  • We construct some positive entropy automorphisms of rational surfaces with no periodic curves. The surfaces in question, which we term tri-Coble surfaces, are blow-ups of $ \mathbb P^2$ at 12 points which have contractions down to three different Coble surfaces. The automorphisms arise as compositions of lifts of Bertini involutions from certain degree $1$ weak del Pezzo surfaces.

According to Lemma 2.6, this is possible only if $ S $ is tangent to a conic surface, which means that $ S_{ \mathbf p \mathbf q} $ is a Coble surface
