Slovák, Jan (ed.) et al., The proceedings of the 24th winter school “Geometry and physics”, Srní, Czech Republic, January 17–24, 2004. Palermo: Circolo Matemático di Palermo. Supplemento ai Rendiconti del Circolo Matemático di Palermo. Serie II 75, 233-239 (2005).
From the author’s abstract: We show that elementary algebraic techniques lead to surprising results on automorphism groups of Cartan geometries and especially parabolic geometries. The example of three-dimensional CR structures is discussed in detail.
