## Tori in the Cremona groups

Izvestiya. Mathematics. 2013. Vol. 77. No. 4. P. 742–771.

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 affine and in special affine Cremona groups of rank *n* and introduce and discuss the notions of Jordan decomposition and torsion prime numbers for the Cremona groups.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 study topological properties of automorphisms of 4-dimensional torus generatedby integer matrices being symplectic either with respect to the standard symplecticstructure in R4 or w.r.t. a nonstandard symplectic structure generated by an integer skew-symmetric nondegenerate matrix. Such symplectic matrix generates a partially hyperbolic automorphism of the torus, if its eigenvalues are a pair of reals outsidethe unit circle and ...

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 ...
