### Strictly Convex Smoothing of a function defined on an affine manifold

A function defined on an interval is strongly convex if it has positive definite second derivative. A function on an affine manifold is strongly convex
if its restriction to each line is. An affine ...

### Compactification of the affine space with a del Pezzo surface

Is there some nice compactification of the affine space with a del Pezzo surface of degree $\le 4$ (for example with a cubic surface) ?
More precisely, I would like a projective algebraic variety $X$ ...

### Is there a way to make MAGMA work with surfaces over weighted projective spaces?

Is there a way to use MAGMA to study surfaces defined over a weighted projective space (by "study" I mean computing e.g. invariants (e.g. $p_a$, $p_g$), singularities, etc)? For example, I was trying, ...

### Does the coordinate ring of affine variety admit a structure of infinite dimensional variety?

We work in the category of algebraic varieties over
some algebraically closed field $k$.
By infinite dimensional variety I mean a filtration:
$$
V_0\subset V_1\subset V_2\subset\ldots
$$
where each ...

### Line-preserving bijection of ${\mathbb{R}}^n$ onto itself

If $f:{\mathbb{R}}^n\to{\mathbb{R}}^n$ $(n\ge2)$ is a bijection such that the image of every line is a line (continuity of $f$ not assumed), must $f$ be affinity?
Assuming continuity would certainly ...

### Is an affine fibration over an affine space necessarily trivial?

Let $X$ be an algebraic variety over an alg. closed field with zero char. and let $f:X\to \mathbb{A}^n$ be a smooth surjective morphism, such that all fibers (at closed points) are isomorphic to ...

### Diameter-area ratio for affine tranformations.

Consider an convex plane figure $F$. How to prove that there is an affine transformation $a$ such that $\sqrt{3}$ diameter$(a(F))^2\leq 4$ area$(a(F))$?
I found only one reference, to "Über einige ...
