### Orbits of group scheme action

I am interested in orbits of the action of a group scheme on a scheme and I'm particularly interested in the following special case: Let $k$ be an algebraically closed field, let $G$ be an affine ...

### Actions on ℍⁿ generated by torsion elements

Let $n$ be a large integer.
I am looking for a cocompact properly discontinuous isometric action on $n$-dimensional Lobachevky space which is generated by elements of finite order.
Or equivalently, ...

### Can a non-trivial action of a connected group on a reduced scheme be trivial on a dense open?

It is well-known that if a reduced algebraic group $G$ acts on a separated reduced scheme $X$, and $G$ acts trivially on a dense open subscheme $U\subseteq X$, then the action is trivial.
If $X$ is ...

### Does the semi-stable set determine the linearization of a GIT quotient?

Suppose I have a morphism $f:X\to Y$ which is a GIT quotient of $X$ with respect to some reductive, linear group.
Does the semistable $X^{ss}$ and stable locus $X^s\subset X$ determine completely the ...

### Is there an invariant theory explanation of the orbit structure of GL₂ acting on second-diagonal symmetric matrices by g∙X = gXJg^tJ ?

Statement of the Specific Result
Let $J$ denote the matrices with ones on the "second diagonal", meaning the diagonal between the (1,n) and (n,1) entry, and zeros elsewhere. So in the case $n=2$, ...

### Questions on orbit properties of group action on varieties

Let $F$ be a p-adic field or $\mathbb{R},\mathbb{C}$, $G$ a group(not necessarily reductive) over $F$, $X$ an algebraic variety defined over $F$, and $G$ acts on $X$. Now we have several questions ...

### Do subgroups respect the orbit-closure relation?

Suppose G is a Lie group (or algebraic group) acting on a manifold (or scheme) X, and H⊆G is a subgroup. Let x,y∈X be points such that x is in the closure of the orbit H⋅y (but not in ...
