We show that any Fano fivefold with canonical Gorenstein singularities has an effective anticanonical divisor. Moreover, if a general element of the anticanonical system is reduced, then it has canonical singularities.

Singularities of pluri-fundamental divisors on Gorenstein Fano varieties of coindex $4$
. Let X be a Gorenstein canonical Fano variety of coindex 4 and dimension n with H fundamental divisor. Assume h 0 ( X, H ) ≥ n − 2. We prove that a general element of the linear system | mH | has at
High rank torus actions on contact manifolds
We prove LeBrun–Salamon conjecture in the following situation: if X is a contact Fano manifold of dimension $$2n+1$$ 2 n + 1 whose group of automorphisms is reductive of rank $$\ge \max (2,(n-3)/2)$$
Let X be a complex projective manifold, L an ample line bundle on X, and assume that we have a ℂ* action on (X;L). We classify such triples (X; L;ℂ*) for which the closure of a general orbit of the
Adjunction for varieties with $\mathbb{C}^*$ action
Let $X$ be a complex projective manifold, $L$ an ample line bundle on $X$ and $H=\mathbb{C}^*$ an algebraic torus acting on $(X,L)$. We classify such triples $(X,L,H)$ for which the closure of a
Laurent polynomials in Mirror Symmetry: why and how?
We survey the approach to mirror symmetry via Laurent polynomials, outlining some of the main conjectures, problems, and questions related to the subject. We discuss: how to construct Landau–Ginzburg


Fundamental divisors on Fano varieties of index n − 3
Let X be a Fano manifold of dimension n and index n − 3. Kawamata proved the non vanishing of the global sections of the fundamental divisor in the case n = 4. Moreover he proved that if Y is a
On generic nefness of tangent sheaves
We show that the tangent bundle of a projective manifold with nef anticanonical class is generically nef. That is, its restriction to a curve cut out by general sufficiently ample divisors is a nef
Ladders on Fano varieties
We prove the existence of ladders on log Fano varieties of coindex less than 4, as an application of adjunction and nonvanishing.
Existence of good divisors on Mukai varieties
A Mukai variety is a Fano n-fold of index n-2. In this paper we study the fundamental divisor of a Mukai variety with at worst log terminal singularities. The main result is a complete classification
I will talk about termination of flips in dimension 4 following AHacon-Kawamata and the work of Shokurov since then.
Semistable sheaves in positive characteristic
We prove Maruyama’s conjecture on the boundedness of slope semistable sheaves on a projective variety defined over a noetherian ring. Our approach also gives a new proof of the boundedness for
On a conjecture of Beltrametti and Sommese
Let X be a projective manifold of dimension n. Beltrametti and Sommese conjectured that if A is an ample divisor such that $K_X+(n-1)A$ is nef, then $K_X+(n-1)A$ has non-zero global sections. We
Existence of minimal models for varieties of log general type
Assuming finite generation in dimension n − 1, we prove that pl-flips exist in dimension n.
Fundamental Theorems for the Log Minimal Model Program
In this paper, we prove the cone theorem and the contraction theorem for pairs (X;B), where X is a normal variety and B is an effective R-divisor on X such that KX +B is R-Cartier.
