We study criteria for deciding when the normal subgroup generated by a single special polynomial automorphism of 𝔸 n is as large as possible, namely, equal to the normal closure of the special linear group in the special automorphism group. In particular, we investigate m-triangular automorphisms , i.e., those that can be expressed as a product of affine automorphisms and m triangular automorphisms. Over a field of characteristic zero, we show that every nontrivial 4-triangular special…

The affine automorphism group of A^3 is not a maximal subgroup of the tame automorphism group

We construct explicitly a family of proper subgroups of the tame automorphism group of affine three-space (in any characteristic) which are generated by the affine subgroup and a non-affine tame

Normal subgroup generated by a plane polynomial automorphism

We study the normal subgroup 〈f〉N generated by an element f ≠ id in the group G of complex plane polynomial automorphisms having Jacobian determinant 1. On the one hand, if f has length at most 8

Polynomial automorphisms over finite fields: Mimicking non-tame and tame maps by the Derksen group.

If F is a polynomial automorphism over a finite field Fq in dimen- sion n, then it induces a bijectionqr(F) of (Fqr) n for every r 2 N � . We say that F can be 'mimicked' by elements of a certain

Acylindrical hyperbolicity of the three-dimensional tame automorphism group

We prove that the group STame($k^3$) of special tame automorphisms of the affine 3-space is not simple, over any base field of characteristic zero. Our proof is based on the study of the geometry of

GENERALISATIONS OF THE TAME AUTOMORPHISMS OVER A DOMAIN OF POSITIVE CHARACTERISTIC

In this paper, we introduce two generalizations of the tame subgroup of the automorphism group of a polynomial ring over a domain of positive characteristic. We study detailed structures of these new

The tame and the wild automorphisms of polynomial rings in three variables

Let C = F [x1, x2, . . . , xn] be the polynomial ring in the variables x1, x2, . . . , xn over a field F , and let AutC be the group of automorphisms of C as an algebra over F . An automorphism τ ∈

Normal subgroups in the Cremona group

Let k be an algebraically closed field. We show that the Cremona group of all birational transformations of the projective plane $$ \mathbb{P}_{\mathbf{k}}^2 $$ is not a simple group. The strategy

Co-tame polynomial automorphisms

It is shown that the statement "Every $m$-triangular automorphism is either affine or co-tame" is true if and only if $m \leq 3$; this improves upon positive results of Bodnarchuk and negative results of the authors.

Acylindrical hyperbolicity of groups acting on trees

We provide new examples of acylindrically hyperbolic groups arising from actions on simplicial trees. In particular, we consider amalgamated products and HNN-extensions, one-relator groups,
