On the hypersurface \(x+x^2y+z^2+t^3=0\) in \(\mathbb{C}^4\) or a \(\mathbb{C}^3\)-like threefold which is not \(\mathbb{C}^3\). (English) Zbl 0896.14021
In this note the author proves that the threefold in \(\mathbb{C}^4\) which is given by \(x+x^2y+ z^2+t^3=0\) is not isomorphic to \(\mathbb{C}^3\). The proof uses locally nilpotent derivations on rings. The problem is related with the linearizing conjecture for the actions of \(\mathbb{C}^*\) on \(\mathbb{C}^3\).
