IPM is holding a biweekly zoom Algebraic Geometry seminar for the Fall 2022.
Meeting ID: 908 611 6889
Seminar mailing list: google group
Speaker: Yuri Prokhorov, Steklov Mathematical Institute, Moscow State University (Russia)
Title: Finite groups of birational transformations
Abstract: First, I survey know results on finite groups of birational transformations of higher-dimensional algebraic varieties. This theory has been significantly developed during the last 10 years due to the success of the minimal model program. Then I will talk about finite groups of birational transformations of surfaces over fields of positive characteristic. In particular, I will discuss a recent result on Jordan property of Cremona groups over finite fields (joint with Constantin Shramov).
