Conformal Actions on Homogeneous Lorentzian Manifolds

Uri Bader
Faculty of Mathematics, The Technion, Haifa 32000, Israel

A conformal group action on a pseudo-Riemannian manifold is essential if the action is not an isometric action with respect to a conformally equivalent metric. We classify all essential actions of simple Lie groups on Riemannian, Lorentzian and sub-Lorentzian manifolds.

Keywords: Lorentzian manifolds, Conformal transformations.
