An epimorphic subgroup arising from Roberts' counterexample

Indagationes Mathematicae. 2012. Vol. 23. No. 1-2. P. 10-18.

In 1994, based on Roberts’ counterexample to Hilbert’s fourteenth problem, A’Campo-Neuen constructed an example of a linear action of a 12-dimensional commutative unipotent group H_0 on a 19-dimensional vector space V such that the algebra of invariants k[V]^{H_0} is not finitely generated. We consider a certain extension H of H_0 by a one-dimensional torus and prove that H is epimorphic in SL(V). In particular, the homogeneous space SL(V)/H provides a new example of a homogeneous space with epimorphic stabilizer that admits no projective embeddings with small boundary.
