## “Del Pezzo fibrations”, Appendix to “Five embeddings of one simple group” by I. Cheltsov and C. Shramov

Transactions of the American Mathematical Society. 2014. Vol. 366. No. 3. P. 1289-1331.

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 A6.

We study the action of the Klein simple group PSL2(F7 ) consisting of 168 elements on two rational threefolds: the three-dimensional projective space and a smooth Fano threefold X of anticanonical degree 22 and index 1. We show that the Cremona group of rank three has at least three non-conjugate subgroups isomorphic to PSL2(F7 ). As a ...

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 ...

The forms of the Segre cubic over non-algebraically closed fields, their automorphisms groups, and equivariant birational rigidity are studied. In particular, it is shown that all forms of the Segre cubic over any field have a point and are cubic hypersurfaces. ...

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.

Cremona Groups and the Icosahedron focuses on the Cremona groups of ranks 2 and 3 and describes the beautiful appearances of the icosahedral group A5 in them. The book surveys known facts about surfaces with an action of A5, explores A5-equivariant geometry of the quintic del Pezzo threefold V5, and gives a proof of its A5-birational rigidity.

Assuming the Borisov-Alexeev-Borisov conjecture, we prove that there is a constant $J=J(n)$ such that for any rationally connected variety $X$ of dimension $n$ and any finite subgroup $G\subset{\rm Bir}(X)$ there exists a normal abelian subgroup $A\subset G$ of index at most $J$. In particular, we obtain that the Cremona group ${\rm Cr}_3={\rm Bir}({\Bbb P}^3)$ enjoys ...
