Automorphism and Birational Automorphism Groups of Calabi-Yau Manifolds with Picard Number Two
Sz-Sheng Wang (YMSC, Tsinghua University)


Calabi-Yau manifolds receive important interest from mathematicians and physicists, not only for the birational geometry but also for the relation with the string theory. In this talk, I will give a brief introduction to Calabi-Yau manifolds and then survey the results of K. Oguiso, V. Lazic and T. Perternell about automorphism and birational automorphism groups of Calabi-Yau manifolds with Picard number two. If time permits, I will discuss three dimensional examples and recent results about Morrison-Kawamata cone conjecture.
