# A Characterization of Some Fano 4-folds Through Conic Fibrations

@article{Montero2018ACO, title={A Characterization of Some Fano 4-folds Through Conic Fibrations}, author={Pedro Montero and Eleonora A. Romano}, journal={International Mathematics Research Notices}, year={2018} }

We find a characterization for Fano 4-folds $X$ with Lefschetz defect $\delta _{X}=3$: besides the product of two del Pezzo surfaces, they correspond to varieties admitting a conic bundle structure $f\colon X\to Y$ with $\rho _{X}-\rho _{Y}=3$. Moreover, we observe that all of these varieties are rational. We give the list of all possible targets of such contractions. Combining our results with the classification of toric Fano $4$-folds due to Batyrev and Sato we provide explicit examples of…

Let $X$ be a smooth Fano fourfold admitting a conic bundle structure. We show that $X$ is toric if and only if $X$ admits an amplified endomorphism; in this case, $X$ is a rational variety.
