Burghelea and S. Haller Proposition 1. 1. Given a vector field X which satisfies (H) and (L) arbitrary close in the C r topology for any r ≥ 0 there exists a vector field Y which agrees with X on a neighborhood of the rest points and satisfies (H), (L), (MS) and (NCT). 2.

65 1. Introduction For a finitely presented group Γ denote by Rep(Γ; V ) the algebraic set of all complex representations of Γ on the complex vector space V . For a closed base pointed manifold (M, x0 ) with Γ = π1 (M, x0 ) denote by RepM (Γ; V ) the algebraic closure of RepM 0 (Γ; V ), the Zariski open set of representations ρ ∈ Rep(Γ; V ) so that H ∗ (M ; ρ) = 0. The manifold M is called V -acyclic iff RepM (Γ; V ), or equivalently e characterRepM 0 (Γ; V ), is non-empty.

It is easy to see that χΛ (F ) = vol(G) · χΓ (X) , where χΓ (X) is the Γ-Euler characteristic of the covering manifold X of X defined by Atiyah [6]. By Atiyah’s Γ-index theorem [6], we have χΓ (X) = χ(X), where χ(X) is the Euler characteristic of X. Lefschetz Distribution of Lie Foliations 33 There is a C ∞ global representation φ : M × G → M of the structural transverse action Φ, defined by φ([x, a], g) = [x, ag] . This φ is a free action. 1) on the whole of G. In particular, if χ(X) = 0, then dim H(F ) = ∞ for any homomorphism h : Γ → G.
