We study elements $\tau$ of order two in the birational automorphism groups of rationally connected three-dimensional algebraic varieties such that there exists a non-uniruled divisorial component of the $\tau$-fixed point locus. Using the equivariant minimal model program, we give a rough classification of such elements. ...

We classify Fano threefolds with only terminal singularities whose canonical class is
Cartier and divisible by 2 with the additional assumption that the G-invariant part of the Weil divisor
class group is of rank 1 with respect to an action of some group G. In particular, we find a lot of
examples of Fano 3-folds with “many” symmetries. ...

We address the following question: When an affine cone over a smooth Fano threefold admits an effective action of the additive group? In this paper we deal with Fano threefolds of index 1 and Picard number 1. Our approach is based on a geometric criterion from our previous paper, which relates the existence of an ...

We find a relation between a cubic hypersurface Y and its Fano variety of lines F(Y) in the Grothendieck ring of varieties. We prove that if the class of an affine line is not a zero-divisor in the Grothendieck ring of varieties, then Fano variety of lines on a smooth rational cubic fourfold is birational ...

We prove that if a smooth variety with non-positive canonical class can be embedded into a weighted projective space of dimension n as a well formed complete intersection and it is not an intersection with a linear cone therein, then the weights of the weighted projective space do not exceed n+1. Based on this bound ...

We construct four different families of smooth Fano fourfolds with Picard rank 1, which contain cylinders, i.e., Zariski open subsets of the form Z ×A1, where Z is a quasiprojective variety. The affine cones over such a fourfold admit effective Ga-actions. Similar constructions of cylindrical Fano threefolds were done previously in the papers by Kishimoto ...

We study a wide class of affine varieties, which we call affine Fano varieties. By analogy with birationally super-rigid Fano varieties, we define super-rigidity for affine Fano varieties, and provide many examples and non-examples of super-rigid affine Fano varieties. ...

Consider a family of Fano varieties π:X⟶B∋o over a curve germ with a smooth total space X. Assume that the generic fiber is smooth and the special fiber F=π^{−1}(o) has simple normal crossings. Then F is called a semistable degeneration of Fano varieties. We show that the dual complex of F is a simplex of dimension ≤dim F. Simplices of any admissible dimension can be realized ...

Consider a Laurent polynomial with real positive coefficients such that the origin is strictly inside its Newton polytope. Then it is strongly convex as a function of real positive argument. So it has a distinguished Morse critical point --- the unique critical point with real positive coordinates. As a consequence we obtain a positive answer ...

We propose Gamma Conjectures for Fano manifolds which can be thought of as a square root of the index theorem. Studying the exponential asymptotics of solutions to the quantum differential equation, we associate a principal asymptotic class A_F to a Fano manifold F. We say that F satisfies Gamma Conjecture I if A_F equals the ...

In this paper we prove that for n-dimensional smooth l-Fano well formed weighted complete intersections, which is not isomorphic to a usual projective space, the upper bound for l is equal to ⌈log2(n+2)⌉−1. We also prove that the only l-Fano of dimension n among such manifolds with inequalities ⌈log3(n+2)⌉⩽l⩽⌈log2(n+2)⌉−1 is a complete intersection of quadrics in a usual projective space. ...

Given a Laurent polynomial f, one can form the period of f: this is a function of one complex variable that plays an important role in mirror symmetry for Fano manifolds. Mutations are a particular class of birational transformations acting on Laurent polynomials in two variables; they preserve the period and are closely connected with ...

For a polarized variety (X,L) and a closed connected subgroup G⊂Aut(X,L) we define a G-invariant version of the δ-threshold. We prove that for a Fano variety (X,−KX) and a connected subgroup G⊂Aut(X) this invariant characterizes G-equivariant uniform K-stability. We also use this invariant to investigate G-equivariant K-stability of some Fano varieties with large groups of ...

We discuss various results on Hilbert schemes of lines and conics and automorphism groups of smooth Fano threefolds of Picard rank 1. Besides a general review of facts well known to experts, the paper contains some new results, for instance, we give a description of the Hilbert scheme of conics on any smooth Fano threefold ...

It is known that the moduli space of smooth Fano–Mukai fourfolds V18 of genus 10 has dimension one. We show that any such fourfold is a completion of ℂ4 in two different ways. Up to isomorphism, there is a unique fourfold Vs18 acted upon by SL2(ℂ). The group Open image in new window is a ...
