Expansive flows of surfaces

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • We prove that a flow without singular points of index zero on a compact surface is expansive if and only if the singularities are of saddle type and the union of their separatrices is dense. Moreover we show that such flows are obtained by surgery on the suspension of minimal interval exchange maps.
