Abstract

In answer to a question posed in \cite{G}, we give sufficient conditions on a Lie nilmanifold so that any ergodic rotation of the nilmanifold is metrically conjugate to its inverse. The condition is that the Lie algebra be what we call quasi-graded, and is weaker than the property of being graded. Furthermore, the conjugating map can be chosen to be an involution. It is shown that for a special class of groups, the condition of quasi-graded is also necessary. In certain examples there is a continuum of conjugacies.
