CMSA Mathematical Physics Seminar: Some new results on automorphisms of hypersurfaces
Zhiwei Zheng - Max Planck Institute
It is natural to study automorphisms of hypersurfaces in projective spaces. In this talk, I will discuss a new approach to determine all possible orders of automorphisms of smooth hypersurfaces with fixed degree and dimension. Then we consider the specific case of cubic fourfolds, and discuss the relation with Hodge theory.
