The project involves classical problems in submanifold geometry of local and global character, namely, isometric, affine, minimal, umbilical, conformal and isoparametric immersions in several ambient spaces of finite and infinite dimension, as well as the existence problem for closed geodesics in Riemannian and pseudo-Riemannian manifolds. The methods of investigation involve Lie group actions and Morse theory. (AU)
