Nonsmoothable, locally indicable group actions on the interval

##### Abstract

By the Thurston Stability Theorem, a group of ${C}^{1}$ orientation-preserving diffeomorphisms of the closed unit interval is locally indicable. We show that the local order structure of orbits gives a stronger criterion for nonsmoothability that can be used to produce new examples of locally indicable groups of homeomorphisms of the interval that are not conjugate to groups of ${C}^{1}$ diffeomorphisms.
