Infinite transitivity, finite generation, and Demazure roots

Kuyumzhiyan K., Arzhantsev I., Zaidenberg M.
An affine algebraic variety X of dimension ≥ 2 is called flexible if the subgroup SAut(X) ⊂ Aut(X) generated by the one-parameter unipotent subgroups acts m-transitively on reg (X) for any m ≥ 1. In a preceding paper ([4]) we proved that any nondegenerate toric affine variety X is flexible. Here we show that if such a toric variety X is smooth in codimension 2 then one can find a subgroup of SAut(X) generated by a finite number of one-parameter unipotent subgroups which has the same transitivity property. In fact, four such subgroups are enough for X = A^n if n ≥ 3, and just three if n = 2.
