## Jordan groups and automorphism groups of algebraic varieties

Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics. 2014. Vol. 79. P. 185-213.

This is an expanded version of my talk at the workshop

``Groups of Automorphisms in Birational and Affine Geometry'',

October 29–November 3, 2012, Levico Terme, Italy.

The first section is focused on Jordan groups in abstract setting,

the second on that in the settings of automorphisms groups and

groups of birational self-maps of algebraic varieties.

The appendix is an expanded version of my notes on open

problems posted on the site of this workshop.

It contains formulations of some open problems and

the relevant comments.

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 ...

We classify three-dimensional singular cubic hypersurfaces with an action of a finite group G, which are not G-rational and have no birational structure of G-Mori fiber space with the base of positive dimension. Also we prove the 𝔄5A5-birational superrigidity of the Segre cubic. ...

We introduce a category of rigid geometries on singular spaces which
are leaf spaces of foliations and are considered as leaf manifolds. We
single out a special category F_0 of leaf manifolds containing the orbifold
category as a full subcategory. Objects of F_0 may have non-Hausdorff
topology unlike the orbifolds. The topology of some objects of F_0 does
not satisfy ...

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 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. ...

Let $V_{n,d}$ be the variety of equations for hypersurfaces of degree $d$ in $\mathbb{P}^n(\mathbb{C})$ with singularities not worse than simple nodes. We prove that the orbit map $G'=SL_{n+1}(\mathbb{C}) \to V_{n,d}$, $g\mapsto g\cdot s_0$, $s_0\in V_{n,d}$ is surjective on the rational cohomology if $n>1$, $d\geq 3$, and $(n,d)\neq (2,3)$. As a result, the Leray-Serre spectral sequence ...

We prove that a finite group acting by birational automorphisms of a non-trivial Severi-Brauer surface over a field of characteristic zero contains a normal abelian subgroup of index at most 3. Also, we find an explicit bound for orders of such finite groups in the case when the base field contains all roots of 1. ...

We prove that any G-del Pezzo threefold of degree 4, except for a one-parameter family and four distinguished cases, can be equivariantly reconstructed to the projective space ℙ3, a quadric Q ⊂ ℙ4 , a G-conic bundle or a del Pezzo fibration. We also show that one of these four distinguished varieties is birationally rigid ...

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 ...

The category of foliations is considered. In this category
morphisms are differentiable mappings transforming leaves of one
foliation into leaves of the other foliation.
We proved that the automorphism group of the foliations
admitting a transverse linear connection is an infinite-dimensional
Lie group modeled on $LF$-spaces. This result extends the corresponding
result of Macias-Virgos and Sanmartin for Riemannian foliations.
In particular, our ...
