According to the classical theorem, every irreducible algebraic variety endowed with a nontrivial rational action of a connected linear algebraic group is birationally isomorphic to a product of another algebraic variety and the s-dimensional projectice space with positive s. We show that the classical proof of this theorem actually works only in characteristic 0 and we give a characteristic free proof of it. To this end we prove and use a characterization of connected linear algebraic groups G with the property that every rational action of G on an irreducible algebraic variety is birationally equivalent to a regular action of G on an affine algebraic variety.

Given an action of an affine algebraic group with only trivial characters on a factorial variety, we ask for categorical quotients. We characterize existence in the category of algebraic varieties. Moreover, allowing constructible sets as quotients, we obtain a more general existence result, which, for example, settles the case of afinitely generated algebra of invariants. ...

Variations on the theme of Zariski's Cancellation Problem / Cornell University. Series math "arxiv.org". 2019. No. 1901.07030.

This is an expanded version of the talk by the author at the conference Polynomial Rings and Affine Algebraic Geometry, February 12–16, 2018, Tokyo Metropolitan University, Tokyo, Japan. Considering a local version of the Zariski Cancellation Problem naturally leads to exploration of some classes of varieties of special kind and their equivariant versions. We discuss ...

Underlying varieties and group structures / Cornell University. Series math "arxiv.org". 2021. No. 2105.12861.

Starting with exploration of the possibility to present the underlying variety of an affine algebraic group in the form of a product of some algebraic varieties, we then explore the naturally arising problem as to what extent the group variety of an algebraic group determines its group structure. ...

Embeddings of groups Aut(F_n) into automorphism groups of algebraic varieties / Cornell University. Series math "arxiv.org". 2021. No. 2106.02072.

For each integer n>0, we construct a series of irreducible algebraic varieties X, for which the automorphism group Aut(X) contains as a subgroup the automorphism group Aut(F_n) of a free group F_n of rank n. For n > 1, such groups Aut(X) are nonamenable, and for n > 2, they are nonlinear and contain the ...

On families of lagrangian tori on hyperkaehler manifolds / . 2013.

This is a note on Beauville's problem (solved by Greb, Lehn and Rollenske in the non-algebraic case and by Hwang and Weiss in general) whether a lagrangian torus on an irreducible holomorphic symplectic manifold is a fiber of a lagrangian fibration. We provide a different, very short solution in the non-algebraic case and make some ...

Exploring Bass' Triangulability Problem on unipotent algebraic subgroups of the affine Cremona groups, we prove a triangulability criterion, the existence of nontriangulable connected solvable affine algebraic subgroups of the Cremona groups, and stable triangulability of such subgroups; in particular, in the stable range we answer Bass' Triangulability Problem is the affirmative.

Given a connected reductive complex algebraic group G and a spherical subgroup H⊂G, the extended weight monoid Λˆ+G(G/H) encodes the G-module structures on spaces of regular sections of all G-linearized line bundles on G/H. Assuming that G is semisimple and simply connected and H is specified by a regular embedding in a parabolic subgroup P⊂G, ...

A general theorem on the purity of invariant field extensions is proved. Using it, a criterion of rational triangulability of connected solvable affine algebraic subgroups of the Cremona groups is obtained. This criterion is applied for proving the existence of rationally nontriangulable subgroups of the above form and for proving their stable rational triangulability. The ...

Given a connected reductive algebraic group G and a finitely generated monoid Γ of dominant weights of G, in 2005 Alexeev and Brion constructed a moduli scheme M_Γ for multiplicity-free affine G-varieties with weight monoid Γ. This scheme is equipped with an action of an `adjoint torus' T_ad and has a distinguished T_ad-fixed point X_0. ...

Algebraic groups whose orbit closures contain only finitely many orbits / Cornell University. Series math "arxiv.org". 2017. No. 1707.06914 [math.AG].

We classify all connected affine algebraic groups G such that there are only finitely many G-orbits in every algebraic G-variety containing a dense open G-orbit. We also prove that G enjoys this property if and only if every irreducible algebraic G-variety X is modality-regular, i.e., the modality of X (in the sense of V. Arnol’d) ...
