On a class of algebraic surfaces with numerically effective cotangent bundles
In this dissertation, we will present two new results in complex geometry. The first one is for a borderline class of surfaces with nef cotangent bundle. The statement of the main theorem on this
A brief survey of K3 surfaces
This monograph gives a view, from both differential and algebraic geometry, of K3 surfaces. First we build-up to the Riemann–Roch theorem on K3 surfaces, the statement of which needs several powerful
Negative curves on algebraic surfaces
We study curves of negative self-intersection on algebraic surfaces. Our main result shows there exist smooth complex projective surfaces X, related to Hilbert modular surfaces, such that X contains
Integrable systems and projective images of Kummer surfaces
The (-1 )-involution on the Jacobian Jr of an arbitrary Riemann surface r of genus two leads to a singular surface, the Kummer surface Icr of Jr, which, after desingularization, defines a X-3 surface
Arrangements of curves and algebraic surfaces
We prove a strong relation between Chern and log Chern invariants of algebraic surfaces. For a given arrangement of curves, we find nonsingular projective surfaces with Chern ratio arbitrarily close
Product-Quotient Surfaces: new invariants and algorithms
In this article we suggest a new approach to the systematic, computer-aided construction and to the classification of product-quotient surfaces, introducing a new invariant, the integer gamma, which
Nef cones of Hilbert schemes of points on surfaces
Let X be a smooth projective surface of irregularity 0. The Hilbert scheme of n points on X parameterizes zero-dimensional subschemes of X of length n. In this paper, we discuss general methods for
Special systems through double points on an algebraic surface
Let S be a smooth projective algebraic surface satisfying the following property: H i (S, B) = 0 for i > 0, for any irreducible and reduced curve B of S. The aim of this paper is to provide a
Example 1.2 (K3 surfaces of degrees 4, 6, and 8). Let X be a smooth complete intersection of type (d1, . . . , dr) in Pk , i.e., X ⊆ P has codimension r and X = H1∩· · ·∩Hr, where Hi is a
