Summary: By an additive action on a hypersurface \(H\) in \(\mathbb P^{n+1}\) we mean an effective action of a commutative unipotent group on \(\mathbb P^{n+1}\) which leaves \(H\) invariant and acts on \(H\) with an open orbit. B. Hassett and Y. Tschinkel [Int. Math. Res. Not. 1999, No. 22, 1211–1230 (1999; Zbl 0966.14033)] have shown that actions of commutative unipotent groups on projective spaces can be described in terms of local algebras with some additional data. We prove that additive actions on projective hypersurfaces correspond to invariant multilinear symmetric forms on local algebras. It allows us to obtain explicit classification results for non-degenerate quadrics and quadrics of corank one.
