Questions about the group of automorphisms of any mathematical object $X$ endowed with a given structure, i.e the group of all bijective maps from $X$ to itself preserving this structure, and hence helping study it further and understand it better.

### automorphism group of a given period

Maxim Kontsevich and Don Zagier defined the algebra of periods and conjectured that one can pass from a representation of a given period to another one using only three rules. Assuming this conjecture,...

### Graph automorphism that swaps two pairs of nodes

Suppose we have two automorphisms on a graph $G$ such that each one swaps a separate pairs of vertices. Is it possible to construct (or prove the existence of) a third automorphism that swaps both ...

### Does the linear automorphism group determine the vector space?

I was recently thinking about what it means to put structure on a set. It seems to me that, in my area (representation theory), the two main ways of imposing structure on a set $X$ are: ...

### When is Aut(G) the symmetric group of an Aut(G)-invariant generating set?

Let $G$ be a group, $X$ a generating set of $G$. Suppose $X$ is $\operatorname{Aut}(G)$-invariant, i.e. $\sigma(X)\subseteq X$ for all $\sigma \in \operatorname{Aut}(G)$. When is the restriction ...

### edge transitivity and edge deletion

Let G be a graph which has the following properties: 1) For every $e_1,e_2 \notin E(G)$, $G \cup e_1 \cong G \cup e_2$ 2) For every $e_1,e_2 \in E(G)$, $G\setminus e_1 \cong G\setminus e_2$ i.e. ...

### Automorphism group of a smooth quadric $Q\subset\mathbb{P}^4$

Let $Q$ be the smooth quadric threefold in $\mathbb{P}^4_{\mathbb{C}}$ defined by the equation $x_0x_4+x_1x_3+x_2^2=0$. Is it true that the automorphism group of $Q$ is $SO(Q;\mathbb{C})$ which is ...
