Abstract: Let $ {Q_{m,n}}$ be the space of $ m$-tuples of $ n \times n$-matrices modulo the simultaneous conjugation action of $ PG{L_n}$. Let $ {Q_{m,n}}(\tau)$ be the set of points of $ {Q_{m,n}}$ of representation type $ \tau$. We show that for $ m \geq n + 1$ the group $ \operatorname{Aut}({Q_{m,n}})$ of representation type preserving algebraic automorphisms of $ {Q_{m,n}}$ acts transitively on each $ {Q_{m,n}}(\tau)$. Moreover, the action of $ \operatorname{Aut}({Q_{m,n}})$ on the Zariski open subset $ {Q_{m,n}}(1,n)$ of $ {Q_{m,n}}$ is $ s$-transitive for every positive integer $ s$. We also prove slightly weaker analogues of these results for all $ m \geq 3$.
