On the automorphisms of compact Kähler manifolds
The automorphism group of a compact Kähler manifold satisfies Tits alternative: any subgroup either admits a solvable subgroup of finite index or contains a free non-abelian group of two generators (Campana-WangZhang). In the first case, this group cannot be too big. Some algebraic (rational) manifolds with special automorphisms admit infinitely many nonequivalent real forms. This talk is based on my (old and recent) works with F. Hu, H.-Y. Lin, V.-A. Nguyen, K. Oguiso, N. Sibony, X. Yu, D.-Q. Zhang.
