No. 1307.5522.

This is an expanded version of my talk at the workshop ``Groups of Automorphisms in Birational and Affine Geometry'', October 29–November 3, 2012, Levico Terme, Italy. The first section is focused on Jordan groups in abstract setting, the second on that in the settings of automorphisms groups and groups of birational self-maps of algebraic varieties. The appendix is an expanded version of my notes on open problems posted on the site of this workshop. It contains formulations of some open problems and the relevant comments.

We classify three-dimensional singular cubic hypersurfaces with an action of a finite group G, which are not G-rational and have no birational structure of G-Mori fiber space with the base of positive dimension. Also we prove the 𝔄5A5-birational superrigidity of the Segre cubic. ...

Let $\ka$ be any field of characteristic zero, $X$ be a del Pezzo surface and $G$ be a finite subgroup in $\Aut(X)$. In this paper we study when the quotient surface $X / G$ can be non-rational over $\ka$. Obviously, if there are no smooth $\ka$-points on $X / G$ then it is not $\ka$-rational. ...

In a previous paper we established that for any del Pezzo surface Y of degree at least 4, the affine cone X over Y embedded via a pluri-anticanonical linear system admits an effective Ga-action. In particular, the group Aut(X) is infinite dimensional. In contrast, we show in this note that for a del Pezzo surface ...

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 ...

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 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 ...

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 ...

We address the following question: When an affine cone over a smooth Fano threefold admits an effective action of the additive group? In this paper we deal with Fano threefolds of index 1 and Picard number 1. Our approach is based on a geometric criterion from our previous paper, which relates the existence of an ...

We also show that one of these four distinguished varieties is birationally rigid ...

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 ...
