Title: Pseudo-automorphisms with invariant elliptic curves
Abstract: We describe an explicit method of constructing pseudo-automorphisms of a blowup X of a multi-projective space along a set of distinct points. The centers of blowup are chosen to lie on an elliptic normal curve and are determined using the arithmetic on the curve. These pseudo-automorphisms have dynamical degree greater than 1. We will also discuss an invariant metric on Pic(X). This is joint work with E. Bedford and J. Diller.
