Title: Automorphisms of algebraic varieties
Speaker: John Lesieutre
Speaker Info: University of Illinois at Chicago
Brief Description:
Abstract:

Automorphisms of algebraic varieties appear in many contexts, both within and beyond algebraic geometry. I will discuss some examples with connections to number theory and dynamics, and explain my recent result showing that these automorphism groups are not always finitely generated.
