Postdoc position: Wolfgang Moens.

Predoc position: Thomas Benes, Felix Behringer.

In this research project we study geometric structures on manifolds which are locally modelled on homogeneous spaces. Many familiar geometric structures are of this type. An important (unsolved) question is to find a criterion for the existence of such structures on a given manifold or Lie group.

Related topics are crystallographic actions, simply transitive affine actions of Lie groups and important generalizations of these. The methods here are mainly of algebraic nature, using cohomology and representation theory, deformation and degeneration theory, and the study of certain Lie-admissible algebra structures, such as pre-Lie algebra structures.

These algebraic structures have also applications in quantum mechanics. -

Crystallographic groups have their origin in the study of symmetry groups of crystals in three-dimensional Euclidean space. The theorems of Bieberbach enable us to understand Euclidean crystallographic structures. Since then several other types of crystallographic structures have been considered, e.g., almost-crystallographic and affine crystallographic structures.

The aim of this project is to study so called nil-affine crystallographic structures. These are a natural generalization of affine crystallographic structures, being motivated by open problems on affine structures on manifolds. Main progress in the study of affine crystallographic groups has been obtained by using the close relationship to simply transitive affine actions on Lie groups. These actions are in a one-to-one correspondence to certain Lie algebraic structures, which can be treated successfully by means of algebra.

Our first aim is, to establish a similar correspondence in the nil-affine case. The algebraic structures arising here are so called post-Lie algebra structures on pairs of Lie algebras. We want to study these algebraic structures, in order to obtain structure results or even a classification. Finally also geometric problems on the associated nil-affine manifolds and their fundamental groups will be considered.

Our investigations naturally have certain group-theoretical and number-theoretical aspects. The algebraic structures arising here are also of interest in other areas, such as operad theory and theoretical physics, in connection with renormalizable quantum field theories. -

**Automorphisms of Nilpotent Groups and Geometric Structures.**

FWO Project number: G0F9317N, Flemish project leader: Karel Dekimpe

The aim of this project is to study automorphism groups of (virtually) nilpotent groups arising in geometry and topology, e.g., in the study of nilmanifolds and infra--nilmanifolds, spectral geometry of Riemannian manifolds, and Nielsen fixed-point theory. So far, automorphism groups in this context have been only studied with ad hoc methods, depending on the specific geometrical or topological problem, which was translated accordingly into certain problem on the automorphism group.

The innovative part of our project lies in the belief that there is a lack of a more general approach, which could be used in several specific situations. Therefore we propose here to start with an in-depth investigation of the automorphism group itself and study several structural aspects of the automorphism group and develop enough computational tools which can then succesfully be applied in a broad range of topological and geometric contexts both by ourselves as by other researchers.

The methods we will use when dealing with nilpotent groups include induction on the nilpotency class, different central series, polynomial functors, and computational algorithms concerning presentations and representations of these groups. Another method is based on a specific eigenvalue study of automorphisms, which can be applied to fixed point theory, expanding maps, Anosov diffeomorphisms, and to the study of the algebraic structure of the the virtually nilpotent group itself, e.g., the property of being co-Hopfian. -

**Affine Geometry on Lie Groups and Lie-algebraic Structures.**

Postdoc position: Pilar Páez-Guillán

Predoc position: Mina Monadjem

The goal of this project is to study affine and nil-affine geometry on Lie groups and its related algebraic structures by means of Lie-algebraic methods. This includes, among other things, nil-affine actions on Lie groups and crystallographic actions. The associated algebraic structures are Lie algebras, pre-Lie algebras, post-Lie algebras, prehomogeneous modules, classical and modified Yang-Baxter equations and Rota-Baxter operators.

We have a list of important research questions of different levels in the project description, ranging from the very general and difficult existence questions for geometric structures on Lie groups to the more specific questions on pre-Lie and post-Lie algebras, Yang-Baxter equations, Rota-Baxter operators, decompositions of Lie algebras, cohomology of Lie algebras, faithful modules, almost inner derivations and etale affine representations of reductive algebraic groups. For example, we want to study post-Lie algebra structures on pairs of Lie algebras with complete Lie algebras via the bijective correspondence to Rota-Baxter operators. We ask for generalizations of commutative post-Lie algebra structures. We study rigidity questions for pairs of Lie algebras admitting a post-Lie algebra structure, and want to find out the structure of Lie algebras which are the vector space sum of two semisimple subalgebras. Such algebras must be perfect, but need not be semisimple.
