Problem 63

Primary tabs

$C^r$ diffeos that are not $C^{r+1}$ qualitatively. Find a $C^1$ diffeo $f : V \to V$ and a $C^1$ embedding $g:V \to M$ and $\tilde f$ extending $f$ to $M$ such that $\tilde f$ is $C^2$ on $M$, but $\tilde f |V$ is qualitatively not $C^2$ (i.e. the qualitative behavior of $\tilde f|V $ is due to the irregularity of $V$ but not of $\tilde f$)




A bit of interpretation here, I am not sure I understand well the question.

There are Cr diffeomorphisms that are not Cr conjugated to a Cr+1 diffeomorphism

J. Harrison, Unsmoothable diffeomorphisms. Ann. of Math. 102 (1975), 85–94.

There exists a Cdiffeomorphism of the annulus which preserves a Lipschitz circle supporting a Denjoy counterexample.
