Subgroups of Cremona Groups
Zeitraum17 Jun - 23 Jun 2018
There have been recent breakthroughs in two related questions: the study of Cremona groups, and the problem of rationality of algebraic varieties. Our workshop brought together algebraic geometers, who discussed and tried to solve problems that are relevant to the classification of finite subgroups of Cremona groups. Priority was given to the following four related areas: automorphisms of algebraic varieties, birational geometry of Mori fibre spaces, and rationality problems.
