Title:Jordan Groups and Automorphism Groups of Algebraic Surfaces
Seminar:Algebra and Number Theory Seminar
Speaker:Tatiana Bandman, Bar-Ilan University
A classical theorem of Jordan may be viewed as an assertion that all finite subgroups of the complex general linear group GL(n) are ``almost abelian". I will discuss a similar property of the automorphism group of a complex algebraic variety. This is a joint work with Yuri Zarhin.
