On subvarieties with ample normal bundle

We show that a pseudoeffective R-divisor has numerical dimension 0 if it is numerically trivial on a subvariety with ample normal bundle. This implies that the cycle class of a curve with ample

Grothendieck–Lefschetz for ample subvarieties

We establish a Grothendieck--Lefschetz theorem for smooth ample subvarieties of smooth projective varieties over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero and, more generally, for smooth

Extending rationally connected fibrations from ample subvarieties

Using deformation theory of rational curves, we prove a conjecture of Sommese on the extendability of morphisms from ample subvarieties when the morphism is a smooth (or mildly singular) fibration


Abstract In this note we study properties of partially ample line bundles on simplicial projective toric varieties. We prove that the cone of q-ample line bundles is a union of rational polyhedral

Subvarieties with q-ample normal bundle and q-ample subvarieties

The goal of this article is twofold. On one hand, we study the subvarieties of projective varieties which possess partially ample normal bundle; we prove that they are G2 in the ambient space. This

The goal of this article is to define partially ample subvarieties of projective varieties, generalizing Ottem’s work on ample subvarieties, and also to show their ubiquity. As an application, we

Positive cones of dual cycle classes

We study generalizations for higher codimension cycles of several well-known definitions of the nef cone of divisors on a projective variety. These generalizations fix some of the pathologies

On partially ample divisors

Partially ample divisors are defined by relaxing the different conditions that characterize the ample divisors. We prove that for nef and big divisors such notions coincide. We also prove that the

About the cohomological dimension of certain stratified varieties

We determine an upper bound for the cohomological dimension of the complement of a closed subset in a projective variety which possesses an appropriate stratification. We apply the result to several

Partially ample line bundles and base loci

We generalize some results of A.J. Sommese, B. Totaro and M.V. Brown, providing some geometric interpretations of the notion of partial ampleness.



Local cohomological dimension of algebraic varieties

If X is a smooth scheme of characteristic zero and Yc X is a closed subset, we find topological conditions on the singularities of Y which determine the best possible vanishing theorem for the

Curves in Grassmann varieties

The following question was the main motivation of this paper : which are the necessary and sufficient conditions for a non-singular subvariety of a Grassmann variety to have an ample normal bundle.

The ² ∂-method, weak Lefschetz theorems, and the topology of Kähler manifolds

In [No], Nori studied the fundamental group of complements of nodal curves with ample normal bundle in smooth projective surfaces. The main tool was the following weak Lefschetz theorem: Theorem

Let X be a projective Gorenstein variety, Y ⊂ X a proper closed subscheme such that X is smooth at all points of Y, so that the formal completion of X along Y is regular.

Line bundles with partially vanishing cohomology

Define a line bundle L on a projective variety to be q-ample, for a natural number q, if tensoring with high powers of L kills coherent sheaf cohomology above dimension q. Thus 0-ampleness is the

Asymptotic cohomology vanishing and a converse to the Andreotti-Grauert theorem on surfaces

In this paper, we study relations between positivity of the curvature and the asymptotic behavior of the higher cohomology group for tensor powers of a holomorphic line bundle. The Andreotti-Grauert


One of the most fundamental facts of algebraic geometry is the possibility of characterizing ampleness of line bundles by numerical criteria (Nakai-Moishezon, Kleiman-Seshadri,. . .), or by

On the Fibres of Blowing Up

Let R be a Cohen-Macaulay ring and let M be its maximal ideal. Let 7 be a radical ideal of height r. Let X (= proj ΣI n ) -> Spec R be the "blow up" of the ideal I.

Normal bundle to curves in quadrics

— In this paper we prove that the normal bundle to a nonsingular quadric is ample if and only if C is not a straight line. We give also applications to rational formal functions and therefore to the
