Linear bounds for levels of stable rationality
Let G be one of the groups SL n(ℂ), Sp 2n(ℂ), SO m(ℂ), O m(ℂ), or G 2. For a generically free G-representation V, we say that N is a level of stable rationality for V/G if V/G × ℙ N is rational. In this paper we improve known bounds for the levels of stable rationality for the quotients V/G. In particular, their growth as functions of the rank of the group is linear for G being one of the classical groups.
