Cohomogeneity-two torus actions on non-negatively curved manifolds of low dimension. [Preprint]

Galaz-Garcia, Fernando; Kerin, Martin

Abstract: Let Mn, n∈{4,5,6}, be a compact, simply connected n-manifold which admits some Riemannian metric with non-negative curvature and an isometry group of maximal possible rank. Then any smooth, effective action on Mn by a torus Tn−2 is equivariantly diffeomorphic to an isometric action on a normal biquotient. Furthermore, it follows that any effective, isometric circle action on a compact, simply connected, non-negatively curved four-dimensional manifold is equivariantly diffeomorphic to an effective, isometric action on a normal biquotient.
