## On the automorphism group of a toral variety

Mathematical Communications. 2023. Vol. 28. No. 2. P. 277–291.

Let K be an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero. An affine algebraic variety X over K is toral if it is isomorphic to a closed subvariety of a torus K*. We study the group Aut(X) of regular automorpshims of a toral variety X. We prove that if T is a maximal torus in Aut(X), then X is a direct product YxT, where Y is a toral variety with a trivial maximal torus in the automorphism group. We show that knowing Aut (Y), one can compute Aut(X). In the case when the rank of the group K[Y]^*/K^* is dim Y + 1, the group Aut(Y) can be described explicitly.

We consider the systems of diffusion-orthogonal polynomials, defined in the
work [1] of D. Bakry, S. Orevkov and M. Zani and (particularly) explain why
these systems with boundary of maximal possible degree should always come from
the group, generated by reflections. Our proof works for the dimensions $2$ (on
which this phenomena was discovered) and $3$, and fails in ...

Mark Haiman has reduced Macdonald positivity conjecture to a statement about geometry of the Hilbert scheme of points on the plane, and formulated a generalization of the conjectures where the symmetric group is replaced by the wreath product $S_n\ltimes (Z/r Z)^n$. He has proven the original conjecture by establishing the geometric statement about the Hilbert ...

We construct quasi-phantom admissible subcategories in the derived category of coherent sheaves on the Beauville surface S. These quasi-phantoms subcategories appear as right orthogonals to subcategories generated by exceptional collections of maximal possible length 4 on S. We prove that there are exactly 6 exceptional collections consisting of line bundles (up to a twist) and these collections ...

We establish faithfulness of braid group actions generated by twists along an ADE configuration of 22-spherical objects in a derived category. Our major tool is the Garside structure on braid groups of type ADE. This faithfulness result provides the missing ingredient in Bridgeland's description of a space of stability conditions associated to a Kleinian singularity. ...

In the authors's previous work on symmetric differentials and their
connection to the topological properties of the ambient manifold, a class of
symmetric differentials was introduced: closed symmetric differentials
([BoDeO11] and [BoDeO13]). In this article we give a description of the local
structure of closed symmetric 2-differentials on complex surfaces, with an
emphasis towards the local decompositions as products of ...

We define the triangulated category of relative singularities of a closed subscheme in a scheme. When the closed subscheme is a Cartier divisor, we consider matrix factorizations of the related section of a line bundle, and their analogues with locally free sheaves replaced by coherent ones. The appropriate exotic derived category of coherent matrix factorizations ...

Contraherent cosheaves are globalizations of cotorsion (or similar) modules over commutative rings obtained by gluing together over a scheme. The category of contraherent cosheaves over a scheme is a Quillen exact category with exact functors of infinite product. Over a quasi-compact semi-separated scheme or a Noetherian scheme of finite Krull dimension (in a different version ...

We prove a new local inequality for divisors on surfaces and utilize it to compute α-invariants of singular del Pezzo surfaces, which implies that del Pezzo surfaces of degree one whose singular points are of type A1 , A2 , A3 , A4 , A5 , or A6 are Kähler-Einstein. ...

In \cite{Ku0}, the ambiguity index $a_{(G,O)}$ was introduced for each
equipped finite group $(G,O)$. It is equal to the number of connected
components of a Hurwitz space parametrizing coverings of a projective line with
Galois group $G$ assuming that all local monodromies belong to conjugacy
classes $O$ in $G$ and the number of branch points is greater than some
constant. ...

We prove that any compact K\"ahler 3-dimensional manifold which has no non-trivial complex subvarieties is a torus. This is a very special case of a general conjecture on the structure of 'simple manifolds', central in the bimeromorphic classification of compact K\"ahler manifolds. The proof follows from the Brunella pseudo-effectivity theorem, combined with fundamental results of ...

We consider 3 -periodic orbits in an elliptic billiard. Numerical experiments conducted by Dan Reznik have shown that the locus of the centers of inscribed circles of the corresponding triangles is an ellipse. We prove this fact by the complexification of the problem coupled with the complex law of reflection. ...

Given an affine algebraic variety X, we prove that if the neutral component Aut◦(X) of the automorphism group consists of algebraic elements, then it is nested, i.e., is a direct limit of algebraic subgroups. This improves our earlier result (see Perepechko and Regeta [Transform. Groups 28 (2023), pp. 401–412]). To prove it, we obtain the ...

For each del Pezzo surface $S$ with du Val singularities, we determine
whether it admits a $(-K_S)$-polar cylinder or not. If it allows one, then we
present an effective divisor $D$ that is $\mathbb{Q}$-linearly equivalent to
$-K_S$ and such that the open set $S\setminus\mathrm{Supp}(D)$ is a cylinder.
As a corollary, we classify all the del Pezzo surfaces with du ...

We study the geometry of equiclassical strata of the discriminant in the space of plane curves of a given degree, which are families of curves of given degree, genus and class (degree of the dual curve). Our main observation is that the use of duality transformation leads to a series of new sufficient conditions for ...

A k-isogeny class of abelian varieties over a finite field k is uniquely determined by the Weil polynomial f of any variety from this class. When we consider classification problems concerning abelian varieties inside an isogeny class, the classification can be given in terms of the corresponding Weil polynomial. In this paper we improve our ...
