Title: Pell's equation and automorphisms of Hilbert schemes.

Abstract: I will report on recent results in collaboration with Samuel  Boissière, Andrea Cattaneo and Marc Nieper-Wisskirchen on the  
automorphism group of the Hilbert scheme of two points on a generic K3 surface of any polarization.
In this case the Picard  number of the Hilbert scheme is two, which is  the minimal possible.
In particular by using ampleness results of Bayer-Macri and a detailed study of the isometries of the Picard lattice, I show the existence of  
non-natural non-symplectic involutions on some Hilbert scheme, depending on the degree of the polarization. In all the results the  
solutions of certain Pell's equation play a fundamental role. Time permitting I will give some overview on the situation for higher  
dimension which is the PhD topic of Alberto Cattaneo.

Title: 
Cubic hypersurfaces and hyperkaehler manifolds uniformized by the 10-dimensional complex ball.

Abstract: 
In a famous paper, Allcock, Carlson and Toledo described the moduli space of cubic threefolds as an arithmetic
quotient of the complementary of a hyperplane arrangement in a 10-dimensional complex ball. In this talk, I will  
give an interpretation of this moduli space as the space parametrizing the deformations of non-symplectic
automorphisms of order three acting on some classical family of polarized hyperkaehler
manifolds. This is a work in collaboration with Chiara Camere and Alessandra Sarti.
