1) If L = L(G) for some Lie group G then 0 is called an infinitesimal (left) action of G on M . (2) If L is f i n i t e dimensional then the evaluation map is automatically a vector bundle morphism (Bourbaki [2, Remarque p.140]). - 14 -Example (5.2) : An infinitesimal group action Suppose H i s a real Hilbert space with scalar product ( , ) . Let M = H and G be H with the additive group structure of H . Then L(G) = H also. Define 6 : L(G) —> V(M) by 6(Y)(X) = 2(X,Y)X - (X,X)Y. We show that 0 i s an infinitesimal action of G on M . (1) The map e : (Y,X) —> 6(Y)(X) i s a vector bundle morphism from L(G) x M into T(M) : e i s obviously a morphism. Let Hom(H, H) denote the continuous linear maps from H into H and let ^ e H'om(H, H) be the map Y — > G (Y) (X). We need that the map X —> 8 of H into x Hom(H, H) is continuous, but this i s the case since ( , ) : H x H —> H is continuous. (2) 0 i s a Lie algebra homomorphism : 0 is obviously linear. In order to prove that 0 preserves brackets i t suffices to show that [0(Y), 0(Z>] = 0 for any Y and Z in L(G) since L(G) = H is abelian. By definition [0(Y), 0(Z)](X) = D0(Z)| y(0(Y)(X)) - D0(Y)| x(0(Z)(X)) . A short calculation gives D9(W)| (H) =2 (X,Y)H + (H,Y)X - (X,H) and substituting this into the above equation with W = Z (and Y) and H = 0(Y)(X) (and 0(Z)(X) ) makes the equation identically zero. Therefore 0 preserves brackets. Suppose <j> : D —> M is a local action of G on M . Define V"": L (G) —> V(M) by <}>+(v) (p) = T(<j>)(v(e), 0 ) where 0 p is the zero vector in T (M) . P Proposition (5.3) cj>+ is. an infinitesimal action of G on M . + Proof : Evaluation map of <j> is a vector bundle morphism : We have the following sequence df maps L (G) x M —> L (G) x G x. M — ^ % . T D — > TM (v, p) > (v, e, p) > (v(e), 0 ) > T(<^)(v(e), 0 ) where *£ i s the t r i v i a l i z i n g vector bundle isomorphism (v, g) —> v(g) of L (G) x G into T(G) and y is the zero section. The fact that the evaluation map i s a vector bundle morphism then follows from the fact that 6 and T(<f>) are. (j)**" is a Lie algebra homomorphism : t}>+ i s obviously linear and therefore i t remains to show that i t preserves brackets. Let p e M, suppose (g, p) E D and <f>(g, P) = Q » then i f h e D Pg ^ fl D q we have (h, q) = (h, <f>(g, p)), (hg, p) and (g, p) e D which implies <j>(h, g) = <K'h> c}>(g, p)) = tj>(hg, p) by Def. (4.1) (2). This means $q = c})P<>R(g) on the open set D^" 1 H D q containing e which implies T(cj>q) = T(<j>P) °T(R(g) ) on T(D Pg - 1 Tl Dq) and that T £ ( G ) C T(D Pg - 1 H D q). Then for v e L (G) we have 4>+(v)(<j>P(g)) = <j>+(v)(q) = T(<J>)(v(e), Oq) = T(<j>q)(v(e)) = T(<j, P)oT(R(g))(v(e)) = T(<j>P) (v(g)) which implies that v and 4>+(v) are <{>P-related vector fields. Then [v, v'] i s <f>P-related to [<)>+(v), <j)+(v')] (Bourbaki [ , 8.5.6 p.17]) . Then <{>"*" i s a Lie algebra homomorphism for <f>+([v, v*])(p) = * + ( [ v , v'])(<J>P(e)) = T(<j>P)([v, v'](e)) = [<J>+(v), <J>+(v')]0f>P(e)) = [$ + (vT, <j»-+(v')T(p)' where p was an arbitrary point of M. This completes the proof. ty+ i s called the infinitesimal generator of <j> . If an infin i t e -simal action 8 of G on M i s equal to <f>+ for some local action ty then 0 is called generating. Example (5.4) Let ty be the local action considered in Example (4.4). Let X e L(G) = Hom(E, F). Then cp+(X)(p) = T(«J,)(X(0), 0 p) d_ dt d_ dt <J)(tX, p ) t=0 p o ( t X ° p + I ^ ) - 1 = - p ° X ° p t=0 • - 17 -§6 The Infinitesimal Graph Let 6 : L(G) —> V(M) be an infinitesimal l e f t action and l e t :Pg : G x M —> G and p^ : G x M —> M be the canonical projections. Define f from p *T(G) into ' p *T(M) by f ( g j m ) ( X ( g ) ) = 6(X)(m) where X(g) is the value of X e L(G) at g . (See §2 for definitions of p *T(G) and p *T(M) ). We have f(X(g), 0 J = ( 0 . 9(X)(p)) and f i s \> W P 6 a vector bundle morphism since the evaluation map (X, p) —> 6(X)(p) was assumed to be a vector bundle morphism of L(G) x M into T(M). Then prop.(2.1) implies that the graphs of the .f ^ ^ , t(X(g), e(X)Cp)") : p e M }., are the fibers of a subbundle F f of T(G) x T(M). F f is called the infinitesimal graph of 9 . Proposition (6.1) F f is an integrable subbundle of T(G) x T(M) . Proof : Consider the family of sections ^x^XeL(G) °^ ^ where ? x ( g . P) = (X(g), e(X)(p)).

P) = ([X, Y](g), [9(X), 6(Y)](p)) = ([X, Y](g), 6([X, Y](p» - 18 -since 0 i s a Lie algebra homomorphism. This shows £y](g, p) e and the Theorem of Frobenius (1.5) implies F^ i s integrable. By the definition of integrability there is a fo l i a t i o n Y of G x M such that T(GxM, Y) = F £ . Proposition (6.2) For : g e G, let R(g) be the morphism of G x M into i t s e l f given by R(g)(h, p) = (hg, p), then R(g) i s also a morphism of Y into Y where Y is the foliation defined by any infinitesimal action 9 of G on M . Proof : T(R(g))(T ( h j p )(GxM, Y)) = T(R(g))({(X(h), 0(X)(p) : X e L(G)» = {(X(hg), 9(X)(p) : X e L(G)} = T(hg,p) ( G X M> Y ) and prop.(1.4) implies that R(g) is a morphism of Y into Y . Remark : Since R(g) i s a diffeomorphism i t takes a maximal connected leaf of Y diffeomorphically onto another maximal connected leaf of Y . The next proposition explains the name "infinitesimal graph". Proposition (6.3) If $ i s any local l e f t action with domain D and infinitesimal generator (f>+ then the morphism (j>P : g -—> <}>(g, P) of D P - 19..-into M i s an integral (Def. (2 .2 ) ) of f (where f is defined as above with 8 = cj> ) . Also the graph of is a leaf containing (e, p) of the foli a t i o n Y and the morphism : Y —>. G given by ^pCg* P) = g i s a local diffeomorphism at each point of Y . Proof -: -Let X e L(G) . -Then . T (4>P)(X(g)) = T (4>P)°T (R(g))(X(e)) = Te(<j>-PoR(g))(X(e).) = T e ( < ^ ( g , p ) ) ( X ( e ) ) = *+(X)(Mg, p)) . Hence T <|>P = f. j r ), N. and so d>P is an integral of f . The fact that g (g,<f>p(g)) the graph of <J)P i s a leaf containing (e, p) follows from prop. (2.5). Let (g, p) be any point in Y . Then ir^ is a local d i f f eomor-phism at (e, p) because N^ = {(h, <j)p(h)) : h e D P) i s an open neigh-bourhood of (e, p) i n Y mapped diffeomorphically onto D P by ir^ . Now R(g)(Np) is an open neighbourhood of (g, p) in Y by the remark after prop. (6.2) and -nn is a local diffeomorphism on R(g) (N ) which Lr P completes the proof. We now show that two local actions with the same infinitesimal generator coincide in a neighbourhood of {e} x M . We need a lemma. Lemma (6.4), If an infinitesimal action 8 of G on M i s generating then,the foliation Y defined by the infinitesimal graph of 0 i s a Hausdorff manifold. Proof : See Palais [7, Theorem VIII, p.44]. Note : Palais' deM-niL't*ion^of-'leaf--*-di-f-fers"-slightlyfrom'ours; Let <j> and ty be local actions of G on M with domains and .respectively.

Uniqueness Theorem (6.5) If ty and ty have the same infinitesimal generator 8 then ty and ty coincide on D . Proof : By prop.(6.3) both ty^ and ty^ are integrals of f (where f is defined as i n prop.(6.3)). Let A C be the set of points on which <J>P and ty^ agree. A i s nonempty since <}>P(e) = ty^(e) = p . Prop. (2.3) implies that A i s open. Let Y as usual be the fol i a t i o n defined by the infinitesimal graph of 8 . A i s closed in since A = $ ^ (A) where $ i s the morphism from into Y x Y given by $(g) = (<|>P(g)> ^ ( g ) ) and A i s the diagonal i n Y x Y which i s a closed set since Y i s Hausdorff (Lemma (6.4)). Then A = D since D i s connected. P P §7' Existence Theorem We now give necessary and sufficient conditions on M for an infinitesimal action of G on M to be generating. Theorem (7.1) A necessary and' sufflcient''condition'that an, infinitesimal action 8 of G on M is generating i s that the foliation defined by the infinitesimal graph of 9 is a Hausdorff manifold. Proof : This theorem i s proven in Palais [7, pp.52-58] for f i n i t e dimensional M . The same proof works i n i n f i n i t e dimensions. A weaker theorem giving sufficient (but not necessary) conditions for 9 to be generating i s proven i n Bourbaki" [-2V do-r.'S','- p-.4«84-]*.~ Example (7.2) : Local action generated by an infinitesimal action Consider the infinitesimal action defined i n Example (5.2). Keeping the same notation, let exp : L(G) —> G be the exponential map, then exp = id. If X e V(M), l e t 6 denote the local one-parameter X,t group defined by X .

Therefore in order to find the local action <j> corresponding to 9 we must find the local one-parameter group corresponding to 0(Y).

TT^ : Y —> M is the morphism given by ^gCgj p) = 8 • Definition (8.1) 0 is called a uniform infinitesimal (left) action of G on M i f there exists a connected neighbourhood V of e i n G such that for each p e M the connected component containing (e, p) i n E fl rr ^(y) i s mapped one-to-one onto V by ir-, . V i s called a uniform neighbourhood for 0' . Theorem (8.2) Each maximal connected leaf E of Y is a covering space for G with covering map TT . = TT^| i f and only i f 0 i s uniform. Proof : Suppose- 8 is uniform. Let V be a uniform neighbourhood. We hav.e to show that for each g c G there exists an open neighbourhood W 'such that T T ^"(W) i s a disjoint union, of open sets in- E- , each of which i s mapped diffeomorphically onto W by TT . We f i r s t show that TT(E) = G : Let (g, p) e E , then by prop.. (6.2), R(g "S-(E). = E^ since. R(g - 1)(g, p) = (e, p)~ and- TT(E)- =• ffoR-(gY(r ) = R(g)°TT_(E ) . So i f P 13 P TT (E ) = G then TT(E) = G also. This w i l l be proven by showing that for G p every positive integer n ; V n CZ TT (E ), then T r 0(E ) w i l l equal G Cr p V J p since any neighbourhood of e in a connected group generates the group. Since V i s a uniform neighbourhood for 8 this i s true for n = 1 . Assume now that V CT . 7 r_(E ), we w i l l show that V C nn(T. ) also. (j p b p > n-l' Let g be any point of V then by the induction hypothesis there exists q-e M such that (g, q) e E P . By prop.(6.2), R ( g _ 1 ) ( E P ) - E Q . Now V C T G(£q) since V i s uniform and so V CZ TrG°R(g~'L) (E p) = R(g _ 1) 0 T r G(^p) • This means gV C TT„(E ) for each g e V , i.e. V CL TT_(E ) . O p b p Now l e t g be any point of G . Let U be a symmetric connected 2 neighbourhood of e in G such that U C V, then W = Ug i s a neighbourhood of g . We w i l l show that TT ^ (W) i s a disjoint union of open sets in E , each of which i s mapped diffeomorphically onto W by TT . Since Tf(E) = G we have TT (^W) i s nonempty. Let C be any component in E of TT 1(W) = ir ^ "(Ug). If (h, s) is any point of C then h e Ug which means gh 1 e U 1 = U and Ugh * C D D C ' V , This implies that Ugh i s a uniform neighbourhood for 8 since V was. Prop. (6.2) gives R ( h _ 1 ) ( E ) = E G since R(h - 1)(h, s) = (e, s) and RCn" 1)(C) is the component of (e, s) i n ,Eg O iT^CUgh x) . But ;%Q maps .the component of (e, s) i n E A Tr~x(Ugh x) diffeomorphically onto Ugh x since s G _1 Ugh i s a uniform neighbourhood which means IT maps C diffeomorphi-c a l l y onto R(h) (Ugh x) = Ug and therefore the pair (E, TT) i s a covering space for G . Conversely suppose TT I : E, —> G i s a covering map. Let V q be any simply connected open neighbourhood of e . Then the component containing (e, q) i n ir ~*"(V) H E" i s a covering space for V and G q therefore must be mapped diffeomorphically onto V . We w i l l need the following theorem i n Chapter 3 . Theorem (8.3) I f G i s simply connected and M i s a Hausdorff manifold then a uniform i n f i n i t e s i m a l l e f t action 9 : L(G) —> V(M) generates a global action of G on M . Proof : By the above theorem each leaf E i s a covering space f o r G and since G i s simply connected ^QIJ- : E — > G i s a diffeomorphism. For p e M denote t h i s d i f feomorphism of E onto G by TT? • As usual denote P G by f, the vector bundle morphism from Pg*T(G) into p^*T(M) induced by 0 , and by Y the f o l i a t i o n of G x M defined by the integrable subbundle F f : Define <J>P : G —> M to be <f>P(g) = * o (Tr P) - 1(g) where TT m : Y —> M i s TTM(g> m) = m. F i n a l l y define tj> : G x M —> M to be (|>(g, p) = <j>P(g). We w i l l show that <j> i s a global group action with i n f i n i t e s i m a l generator - 26..--G . Let v E L ( G ) . Note that each cj>P is an integral for f since T((j>P)(v(g)) = TCTr^oTCTT^^CvCg)) = T(TT M ) (v(g), f n , (V(g))) •(g,o£) (g)) = f n (v(g)) as ( T r P ) _ 1 ( g ) = <j>P(g) . (g,*P(g)> ty is a global action : (1) ty(e, p) = TT m° ( T T P ) 1(e) = Tr M(e, p) = p since (e, p) is the unique point in E^ with f i r s t component equal to e . (2) Show ty(g, ty(h, p)) = ty(gh, p) for a l l g, h e G and p E M. Define ty-^(g) = <Kg> <J>(h, p)) and = "f^S*1, P) • B y t' i e definition of ty , the graph of ty^ is p) a n c* t^ i e g r aPh of ty^ is R(h _ 1)(E p) = l since R(h _ 1)(h, ty(h, p)) = (e, <j>(h, p)). Then since ^ K h j p ) i g o n g _ t o _ o n e o n E ^ ^ ^ we have <f>(g, <f>(h, p)) = tyigh, p). We now show that ty : G x M —> M i s a morphism. For p E M , define P f A = < g E G : there exists some open neighbourhood U of g and some open neighbourhood V of p such that ty i s a morphism on U x V j- . - 27 -, (a) A F contains e and'therefore Ap £ 0 ' . Let p : M —> M be the identity. By prop. (2.6) there exists a connected open neighbourhood U x V of (e, p) in G x M and a morphism if) : U x v —> M such that for a l l m e V the morphism. i p m : g — > i|>(g, m) is-an integral for f with i|>m(e") = p(m)- = m- .» <j>™ is- also an integral for f on U x v with <J>m(e) = i^ m(e). . Since- M i s Hausdorff and U i s connected i t follows, just as in the proof of theorem (6.4) using the uniqueness of integrals, tHat <j>m = ^ m on U ; i.e. § = on U x V and A? . contains e . (b) A P is open i n G by definition. (c) A? i s closed in G .• Let g e A P , by (a) above there exists a connected neighbourhood U x V of (e, <J>(g, P)) such that <}> is a morphism on U x V . We denote <|> by g on U x v to emphasize that i t i s a morphism. Furthermore we assume U = U x . Since h —> (j>(h, p) i s an integral, and so in particular continuous, there exists a neighbourhood N of g such that c|>(N, p) CI V. Let h e N f\ Ug H A? ; h exists since g e A P and N O Dg i s a neighbourhood of g . By the definition of A P there exists a connected neighbourhood x of (h, p) on which <j> i s a morphism and since <Kh, p) e V we can assume (shrinking i f necessary) that <f)(h, V^) C V . Define y : Uh x V x —> M by y(k, m) = 6(kh~ 1, <J>(h, m)). y i s a morphism on Uh x since i t is a composition of morphisms; y = go(R(h x) x . Now for m e V^, we have the morphism ym : U..J, —-> M given by - 28 -y m(k) = y(k, m) with y(h, ro) = -<j)(h, m) . We w i l l show that y m i s an integral for f and then (as in the proof of (a)) since <j>m i s also an integral with the same value at h, <f>m w i l l equal y m and <J> w i l l be a morphism on Uh x . Let g m : U —> M be the morphism defined by B m(k) = B(k, m). Since g = ty on U-x V we: have g m = <f>m on U . Let X e L(G), to show that y is <an integral'we need that T (y m) (X(g)) = f m (X(g).) = . e(x.).(.Ym(g)) . g (g,Y (g)) We have T ( Y m)(X(g)) = T ( B ( | , ( h' m )oR(h" 1))(X(g)) (by def. of y) o o = T ( B < | ) ( h' m ))(X(gh" : i :)) (s'ince X e L(G)) • gh" 1 = 8 ( X ) ( ^ h ' m ) ( g h _ 1 ) ) (since B* ( h' m ) = * K h ' m ) i s an integral of f ) l ( X ) ( B * ( h ' m ) o R ( h - 1 ) ( g ) ) i(X)(y m(g)) and so y m i s an integral of f . Therefore ty is a morphism on Uh x and h e Ug implies g E U \ = Uh , i.e. (g, p) E Uh x and g E A P showing that ' A P = A P . Since G is. connected (a), (b) and (c) imply that A P = G . As p was arbitrary ty is a morphism on G x M . It remains to show that e i s the infinitesimal generator of ty. - 2.9 -Let X e L(G), then Te<j>P(X(e)) = f: (X(e)) (since <j-P is an (e,(j)P(e)) integral for f) 6(X)(<J,P(e)) = 0(X)( P) showing that 9 is- the- infinitesimal- generator-of? <J> and completing the proof of the theorem. The proof that <j> i s a morphism is essentially the same as the proof showing that the flow of a vector f i e l d i s a morphism. (Cf. Lang [5, p.80]). Proposition (8.4) Let ty : G x M —> M be a global l e f t action of G a Hausdorff manifold M. Let X e L(G) and {6t} be the one-parameter group corresponding to <j>+(X). Then S t(p) = <J)(expGtX, p) for a l l p e M Proof : <J)(expG0-X, p) = A ( e , p) = p and • — <J.(expGtX, p) = jj^ <j)(expG(s+t)X, p) s=0 on d 1 (f>(expGsX, c()(expGtX,. p)) s=0 since .ty is a global action ds + • + = ty (X) (ty (exp GtX, p)) by definition of <j> The result then, follows from the uniqueness theorem- for- d-if"ferential equations. - 30 -Chapter 3 Connected Lie.Transformation Groups Let D(M) be the group of diffeomorphisms of the manifold M .. A Lie group G is- called a- Lie- transformation group of M;> if-the-underlying group of G is a subgroup of D(M) and i f the map (gj P) —> g(p) of G x M into M i s a morphism. Of course one could give G the discrete topology and this would automatically be true. A nontrivial example is the group I(M) of isometries of a f i n i t e dimen-sional Riemannian manifold, which is a Lie transformation group with respect to the compact open topology. Further examples of Lie transforma-tion groups can be found in H. Chu and S. Kobayashi [3]. The main result of this chapter is to show that there i s a one-to-one correspondence between connected Lie transformation groups of M and certain subalgebras of the Lie algebra of vector fields V(M) where M i s a Hausdorff manifold. In this chapter M w i l l always denote a Hausdorff manifold. §9 The Image of the Infinitesimal Generator of a. Lie Transformation Group Let G be a Lie transformation group of M . Then there is a global action of G on M with infinitesimal generator (j) : L(G) —> V(M) . We now examine the image of (j> i n V(M). Let exp : L(G) —> G be the exponential map. - 31 -+ Proposition (9.1) The image <f> (L(G)) consists of complete vector fields and the one-parameter group corresponding to <f> (X) is exp tX . Proof : exp tX .is a one-parameter group and d_ dt exp tX(p) = cf, (X)(p) t=0. The result then follows from the uniqueness theorem for di f f e r e n t i a l equations. + Proposition (9.2) <f> is injective. Proof : If <j,+ (X) = 0 then d_ dt exp tX(p) = t=s dt t=0 exp((s + t)(X)(p) d_ dt t=0 exp tX(exp sX(p)) = <j> (X)(exp sX(p)) ' = 0 exp sX(p) for a l l p e M . This means exp tX(p) = p for a l l t e R and a l l p E M, i.e. exp tX = id which implies that X = 0 since exp has a radius of i n j e c t i v i t y at 0 in L(G). M Proposition (9.3) $ (L(G)) 'possesses a Banach Lie algebra structure such that the evaluation map (Y,. p) —> Y(p) is a vector bundle morphism from - 32 -the t r i v i a l vector bundle <J>-' (L(G) ) x M into T(M) and (j>+ '• L(G) —> <j>+(L(G)) i s a Banach Lie- algebra isomorphism. Furthermore, -this Banach space structure is necessarily unique. Proof : By prop. ( 9 . 2 ) <j>+ : L(G) —> <j>+(L(G)) is a Lie algebra isomor-phism and hence induces a Bariach Lie algebra structure on <f>"*"(L(G)) making + + <J> a Banach Lie algebra* isomorphism; Define 3 : <j> (L(G)) x M —> L(G) x M H — 1 by 3(Y, p) = ((<f> ) (Y), p) , then 3 is easily seen to be. a vector bundle morphism. Now prop. ( 5 . 3 ) gives.that the map a : (X, p) —> <j>+(X) (p) of L(G) x M —> T(M) is a vector bundle morphism. The evaluation map + (j> (L(G)) x M —> T(M) is equal to a°3 and therefore is a vector bundle morphism. The uniqueness of the Banach space structure comes from the following proposition. Proposition ( 9 . 4 ) Let E be a vector bundle over M and l e t V be a vector space of sections :of E . If V admits two Banach space structures such that the evaluation map (X, p) — > X(p) of V x M. into E i s continuous with respect to both then the identity map from V into V i s a homeomorphism, i.e. the two norms are equivalent. Proof : Let and denote V with respect to the two topologies and let e i : x M —> E ( i = 1, 2) be the evaluation maps. By the closed graph theorem, i n order to show that id : ••—-> V 2 is continuous, i t i s enough to show that the diagonal i s closed in x . Let 1 2 { ( X ^ , X r) } be a Cauchy sequence in the. diagonal of x V^, i.e. 1 2 1 2 X„ £ V,, X E V„ and X = X . Since V, x V. is complete there exists n l n z n n . 1 2 - 33 -a limit point (X, Y) of this sequence; but for a l l p e M we have . X(p) = lim e^X*, p) = lim X*(p) n-*» n-*» = lim X 2 C p ) n n-x» = ,lim-e2.(X2, p) = Y(p) . n-*=° Therefore X = Y and the diagonal is closed in x . Interchanging and V 2 above gives that id : —> i s continuous also and id is a homeomorphism. If Y is a complete vector f i e l d then denote by Exp tY, the one-parameter group generated.,by Y. Let <|>. : G x M —> M be the global action of a Lie transformation group G. Prop.(9.1) gives that exp_(X) = Exp(<j>+(X)) and this implies the following result. Proposition (9.5) Exp i s injective on a neighbourhood of 0 i n A +(L(G)) in the topology induced on <|)+(L(G)) by <j>+ . §10 Banach Lie Algebras of Complete Vector Fields We now consider when a Lie subalgebra L of V(M) is the image of the infinitesimal generator of a connected Lie transformation group. In view of propositions (9.1), (9.3), and (9.5) we only consider Lie subalgebras L of V(M) which satisfy the following conditions . (A) L consists of complete vector f i e l d s ; - 34 -(B) L has a Banach Lie algebra structure, (necessarily unique by Prop. (9.4)) such that ; (Bl) the evaluation map ev : (X, p) —-> X(p) is a vector bundle morphism from the t r i v i a l bundle L x M into T(M). (B2) there exists an open ball- B^ (O-) of. radius r at 0 such that Exp : L —> D(M) is infective on B r(0). •Proposition (10.1) If L is f i n i t e dimensional and satisfies (A) then condition (B) is true also. Proof : Since L is f i n i t e dimensiional i t has a natural Banach space structure. A proof of (Bl) is in Bourbaki [2, Remarque p.140] and a proof of' (B2) is in Loos '[6, p. 182]. The rest of this section w i l l be devoted to proving the following theorem. Theorem (10.2) If M is a Hausdorff manifold and L is a Lie subalgebra of V(M) satisfying conditions (A) and (B) then there exists a unique connected Lie transformation group G with natural global action (J) : G x M —> M such that <j>+ is a Banach Lie algebra isomorphism of L(G) onto L. Remark : Palais [7] f i r s t proved this theorem in the case where L and M are f i n i t e dimensional. Using a different method, Loos [6] extended this result to the case where L i s f i n i t e dimensional and M i s a (not - 35 -necessarily Hausforff) Banach mainfold. The proof given here i s similar to Palais' . In order to prove Theorem (10.2) we need the following theorem, which i s of interest in i t s e l f . Theorem (10.3). If II is a Hausdorff manifold and L is a Lie subalgebra of V(M) satisfying condition (A) and admitting a Banach Lie algebra structure such'that (Bl) js true (but not necessarily (-B2)) then there exists a simply connected Lie group G with L(G) = AL and a global action ty : G x M —> M such that ijj +(L(G)) = L, ty + is a continuous linear map into L, and for C e AL ; ty+(C) = C(l). Proof : By theorem (3.1)-there exists a Lie group with Lie algebra AL. Let G be the universal covering group (see Bourbaki [2, p.113]) of this group ; then L(G) = AL. We have an infinitesimal l e f t action, which we c a l l ty+, of G on M given by the following sequence of vector bundle morphisms, ev AL x M -—> L x M > T(M) (C, p) > (C(l), p) > C(l)(p) where ev i s the evaluation map which is a vector bundle morphism by condition (Bl). The map ty+ : C —•> C(l) i s continuous by theorem (3.1). The existence of the global action ty w i l l follow from theorem (8.3) by showing that ty+ is a uniform infinitesimal l e f t action. - 36 -By condition (BI), ev : L x M —> T(M) is a vector bundle morphism. Then the global version of the existence theorem for d i f f e r e n t i a l equations depending on a parameter (in this case the parameter space is L) implies that the map (t, X, p) —> Exp(tX)(p) from (R x L x M into M i s a morphism. The fact that this flow is defined on a l l of IR follows from condition (A) . Now let B (0) be an open b a l l about 0 in AL on which, exp-p G is a dif feomorphism. We w i l l show that i|> i s uniform on V = exp^(B (0)) G p P + -1 Define, for each p e M, the map 6^ : g —> (g, ExpOJi (exp ? (g)))(p)) G from V into G x M .

For X e L(G) -and p e M define aX ! t ~~~> ( e xPG^ t X)» Exp(t^ +(X)(p)) from IR into G x M . Now T(a P) d Ut s da X dt dt t=0 ex Pg(tX)expg(sX), ~ Exp (tip (X))(p) t=s X(expg(sX) , i|»+(X) (Exp(si|; +(X)) (p)) belongs to T(G x M, Y). Then prop.(1.4) implies that the image of a P i s in Z p since a P(0) = (e, p) and IR i s connected. In particular i f - 37 -g•= expx(X) for X e. B (0) then-^ P •a P(l) = (expg(X), Exp(./(X))(p)) = (g, Exp(4 ) +(exp~ 1(g))(p)) which shows 'that S P ( V ) CT ^p * Denote by V P the image of V under 5 P . The "projection" T T g : Y — > G obviously maps V P onerto-one onto V . In fact we now show that V P is the component containing (e, p) in TT^(V) fl E . We have b P (e, p) = 6 P(e) e V P . Suppose (g, q) i s any point in V P and l e t U be ah open set in E containing (g, q) on which TT~ i s a diffeomoephism P G (prop. (6.3)). Let W be'ah- open-set in' V ft ir~(U')' cO'nta'ihl'ri'g g" , then TT~^ : Tr~(U) —> U takes W onto an open set containing (g, q) and -1 G^ irft(U) (W) C V P since TT-1 = 6 P on W . This proves that V P i s open. In order to show that V p is the component containing (e, p) in n>,^ (V) H E i t remains to prove that V P is closed in ir=^(V) . Let Or P \J (h, m) be any point in irx^(V) D E such that (h, m) i V P . Now since G p IT- i s one-to-one on V P there exists a unique point in V P with f i r s t component h, say (h, n). E^ is Hausdorff since i t i s an open submani-fold of Y and therefore we can find disjoint open neighbourhoods A and B of (h, m) and (h, n) respectively which TT~ maps diffeomorphically onto the same neighbourhood of h ; this i s possible since Tr= is a local diffeomorphism. By restricting A and. B further we can assume that • A C. V P and i t then follows that B fl V P = 0 since TTX is one-to-one on - 38 -V1' . This completes the proof that if/ i s uniform and proves the theorem. Proof of Theorem (10.2) We keep the notations used above. L i s assumed to be a subalgebra of V(M) s a t i s f y i n g conditions (A) and -(B); Consider the i d e a l ker if) = { C e L(G) : C ( l ) =0} . i n L(G) which i s the kernel of the map ip + : L(G) — > V(M); i t i s closed i n L(G) since ker if; + = C\ (if;+) x ( 0 ) where, ifj~|~ i s the continuous l i n e a r map peM p P P X — > ij; +(X)(p) from L(G) i n t o T p(M) ( 0 p denotes the zero vector i n Tp(M) ). Therefore ker ifj + i s a Banach L i e subalgebra of L(G) . Let L' = j C £ L(G) = AL : C(t) = tX for some -X e L then L' i s a closed vector subspace i n L(G) which complements ker if; , i . e . ker if)+ s p l i t s i n L(G) and we i d e n t i f y L ( 5 ) with ker ifj + x L 1 . For g £ G, denote by if; the d i f feomorphism p —> iKg, P) of M in t o M. Let 6 : G — > D(M) be the group homomorphism g —> ifj . Let H = ker 6 , then we have a group isomorphism 6 : G/H — > 6(G). We w i l l show that H i s a L i e subgroup of G. Condition (B2) gives the existence of a open neighbourhood N of 0 i n L on which Exp i s i n f e c t i v e . Let A x B C ker if;+ x L' = L(G) be an open neighbourhood of 0 on which exp~ i s a d i f feomorphism and such that if)+(A x B) C N. Let h E H f\ exp- ( A x B) , G then h = expg (C) for some unique C E A x B. Now f o r a l l p E M we have - 39 -P = K » , P) = ^(exp~ CC), p) = Exp OJi+(C))(p) Cby prop. (8,4)) = Exp (C(l))(p) . Since C(l) e N and Exp (C(l)) = id we have C(l) = 0, i.e. C e A x {0} . Also i f C e A x {0} then iJj(exp(C), p) = p for a l l p and exp--(C) E H. The fact that H i s a Lie subgroup then follows from prop. (3.3) since expg (A x {0}) = H H expg (A x B). We also have L(H) = ker if)+ . It follows from prop. (3.6) that there exists a connected Lie group structure on G/H such that the projectiion p : G —> G/H i s a submersion and L(G/H) = L(G)/L(H) = L . Using the group isomorphism 6 : G/H —> 6(G) we have a Lie group structure induced on 6(G) such that 6 is a submersion, ker L(6) = ker \p+, L(6(G)) = L, and 6 is a diffeomorphism. With this Lie group structure 6(G) w i l l be denoted by G. Define <J> : G x M —> M to be the natural action <j>(g, p) = g(p). Let a be the submersion (k, p) —> (6(k), p) of G x M into G x M. Then if) = <j>oa and <j> i s a morphism since if) is a morphism and a i s a submersion. We now show that cf>+ i s a Banach Lie algebra isomorphism. Let C e L(G) = AL and p e M, then C(l) (P) = if)+(C) (p) = T ( e j p ) C ) ( C ( e ) , 0 p) - 40 -T ( e > p ) ( * o a ) ( C ( e ) , 0 p) T ( i d > P ) ^ T e 5 C C ( e ) ) ' V <J>+(L(S)(C))(p) , i.e. ty+ = <j>+°L(5). • + + We see that ty maps L(G) onto L- since ty- maps L(G) onto L + + (theorem (10.3)). Since L(6)(kar ip< ) = 0 we have that .-ty is infective. The fact that ty+ i s continuous' follows easily from the following; (1) ty+ i s continuous + (2) L(5) is continuous, surjective and ker L(6) = ker ty s p l i t s in L(G) (since 5 i s a submersion). It remains to prove the uniqueness of G. Let F be another Lie transformation group with the same properties as G and let f3 : F x M —> M be the map (f, p) —> f(p). Now exp„ (tX) = Exp (tB +(X)) for X e L(F) by prop. (9.1) and therefore since F i s connected i t i s generated by Exp (L). Similarly G i s generated by Exp (L) which shows that the underlying groups of G and F are the same in D(M). The following commutative diagram ( e W L(G) — > L(F) exp G e x P p - 41 -shows that Id from G into F is a morphism and completes the proof of the theorem. §11 A Banach Lie algebra of complete vector fields which does not generate a connected Lie transformation group If we have a subalgebra L of V'(M). which satisfies condition (A) and admits a Banach Lie algebra structure such that (Bl) i s true but not (B2) then prop.(9.4) implies that this L won't admit any Banach space structure such that (B2) i s satisfied-. Hence by prop. (9.5), L isn't the-image of the infinitesimal generator of any connected Lie transformation group. We now give an example of such an L which, although i t doesn't generate a connected Lie transformation group, i s s t i l l enlargeable. Let M = disjoint KJ S where is the unit c i r c l e S . Define the vector J • , n n=l f i e l d X by n xn(P) -0 i f p e s\ and i ^ n P 3 , t, „l 2irit where a is the curve on S ; t —> e n Let L be the normed vector space consisting of a l l sums co co | c | • T c X , c e IR, such that Y — — <<*>. If C = J c X E L , define tl-, n n n L. n L n n * n-1 n=l - 42 -0 3 c i i i i r n the norm of C to be | | C | ] = I . We w i l l show that L i s a n=l Banach Lie algebra satisfying (A) and (Bl) but not (B2). L consists of complete vector fields since we have a disjoint union of compact manifolds. It is a vector space for lc + b I MI c X + I b X || = I n n ' 1u n n L n n' 1 L n |c | |b | < oo n u n i f 7 c X^ and I b X belong to L. Similarly L i s closed under u n n u n n ° J scalar multiplication. L i s closed under the bracket operation since ll c X , J b X- ] = V c.b.[X., X.] = 0 u n n L n n .L. I i i ' i We now give the usual proof that a space of sequences i s complete. Let {An} be a Cauchy sequence of elements in L, i.e. given e > 0 there exists N such that i f i , j > N we have M A 1 - A^ll =1 < e k k where A n = £ ^ y^k ' ^n P a r t i c u l a r this implies that for fixed k, k is a Cauchy sequence. Let A^ = lim A^ and A = ^ A^X^ . We w i l l show that A e L and lim A n = A . From above we have n-x» - 43 , -for a l l s > 1 and i , j > N , then lira 2, = 2, Z—— < °°- f° r a*-*- s > 1. k=l k 1=1 k Since this i s true for a l l s we have k=i k But this implies that A - A"' e L which means A = (A - A~*) + A^ e L . We also have for j > N , | |A - A~* | | < E ; which shows that lim A~* .= A We have now shown that L i s a Banach Lie algebra and i t i s t r i v i a l l y enlargeable since i t is abelian. It remains to show that the evaluation map ev : L x M —> T(M) is a vector bundle morphism. Local coordinates on each of the 's are n given by the local inverse of the map t —> e^ 1*" . We denote this map by l ° 8 n • This induces local coordinates on T(M) and we denote this map T by i ° 8 n • If TT • T(M) —> M i s the usual projection and i f Z = £ z n x n then log^(Z(p)) = (log n (Tr(Z(p)), z n) = (log n(p), z n) .

Let Y = £ and W be an.open neighbourhood of Y(p) = ev(Y, p) in T CM). Now log^(Y(p)) = (log n(p), y ) - 44 -and by the definition of the topology of T(M) there exists an open set U containing log (p) and an interval B (y ) about y such that ° . n p n n ( l o g 1 ) " 1 ^ x B (y )) C W .

Description | Suppose G is a Lie group and M is a manifold (G and M are not necessarily finite dimensional). Let D(M) denote the group of diffeomorphisms on M and V(M) denote the Lie algebra of vector fields on M . If X is a. complete-vector field then Exp tX will denote the one-parameter group of X . A local action ⌽ of G on M gives rise to a Lie algebra homomorphism ⌽⁺ from L(G) into V(M) . In particular if G is a subgroup of D(M) and ⌽ : G x M →M is the natural global action (g,p) → g(p) then G is called a Lie transformation group of M. If M is a Hausdorff manifold and G is a Lie transformation group of M we show that ⌽⁺ is an isomorphism of L(G) onto ⌽⁺ (L(G)) and L = ⌽⁺(L(G)) satisfies the following conditions : (A) L consists of complete vector fields. (B) L has a Banach Lie algebra structure satisfying the following two conditions: (B1) the evaluation map ev : (X,p) → X(p) is a vector bundle morphism from the trivial bundle L x M into T(M), (B2) there exists an open ball B[sub r](0) of radius r at 0 such that Exp : L → D(M) is infective on B[sub r](0). Conversely, if L is a subalgebra of V(M) (M Hausdorff) satisfying conditions (A) and (B) we show there exists a unique connected Lie transformation group with natural action ⌽ : G x M → M such that ⌽⁺ is a Banach Lie algebra isomorphism of L(G) onto L . |
