Surgery for partially hyperbolic dynamical systems, I: Blow-ups of invariant submanifolds

Andrey Gogolev

Geometry & Topology 22 (2018) 2219–2252

We suggest a method to construct new examples of partially hyperbolic diffeomorphisms. We begin with a partially hyperbolic diffeomorphism f : M M which leaves invariant a submanifold N M. We assume that N is an Anosov submanifold for f, that is, the restriction f|N is an Anosov diffeomorphism and the center distribution is transverse to TN TM. By replacing each point in N with the projective space (real or complex) of lines normal to N, we obtain the blow-up M̂. Replacing M with M̂ amounts to a surgery on the neighborhood of N which alters the topology of the manifold. The diffeomorphism f induces a canonical diffeomorphism f̂: M̂ M̂. We prove that under certain assumptions on the local dynamics of f at N the diffeomorphism f̂ is also partially hyperbolic. We also present some modifications, such as the connected sum construction, which allows to “paste together” two partially hyperbolic diffeomorphisms to obtain a new one. Finally, we present several examples to which our results apply.
