|Title:||Jordan properties of groups of birational automorphisms of algebraic surfaces|
|Seminar:||Algebra and Number Theory Seminar|
|Speaker:||Yuri Zarhin, Penn State University|
|We prove that an analogue of Jordan's theorem on finite subgroups of general linear groups does not hold for the groups of birational automorphisms of products of an elliptic curve and the projective line. This gives a negative answer to a question of Vladimir Popov.|
