Flexible bundles over rigid affine surfaces

Adrien Dubouloz[1]

(1) Université de Bourgogne, Dijon, France

We construct a smooth rational ane surface $S$ with finite automorphism group but with the property that the group of automorphisms of the cylinder $S \times \mathbb A^2$ acts infinitely transitively on the complement of a closed subset of codimension at least two. Such a surface $S$ is in particular rigid but not stably rigid with respect to the Makar-Limanov invariant.

Keywords: Rigid and flexible varieties, stable rigidity, rational surfaces, Makar-Limanov invariant
