INHOMOGENEOUS ISOPARAMETRIC HYPERSURFACES IN SYMMETRIC SPACES OF NONCOMPACT TYPE - MIGUEL DOMÍNGUEZ-VÁZQUEZ (UNIVERSITY OF SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA)
A hypersurface of a Riemannian manifold is called isoparametric if its nearby parallel hypersurfaces have constant mean curvature. Homogeneous hypersurfaces, that is, codimension one orbits of isometric actions, constitute a fundamental class of examples. The problem of determining which spaces with a large isometry group admit inhomogeneous isoparametric
hypersurfaces has a long history that traces back to Élie Cartan.
In this talk, I will report on a joint work with Víctor Sanmartín-López where we construct the first examples of inhomogeneous isoparametric hypersurfaces in every symmetric space of noncompact type and rank at least three.
