## Abstract

The theorems of M. Ratner, describing the finite ergodic invariant measures and the orbit closures for unipotent flows on homogeneous spaces of Lie groups, are extended for actions of subgroups generated by unipotent elements. More precisely: Let G be a Lie group (not necessarily connected) and Gamma a closed subgroup of G. Let W be a subgroup of G such that Ad(W) is contained in the Zariski closure (in the group of automorphisms of the Lie algebra of G) of the subgroup generated by the unipotent elements of Ad(W). Then any finite ergodic invariant measure for the action of W on G/Gamma is a homogeneous measure (i.e., it is supported on a closed orbit of a subgroup preserving the measure). Moreover, if G/Gamma has finite volume (i.e., has a finite G-invariant measure), then the closure of any orbit of W on G/Gamma is a homogeneous set (i.e., a finite volume closed orbit of a subgroup containing W). Both the above results hold if W is replaced by any subgroup Lambda of W such that W/Lambda has finite volume.
