By an exotic algebraic structure on the affine space ${\bf C}^n$ we mean a smooth affine algebraic variety which is diffeomorphic to ${\bf R}^{2n}$ but not isomorphic to ${\bf C}^n$. This is a survey of the recent developement on the subject, which emphasizes its analytic aspects and points out some open problems. 
Families of exotic affine 3-spheres
We construct algebraic families of exotic affine 3-spheres, that is, smooth affine threefolds diffeomorphic to a non-degenerate smooth complex affine quadric of dimension 3 but non-algebraically
The Role Of Exotic Affine Spaces In the Classification Of Homogeneous Affine Varieties
Let G be a connected linear algebraic group over ℂ and let H a closed algebraic subgroup. A fundamental problem in the study of homogeneous spaces is to describe, characterize, or classify those
On exotic affine 3-spheres
Every $\mathbb{A}^{1}-$bundle over the complex affine plane punctured at the origin, is trivial in the differentiable category but there are infinitely many distinct isomorphy classes of algebraic
$${\mathbb A}^1$$ -homotopy Theory and Contractible Varieties: A Survey
We survey some topics in ${\mathbb A}^1$-homotopy theory. Our main goal is to highlight the interplay between ${\mathbb A}^1$-homotopy theory and affine algebraic geometry, focusing on the varieties
We give a classification of normal affine surfaces admitting analgebraic group action with an open orbit. In particular an explicit algebraic description of the affine coordinate rings and the
Challenging problems on affine $n$-space
Complex affine n-space C^n, the basic object of algebraic geometry, offers a number of exciting and striking problems. The most famous one, the Jacobian Conjecture is the still unsolved. Others are
Computations in A1-homotopy theory
We introduce Koras-Russell fiber bundles over algebraically closed fields of characteristic zero. After a single suspension, this exhibits an infinite family of smooth affine A1-contractible 3-folds.
Smooth contractible threefolds with hyperbolic $\mathbb{G}_{m}$-actions via ps-divisors
The aim of this note is to give an alternative proof of a theorem of Koras and Russell, that is, a characterization of smooth contractible affine varieties endowed with a hyperbolic action of the
Vector bundles on contractible smooth schemes
We discuss algebraic vector bundles on smooth k-schemes X contractible from the standpoint of A^1-homotopy theory; when k = C, the smooth manifolds X(C) are contractible as topological spaces. The
A1 contractibility of affine modifications
We introduce Koras-Russell fiber bundles over algebraically closed fields of characteristic zero. After a single suspension, this exhibits an infinite family of smooth affine A1-contractible 3-folds.


Complex hypersurfaces diffeomorphic to affine spaces
PROBLEM A. Topological characterization of the complex affine space C. Let X be an w-dimensional smooth affine variety over C. Is it possible to impose some topological conditions on X which imply
Exotic analytic structures and Eisenman intrinsic measures
Using Eisenman intrinsic measures we prove a cancellation theorem. This theorem allows to find new examples of exotic analytic structures onCn under which we understand smooth complex affine
Isotrivial Families of Curves on Affine Surfaces and Characterization of the Affine Plane
The main result is a characterization of C2 as a smooth acyclic algebraic surface on which there exist simply connected algebraic curves (possibly singular and reducible) or isotrivial
Smooth contractible hypersurfaces in Cn and exotic algebraic structures on C3
In this paper we study complex affine algebraic varieties that are diffeomorphic to R E" but not isomorphic to C". According to [-Z1 Z3] we shall refer to these varieties as to exotic algebraic
A geometrical procedure for killing the middle dimensional homology groups of algebraic hypersurfaces
Explicit construction for decomposition of algebraic hyper- surfaces into a connected sum of handles and a homological projective space is discussed. Also a connection is provided between Levine's
A topological characterisation of the affine plane as an algebraic variety
This investigation arose from an attempt to answer the following question, raised by M. P. Murthy: If X is an affine algebraic variety over a field k such that X x A' e A3, where An denotes the
Homology Planes an Announcement and Survey
We review recent advances dealing with homology planes, i.e., non singular affine acyclic surfaces over the complex numbers C. Here acyclic means vanishing integral reduced homology. From a
