Title:Families of simple subgroups in the Cremona group arising from del Pezzo fibrations

Cremona group of rank n is the group of birational self-maps of the projective space of dimension n. For any subgroup G of Cremona group there is a rational variety on which G acts regularly. This allows to translate the study of subgroups of Cremona group into the study of G-equivariant geometry of rational varieties. In this talk I will describe some continuous families of rational threefolds with an action of alternating group of rank 5. I will also explain why the corresponding subgroups of the Cremona group are not pair-wise conjugate.
