## Automorphisms of pointless surfaces

For a geometrically rational surface X over a perfect field of characteristic different from 2 that contains all roots of 1, we show that either X is birational to a product of a projective line and a conic, or the group of birational automorphisms of X has bounded finite subgroups. As an auxiliary result, we show boundedness of finite subgroups in anisotropic linear algebraic groups of bounded rank and number of connected components. Also, we provide applications to Jordan property for groups of birational automorphisms.

We introduce a category of rigid geometries on singular spaces which
are leaf spaces of foliations and are considered as leaf manifolds. We
single out a special category F_0 of leaf manifolds containing the orbifold
category as a full subcategory. Objects of F_0 may have non-Hausdorff
topology unlike the orbifolds. The topology of some objects of F_0 does
not satisfy ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

exists an “algebraic normal form” to ...

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 ...

The basic automorphism group of a Cartan foliation (M, F) is the quotient group of the automorphism group of (M, F) by the normal subgroup, which preserves every leaf invariant. For Cartan foliations covered by fibrations, we find sufficient conditions for the existence of a structure of a finite-dimensional Lie group in their basic automorphism groups. Estimates ...
