NPCW05 - Group actions and cohomology in non-positive curvature Affine manifolds, i.e. manifolds which admit charts given by affine transformations, remain mysterious by the very few explicit examples and their famous open conjectures: the Auslander Conjecture, the Chern Conjecture and the Markus Conjecture. After reviewing the current state of knowledge on these conjectures, I will present an intermediate conjecture, somehow between the Auslander Conjecture and the Chern Conjecture, involving the simplicial volume, a topological invariant of manifolds introduced by Gromov in the beginning of the 80’s. In a joint work with Chris Connell and Jean-François Lafont, we prove the latter intermediate conjecture under some hypothesis, thus providing further evidence for the veracity of the Auslander and Chern Conjectures.
