## Delta-invariants for Fano varieties with large automorphism groups

Cornell University

2019.

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 symmetries, including spherical Fano varieties. We also consider the case of G being a finite group.

The purpose of this article is to develop techniques for estimating basis log canonical thresholds on logarithmic surfaces. To that end, we develop new local intersection estimates that imply log canonicity. Our main motivation and application is to show the existence of Kahler-Einstein edge metrics on all but finitely many families of asymptotically log del ...

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 ...

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 ...

We obtain an explicit presentation for the equivariant cobordism ring of a complete flag variety. An immediate corollary is a Borel presentation for the ordinary cobordism ring. Another application is an equivariant Schubert calculus in cobordism. We also describe the rational equivariant cobordism rings of wonderful symmetric varieties of minimal rank. ...

This book collects the proceedings of a series of conferences dedicated to birational geometry of Fano varieties held in Moscow, Shanghai and Pohang
The conferences were focused on the following two related problems:
• existence of Kähler–Einstein metrics on Fano varieties
• degenerations of Fano varieties
on which two famous conjectures were recently proved. The first is the famous ...

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 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 ...

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 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 ...

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 ...

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 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

examples of Fano 3-folds with “many” symmetries. ...

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 ...
