O-minimal flows on nilmanifolds

Submission date: 14 September 2018


Let G be a connected, simply connected nilpotent Lie group, identified with a real algebraic subgroup of UT(n,R), and let Γ be a lattice in G, with π : G → G/Γ the quotient map. For a semi-algebraic X ⊆ G, and more generally a definable set in an o-minimal structure on the real field, we consider the topological closure of π(X) in the compact nilmanifold G/Γ.
Our theorem describes cl(π(X)) in terms of finitely many families of cosets of real algebraic subgroups of G. The underlying families are extracted from X, independently of Γ.
