I will briefly recall a criterion for the finiteness of the transverse action in the case of algebraically integrable foliations (i.e. foliations whose leaves coincide with the fibres of a fibration). Then I will explain how the presence of certain transverse structures on the foliation allow to recover the same result; in this case, one can study the monodromy of such a structure (which is defined in an analogous way as that of a more familiar (G,X)-structure) and apply factorization results in order to reduce the problem to subvarieties of quotients of the product of unit discs, whose geometry is now quite well understood.

Almost homogeneous curves and surfaces

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik]]>

In this talk, I will explain how to classify the pairs (X,G) where X is a curve or a surface and G is a smooth and connected algebraic group acting on X with a dense orbit.

For curves, I will mainly focus on the regular ones, defined over an arbitrary field. Over an algebraically closed field, the "natural" notion of non-singularity is "smoothness". However, over an arbitrary field, the weaker notion of "regularity" is more suitable. I will recall the difference between those two notions and show that there exist regular homogeneous curves which are not smooth.

For surfaces, I will restrict to the smooth ones, defined over an algebraically closed field. The situation is more complicated than for curves. Moreover, new phenomena and several difficulties appear in positive characteristic, and I will highlight them. ]]>

Some affine plane bundles over the punctured affine plane

The famous Dolgachev-Weisfeiler conjecture predicts that such fibrations are in fact isomorphic to the trivial bundle. We will show that this holds true in some particular examples. For instance, we will recover a result of Drew Lewis which states that the $\mathbb{A}^2$-fibration induced by the second Vénéreau polynomial is trivial.

Our proof is inspired by a previous work of Kaliman and Zaidenberg and consists in first showing that the considered fibrations have a fiber bundle structure when restricted over the punctured affine plane.

Geometric Lang-Vojta Conjecture in P^2

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

In the (split) function field case the conjecture predicts (weak) algebraic hyperbolicity for log-general type varieties.When the completion of the variety is the projective plane the conjecture is known both if the divisor at infinity consits of four lines in general position (Brownawell-Masser and,independently, Voloch) and for a conic and two lines with five singular points (Corvaja and Zannier). With different methods Chen and Pacienza-Rousseau proved that the conjecture holds in the hyperbolic case, i.e. the complement of a very generic curve of degree at least 5.

In the talk, after an introduction to this fascinating subject, we will show how to prove the conjecture in general for the complement of a very generic curve of degree at least four.The proof relies on a deformation argument applied to a conic and two lines and on the theory of logarithmic stable maps as defined by Abramovich-Chen (and independently by Gross and Siebert) which extends usual stable maps to the logarithmic category (in the sense of Kato and Illusie). ]]>

Generalisations of the tame automorphisms over a domain of positive characteristic

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

Given a domain R of characteristic p >0, there exist two subgroups of the group GAn(R) of polynomial automorphisms which are natural generalisations of the linear group GL_{n}(R).

1) The subgroup of additive automorphisms, i.e. automorphisms with n components satisfying f(x+y) =f(x)+f(y) where x and y are set of n variables.

2) The subgroup of automorphisms with a Jacobian matrix in GL_{n}(R).

The subgroup generated by the translations and automorphisms of the type 1 (resp. 2) is called geometrically affine (resp. differentially affine). This group, together with the triangular automorphisms, generates the subgroup of geometrically tame (resp. differentially tame) automorphisms. We study these groups in dimension 2. We prove that they are different and endowed with a nice structure of amalgamated product.

Theorem. If f, g : X → **C**^{m} are algebraic embeddings and 2 dimX+ 1≤m, then there exists a holomorphic automorphism φ of **C**^{m} such that φ◦f=g.

The main tools for this construction are the geometric invariant theory and the invariant Quot schemes. Moreover, the moduli space M is naturally equipped with a morphism μ: M → X//G which turns to be a “nice” desingularization of the quotient X//G in many situations.

**Conjecture (Gizatullin):** The big orbit of a Gizatullin surface *V* coincides with its smooth locus, i. e. O = *V*_{reg} .

We show that the action of the automorphism group of a smooth Gizatullin surface with a distinguished and rigid extended divisor is not transitive in general. Thus such surfaces represent counterexamples to Gizatullin’s conjecture. For such surfaces we give an explicit orbit decomposition of the natural action of the automorphism group. Moreover, the automorphism group of such smooth Gizatullin surfaces can be represented as an amalgamated product of two automorphism subgroups.

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

In 1968, Dixmier posed six problems for the algebra of polynomial differential operators, i.e. the Weyl algebra. In 1975, Joseph solved the third and sixth problems and, in 2005, I solved the fifth problem and gave a positive solution to the fourth problem but only for homogeneous differential operators. The remaining three problems are still open. The first problem/conjecture of Dixmier (which is equivalent to the Jacobian Conjecture as was shown in 2005-07 by Tsuchimito, Belov and Kontsevich) claims that the Weyl algebra 'behaves' as a finite field extension. In more detail, the first problem/conjecture of Dixmier asks: is it true that an algebra endomorphism of the Weyl algebra is an automorphism? In 2010, I proved that this question has an affirmative answer for the algebra of polynomial integro-differential operators. In my talk, I will explain the main ideas, the structure of the proof and recent progress on the first problem/conjecture of Dixmier.

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

In this talk, we will see that *H* is a smooth variety when the dimension of *V* is small, but that *H* is generally singular. When *H* is smooth, the Hilbert-Chow morphism *H* -> *X*//*G* is a canonical resolution of the singularities of the categorical quotient *X*//*G* (=Spec(*k*[*X*]^{G})). Then it is natural to ask what are the good geometric properties of this resolution (for instance if it is crepant).

To finish, we will mention some analogue results in the symplectic setting, that is to say by letting *p*=*q* and replacing *X* by the zero fiber of the moment map. The quotients that we get by doing this are isomorphic to the closures of nilpotent orbits, and the Hilbert-Chow morphism is a resolution of their singularities (sometimes a symplectic one).

torus action (corresponding to monomial ideals), where two such vertices are connected by an edge if there exists a one-dimensional torus orbit whose closure contains the corresponding fixed points. I will describe some conditions for the existence of an edge between two given vertices.

This is joint work with Diane Maclaga.

nonsingular del Pezzo surfaces and conic bundles.

The description by equations of nonsingular Del Pezzo surfaces in weighted projective spaces and description of their automorphism groups is a very old completed problem. The description of the ''minimal'' finite subgroups of automorphism groups of nonsingular del Pezzo surfaces was done by I.V. Dolgachev and V.A. Iskovskikh in 2007. I constructed a method that allows us to describe by equations in weighted projective spaces the nonsingular conic bundles with an action of ''minimal'' subgroup of automorphisms . I applied the method in case, when the ''minimal'' subgroup of automorphisms is nonsolvable.

]]>The representation type of a projective variety

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

ACM sheaves also provide a criterium to determine the complexity of the underlying variety. More concretely, this complexity can be studied in terms of the dimension and number of families of indecomposable ACM sheaves that it supports, namely its \emph{representation type}. Along this line, a variety that admits only a finite number of indecomposable ACM sheaves (up to twist and isomorphism) is called of

How primary decomposition of monoid congruences and binomial ideals is wrong

Ideally one would want to carry out algebraic computations, such as primary decomposition of binomial ideals, entirely in this combinatorial language. We will present such a calculus, enabling one to compute by looking at pictures of monoids.

]]>Minimal representatives of even liaison classes

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

In this talk we introduce a theoretical definition for 'minimal' representatives in any even linkage class. We show that these ideals

exist under reasonable assumptions on the linkage class, and, in general, if they exist they are essentially unique.

We then show that these ideals minimize homological invariants (e.g. Betti numbers, multiplicity, etc.) and they enjoy the best homological and local properties among all the ideals in their even linkage class. This justifies why they are, in some sense, the `best' possible ideals in the even linkage class.

We provide several classes of ideals that are the minimal representatives of their even linkage classes (including determinantal ideals) and, if time permits, show an easy application to produce more evidence towards the Buchsbaum-Eisenbud-Horrocks Conjecture. ]]>

On the annihilators of rational functions in the Lie algebra of derivations of k[x, y]

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

Let us consider the Lie algebra W

of subalgebras in W

Let us consider natural action of the Lie algebra W_{2}(K) on the field of rational functions K(x,y). Recall that every derivation D

of W_{2}(K) of the ring K[x,y] can be uniquely extended to a derivation of the field K(x,y). It is natural to consider for a

fixed rational function u in K(x,y)\K the set A_{W_{2}}(u) of all derivations D of W_{2} such that D(u)=0. This set is called the annihilator

of u in W_{2}(K). It is a Lie subalgebra of W_{2}(K) and at the same time a K[x,y]-submodule of the K[x,y]-module W_{2}(K).

We show that it is a free K[x,y]-module of rank 1 and describe centralizers of elements and the maximal abelian subalgebras of the

Lie algebra A_{W_{2}}(u).

We will look at some infinite dimensional symmetric spaces of non-positive curvature which have a remarkable property : they have finite rank. There exists a positive integer p such that any isometrically embedded Euclidean space has dimension at most p.

The talk will be focused on the properties of these spaces and some group actions which come from (non-unitary) infinite-dimensional representations.

Factorial algebraic group actions and categorical quotients

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

We begin with a survey of known results concerning categorical quotients.

Given an action of an affine algebraic group with only trivial characters on a factorial variety, we characterize existence of categorical quotient 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 a finitely generated algebra of invariants. As an application, we provide a combinatorial GIT-type construction of categorial quotients for actions on, e.g. complete, varieties with finitely generated Cox ring via lifting to the universal torsor. ]]>
