$C^1$–actions of Baumslag–Solitar groups on $S^1$

Nancy Guelman and Isabelle Liousse

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 11 (2011) 1701–1707
Abstract

Let BS(1,n) = a,baba1 = bn be the solvable Baumslag–Solitar group, where n 2. It is known that BS(1,n) is isomorphic to the group generated by the two affine maps of the line: f0(x) = x + 1 and h0(x) = nx. The action on S1 = generated by these two affine maps f0 and h0 is called the standard affine one. We prove that any faithful representation of BS(1,n) into Diff1(S1) is semiconjugated (up to a finite index subgroup) to the standard affine action.
