### What are the compact Aut(A) of an algebra A(G), G finite, that contains the identity?

If we have an algebra A over a finite group G, then if G is non-abelian we can have a non-trivial set of compact automorphisms of A that map the elements of G onto a set isomorphic to G. It may be ...

### Abelian torsion-free group with $\mathbb{Z}_2\times\mathbb{Z}$ as automorphism group

Let $A$ be an abelian torsion-free group. If $A$ is isomorphic with the group of rational numbers whose denominators are powers of, say, $2$, then its automorphism group is isomorphic with $\mathbb{Z}...

### Automorphism group of the special unitary group $SU(N)$

Let us consider the automorphism group of the special unitary group $G=SU(N)$.
We know there is an exact sequence:
$$
0 \to \text{Inn}(G) \to \text{Aut}(G) \to \text{Out}(G) \to 0.
$$
For $G=SU(2)...

### Does similar automorphism group imply similar extension complexity?

Definition: Extension complexity of a polytope $P$ in $\mathbb R^n$ is the minimal number of facets a polytope in $\mathbb R^{n'}$ with $n'\geq n$ needs such that its projection is $P$.
Do there ...
