Quick question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Suppose I have a (transitive) R^n action on a manifold M. If the isotropy group of R^n is discrete, does that mean that it is automatically isomorphic to Z/kZ, with 0<=k<=n?

Basically, my discrete subgroup is a lattice then, right?

Thanks!
