Birational Automorphisms and infinite divisibility
Jérémy, thanks a lot for the results and references! I was in fact curious if anything is known about the growth rate of the degree of a general birational automorphism (in arbitrary dimension)? I realize one can't expect a general classification, but perhaps something besides the possibility of exponential growth is known? |

Unfortunately the Cantat and Lamy results and methods apply only to the planar Cremona group, as far as I understand them. The hyperbolic space comes from the intersection form on the divisors, and that's only available in dimension two. |

Birational Automorphisms and infinite divisibility
@Mariano I was hoping to suggest that "birational action" means a birational map $\mathbb{G}_a\times X \to X$ with the natural compatibility conditions making it an action. This would be one way to make sense of the question, but there might be other reasonable ones. |

Apologies for being vague, I've tried to fix the question a bit. Yves, unfortunately I'm ignorant even about the algebraic situation. |

Hyperbolicity for Algebraic Varities and relation to curves on them
Thanks so much! I guess I need to learn how to do computations, not only the statements of the theorems :) |
