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 ∈ AutC is called elementary if it has a form τ : (x1, . . . , xi−1, xi, xi+1, . . . , xn) 7→ (x1, . . . , xi−1, αxi + f, xi+1, . . . , xn), where 0 6= α ∈ F, f ∈ F [x1, . . . , xi−1, xi+1, . . . , xn]. The subgroup of AutC generated by all the elementary automorphisms is called the tame subgroup, and…

Let k be a field of characteristic p > 0. We discuss the automorphisms of the polynomial ring k[x1, . . . , xn] of order p, or equivalently the Z/pZ-actions on the affine space A k . When n = 2, such

A new co-tame automorphism of the polynomial ring

In this paper, we discuss subgroups of the automorphism group of the polynomial ring in n variables over a field of characteristic zero. An automorphism F is said to be {\it co-tame} if the subgroup

A note on k[z]-automorphisms in two variables


Let F = (F1, . . . , Fn) : Cn → Cn be any polynomial mapping. The multidegree of F , denoted mdegF, is the sequence of positive integers (degF1, . . . , degFn). In this paper we address the following

Multidegrees of tame automorphisms of C^n

Let F=(F_1,...,F_n):C^n --> C^n be a polynomial mapping. By the multidegree of the mapping F we mean mdeg F=(deg F_1,...,deg F_n), an element of N^n. The aim of this paper is to study the following

Homogeneous locally nilpotent derivations and affine ML-surfaces

Let B = k[X0, Xi, X2] be the polynomial ring in three variables over an algebraically closed field k of characteristic zero. We consider the homogeneous case of the problem of describing locally

A non-tame and non-co-tame automorphism of the polynomial ring

An automorphism $F$ of the polynomial ring in $n$ variables over a field of characteristic zero is said to be {\it co-tame} if the subgroup of the automorphism group of the polynomial ring generated


Abstract. We describe the automorphism groups of elliptic Poisson algebras on poly-nomial algebras in three variables and give an explicit set of generators and definingrelations for this group.

Coordinates and automorphisms of polynomial and free associative algebras of rank three

We study z-automorphisms of the polynomial algebra K[x, y, z] and the free associative algebra K 〈x, y, z〉 over a field K, i.e., automorphisms that fix the variable z. We survey some recent results



Poisson brackets and two-generated subalgebras of rings of polynomials

Let A = F [x1, x2, . . . , xn] be a ring of polynomials over a field F on the variables x1, x2, . . . , xn. It is well known (see, for example, [11]) that the study of automorphisms of the algebra A

Automorphisms of a free associative algebra of rank 2. II

Let R be a commutative domain with 1. R(x, y) stands for the free associative algebra of rank 2 over R; R[x, y>] is the polynomial algebra over R in the commuting indeterminates x' and y. We prove

Automorphisms of polynomial rings

We discuss some problems concerning the group GAn(k) of automorphisms of a polynomial algebra [k]n = k[X1,...,Xn] over a commutative ring k . We view GAn(k) as a non-linear generalization of its


We obtain a characterization of tame automorphisms of the free Leibniz algebra in two variables. It gives an algorithm to recognize tame automorphisms. Using these results we construct a wild

Quantization of poisson superalgebras and speciality of jordan poisson superalgebras

The problem of speciality and i-speciality is considered for Jordan superalgebras related with Poisson superalgebras. The quantizations of Poisson superalgebras play an important role in the
