### Simultaneous action of GL(n) on matrices

Consider the action of $GL(n,k)$ on the set $M\times M$ where $M$ is the set of all $n$-by-$n$ matrices over $k$ given by $g\cdot(h,l) \mapsto (ghg^{-1}, glg^t)$. Individually these actions are well-...

### On orders of stabilisers of group actions and stacks

Let $X$ be a finite type irreducible separated DM-stack over $\mathbb C$. Let $x$ be an object of $X(\mathbb C)$ with stabilizer $G_x$. Let $y$ be an object of $X(\mathbb C)$ with stabilizer $G_y$. ...

### Can a surface group act on a finite-valence simplicial tree?

Question. Let $S$ be a closed surface of genus $> 1$. Can $\pi_1(S)$ act faithfully and minimally on a simplicial tree of finite valence? Here "minimal" means that there is no invariant sub-tree. ...

### Transverse intersection in the $G$-orbit of paths

I know how to prove the following lemma but I assume that it is well-known. Can someone provide a reference for it? Let $d>1$ and let $M$ be a $d$-dimensional connected smooth manifold with a ...

### Is the direct sum in Maschke's Theorem an orthogonal decomposition?

I am reading a paper on coding theory, and it uses a statement, which was claimed to be a reformulation of Maschke's Theorem. But I felt that was false... Let's say $\mathcal(V):=\mathcal{F}_2^n$ is ...

### Equivariant Derived Category

Can someone give me a reference for the following or an idea on why it is true? (This is taken from remark 1.5 on page 5 of http://arxiv.org/abs/0810.0794.) Suppose we have an algebraic group $G$ ...
### Certain principal bundle structure on $\mathbb{R}^{n} \setminus \{0\}$
I ask this question in MSE and I received no answer, so I repeat it here: Is there a right action of $\mathbb{H}^{2}$ on some $\mathbb{R}^{n}\setminus \{0\}$ such that this action gives us a ...
Using that all groups that act freely on some sphere $S^n$ have periodic cohomology, one can see that $\mathbb Z/2 \times \mathbb Z/2$ can not act freely on any $S^n$. But can it act freely on \$S^{\...
