Locally discrete expanding groups of analytic diffeomorphisms of the circle. (English) Zbl 1455.37029

Summary: We show that a finitely subgroup of \(\operatorname{Diff}^\omega(\mathbf{S}^1)\) that is expanding and locally discrete in the analytic category is analytically conjugated to a uniform lattice in \(\widetilde{\mathrm{PGL}}_2^k(\mathbf{R})\) acting on the \(k\)th covering of \(\mathbf{R}P^1\) for a certain integer \(k>0\).
