## Flexible affine cones and flexible coverings

Mathematische Zeitschrift. 2018. Vol. 290. No. 3-4. P. 1457-1478.

We provide a new criterion for flexibility of affine cones over varieties covered by flexible affine varieties. We apply this criterion to prove flexibility of affine cones over secant varieties of Segre–Veronese embeddings and over certain Fano threefolds. We further prove flexibility of total coordinate spaces of Cox rings of del Pezzo surfaces.

We classify compact complex surfaces whose groups of bimeromorphic selfmaps have bounded finite subgroups. We also prove that the stabilizer of a point in the automorphism group of a compact complex surface of zero Kodaira dimension, as well as the stabilizer of a point in the automorphism group of an arbitrary compact Kaehler manifold of ...

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 ...

We classify the types of root systems $R$ in the rings of integers of number fields $K$ such that the Weyl group $W(R)$ lies in the group $\mathcal L(K)$ generated by ${\rm Aut} (K)$ and multipli\-ca\-tions by the elements of $K^*$. We also classify the Weyl groups of roots systems of rank $n$ which are ...

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. ...

Cox rings are significant global invariants of algebraic varieties, naturally generalizing homogeneous coordinate rings of projective spaces. This book provides a largely self-contained introduction to Cox rings, with a particular focus on concrete aspects of the theory. Besides the rigorous presentation of the basic concepts, other central topics include the case of finitely generated Cox ...

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 ...

An affine algebraic variety X of dimension ≥ 2 is called flexible if the subgroup SAut(X) ⊂ Aut(X) generated by the one-parameter unipotent subgroups acts m-transitively on reg (X) for any m ≥ 1. In a preceding paper ([4]) we proved that any nondegenerate toric affine variety X is flexible. Here we show that if such a toric variety X is ...

We address the following question: When an affine cone over a smooth Fano threefold admits an effective action of the additive group? In this paper we deal with Fano threefolds of index 1 and Picard number 1. Our approach is based on a geometric criterion from our previous paper, which relates the existence of an ...

We show that an effective action of the one-dimensional torus G_m on a normal affine algebraic variety X can be extended to an effective action of a semi-direct product G_m⋌G_a with the same general orbit closures if and only if there is a divisor D on X that consists of G_m-fixed points. This result is applied to the study of orbits of the automorphism group Aut(X) on X. ...

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 ...

In a previous paper we established that for any del Pezzo surface Y of degree at least 4, the affine cone X over Y embedded via a pluri-anticanonical linear system admits an effective Ga-action. In particular, the group Aut(X) is infinite dimensional. In contrast, we show in this note that for a del Pezzo surface ...

Let X be an algebraic variety such that the group Aut(X) acts on X transitively. We define the transitivity degree of X as the maximum number m such that the action of Aut(X) on X is m-transitive. If the action of Aut(X) is m-transitive for all m, the transitivity degree is infinite. We compute the transitivity degree for all quasi-affine toric varieties and for many homogeneous spaces of algebraic groups. We also discuss a conjecture and ...
