Let G be a connected noncompact simple Lie group acting isometrically on a connected compact pseudoRiemannian manifold M . Denote with   and   the dimension of the maximal null subspaces tangent to G and M , respectively. Then we always have  . Our main result states that, if  , then the G -action is, up to a finite covering, an algebraic action. We use this to obtain a complete characterization of a large family of G -actions, thus providing a partial positive answer to the conjecture proposed in Zimmerʼs program for pseudoRiemannian manifolds.

Soit G un groupe de Lie simple non compact connexe agissant isométriquement sur une variété pseudoRiemannienne compacte connexe M . Dénotez avec   et   la dimension des sous-espaces nuls maximales tangents á G et M , respectivement. Alors nous avons toujours  . Notre résultat principal déclare que, si  , alors le action de G est, jusquʼà une revêtement finie, une action algébrique. Nous employons ceci pour obtenir une caractérisation complète dʼune famille nombreuse de actions de G , de ce fait fournissant une réponse positive partielle à la conjecture proposé dans le programme de Zimmer pour le variété pseudoRiemannienne.
