### Twisting stable maps to C* equivariant space by a line bundle

Let $X$ be a $\mathbb{C}^*$-equivariant algebraic variety. Then there is a notion of a map to $X$ twisted by a line bundle. Namely, let $B$ be a variety and $L/B$ a line bundle. Let $P_L=L\setminus ...

### Classification of Tori of GL2, up to conjugation

Over an algebraically closed field $k$, every one-dimensional torus embedded (as a closed algebraic subgroup) into GL2 is diagonalisable, and the embedding is $t\mapsto (t^m,t^n)$ for some integers ...

### Projective line as a quotient by a torus

Let $k$ be a field, and let $T$ an $n$-dimensional split torus over $k$. Let $X$ be a $k$-scheme with algebraic $T$-action. Solve for X:
$$X / T \cong \mathbf{P}^1_k$$
(The quotient should be a ...

### Lifting of torus action to line bundle

Let $\mathbb{P}(V) = \mathbb{P}(\mathbb C \oplus \mathbb C)$ be with a $\mathbb C^*$ action : $\lambda (u,v) = (u,\lambda v)$.
There are two fixed points of this action, say $0$ and $\infty$. What ...

### Does there exist smooth circle action on manifolds M^{4n} with exactly three fixed points such that n\neq 1

I have a question in mind for some time. That is, does there exist a smooth circle action on a closed manifold $M^{4n}$ ($n\geq 2$) with exactly three fixed points?
Remarks:(1) For n=1, the examples ...

### The scheme-theoretic flow-in locus

Let $R$ be a ring with an $\mathbb{N}\times\mathbb{Z}$-grading. The $\mathbb{N}$-grading allows you to construct the scheme $X = \operatorname{Proj} R$, and the $\mathbb{Z}$-grading defines an action ...

### Are schematic fixed points of a torus action on an affinized twistor deformation flat?

This is a follow-up to some earlier questions about flatness of schematic fixed points of certain deformations. Since I could never come up with good enough hypotheses in those examples, let me try a ...

### Are schematic fixed-points of a Cohen-Macaulay scheme Cohen-Macaulay?

I'm not sure how long this iterative questions can go on, but let me try again. Let's say $X$ is a Cohen-Macaulay scheme with an action of $\mathbb{G}_m$ (i.e. if $X$ is affine, a grading on the ...

### Under what hypotheses are schematic fixed points of a flat deformation themselves flat?

This is something of a follow-up question to this one; I hope people won't think this is a duplicate. At least in my head, it seems like a distinct enough question to merit a fresh start.

### Line Bundles on Torus Quotient

Suppose you have a scheme $X$ that is acted on by a torus $T$. Then the action induces a grading on the functions on $X$ by the character lattice of $T$. So for a fixed character $\lambda$, we can ...
