The Milnor fibre of a Q-Gorenstein smoothing of a Wahl singularity is a rational homology ball B_{p,q}. For a canonically polarised surface of general type X, it is known that there are bounds on the number p for which B_{p,q} admits a symplectic embedding into X. In this paper, we give a recipe to construct unbounded sequences of symplectically embedded B_{p,q} into surfaces of general type equipped with non-canonical symplectic forms. Ultimately, these symplectic embeddings come from Mori's… CONTINUE READING
