On real analytic orbifolds and Riemannian metrics

Marja Kankaanrinta

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 13 (2013) 2369–2381
Abstract

We begin by showing that every real analytic orbifold has a real analytic Riemannian metric. It follows that every reduced real analytic orbifold can be expressed as a quotient of a real analytic manifold by a real analytic almost free action of a compact Lie group. We then extend a well-known result of Nomizu and Ozeki concerning Riemannian metrics on manifolds to the orbifold setting: Let X be a smooth (real analytic) orbifold and let α be a smooth (real analytic) Riemannian metric on X. Then X has a complete smooth (real analytic) Riemannian metric conformal to α.
