Global rigidity of some abelian-by-cyclic group actions on $\mathbb{T}^2$

Geometry & Topology 25 (2021) 3133–3178
Abstract

For groups of diffeomorphisms of ${\mathbb{𝕋}}^{2}$ containing an Anosov diffeomorphism, we give a complete classification for polycyclic abelian-by-cyclic group actions on ${\mathbb{𝕋}}^{2}$ up to both topological conjugacy and smooth conjugacy under mild assumptions. Along the way, we also prove a Tits alternative-type theorem for some groups of diffeomorphisms of ${\mathbb{𝕋}}^{2}$.
