Variations on the theme of Zariski's Cancellation Problem

arxiv.org. math. Cornell University, 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 several topics inspired by this exploration, including the problem of classifying a class of affine algebraic groups that are naturally singled out in studying the conjugacy problem for algebraic subgroups of the Cremona groups.
