Finite Groups of Birational Transformations

School
MATHEMATICS

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 surfacesover 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).
