## Rationality of the quotient of ℙ2 by finite group of automorphisms over arbitrary field of characteristic zero

Central European Journal of Mathematics. 2014. Vol. 12. No. 2. P. 229-239.

Let $\bbk$ be a field of characteristic zero and $G$ be a finite group of automorphisms of projective plane over $\bbk$. Castelnuovo's criterion implies that the quotient of projective plane by $G$ is rational if the field $\bbk$ is algebraically closed. In this paper we prove that $\mathbb{P}^2_{\bbk} / G$ is rational for an arbitrary field $\bbk$ of characteristic zero.

We show that if we are given a smooth non-isotrivial family of curves of genus 1 over C with a smooth base B for which the general fiber of the mapping J : B → A 1 (assigning j-invariant of the fiber to a point) is connected, then the monodromy group of the family (acting ...

This paper suggests a new approach to questions of rationality of threefolds based on category theory. Following M. Ballard, D. Favero, L. Katzarkov (ArXiv:1012.0864) and D. Favero, L. Katzarkov (Noether--Lefschetz Spectra and Algebraic cycles, in preparation) we enhance constructions from A. Kuznetsov (arXiv:0904.4330) by introducing Noether--Lefschetz spectra --- an interplay between Orlov spectra (C. Oliva, ...

Let k be a field of characteristic zero, let G be a connected reductive algebraic group
over k and let g be its Lie algebra. Let k(G), respectively, k(g), be the field of k rational functions on G, respectively, g. The conjugation action of G on itself induces
the adjoint action of G on g. We investigate the ...

On monodromy groups of del Pezzo surfaces / Cornell University. Series arXiv "math". 2017.

We show that the monodromy group acting on $H^1(\cdot,\mathbb Z)$ of a smooth
hyperplane section of a del Pezzo surface over $\mathbb C$ is the entire
group $\mathrm{SL}_2(\mathbb Z)$. For smooth surfaces with $b_1=0$ and hyperplane section
of genus $g>2$, there exist examples in which a similar assertion is
false. Actually, if hyperplane sections of ...

We propose a new method to study birational maps between Fano varieties based on multiplier ideal sheaves. Using this method, we prove equivariant birational rigidity of four Fano threefolds acted on by the group A6. As an application, we obtain that the Cremona group of rank 3 has at least five non-conjugate subgroups isomorphic to ...

We study elements $\tau$ of order two in the birational automorphism groups of rationally connected three-dimensional algebraic varieties such that there exists a non-uniruled divisorial component of the $\tau$-fixed point locus. Using the equivariant minimal model program, we give a rough classification of such elements. ...

We classify up to conjugacy the subgroups of certain types in the full, affine, and special affine Cremona groups.
We prove that the normalizers of these subgroups are algebraic. As an application, we obtain new results in the linearization problem by generalizing Bia{\l}ynicki-Birula's results of 1966--67 to disconnected groups.
We prove fusion theorems for n-dimensional tori in ...

Let $\ka$ be any field of characteristic zero, $X$ be a del Pezzo surface and $G$ be a finite subgroup in $\Aut(X)$. In this paper we study when the quotient surface $X / G$ can be non-rational over $\ka$. Obviously, if there are no smooth $\ka$-points on $X / G$ then it is not $\ka$-rational. ...

The Fano variety of lines and rationality problem for a cubic hypersurface / Cornell University. Series math "arxiv.org". 2014. No. 1405.5154.

We find a relation between a cubic hypersurface Y and its Fano variety of lines F(Y) in the Grothendieck ring of varieties. We prove that if the class of an affine line is not a zero-divisor in the Grothendieck ring of varieties, then Fano variety of lines on a smooth rational cubic fourfold is birational ...

In particular, the group Aut(X) is infinite dimensional. In contrast, we show in this note that for a del Pezzo surface ...

Assuming a particular case of the Borisov–Alexeev–Borisov conjecture, we prove that finite subgroups of the automorphism group of a finitely generated field over Q have bounded orders. Further, we investigate which algebraic varieties have groups of birational selfmaps satisfying the Jordan property. Unless explicitly stated otherwise, all varieties are assumed to be algebraic, geometrically irreducible ...
