Let $Q$ denote the Quot scheme that parametrizes all the torsion quotients of ${\mathcal O}^{\oplus r}_X$ of degree $d$, where $X$ is a compact Riemann surface. The group $\text{PGL}(r, {\mathbb C})$ acts faithfully on $Q$ via the standard action of $\text{GL}(r, {\mathbb C})$ on ${\mathcal O}^{\oplus r}_X$. We prove that $\text{PGL}(r, {\mathbb C})$ is the connected component, containing the identity element, of $\text{Aut}(Q)$. As an application, we prove that the isomorphism class of $Q$ uniquely determines the isomorphism class of the Riemann surface $X$. This is a joint work with A. Dhillon and J. Hurtubise.
