Effective results in the three-dimensional minimal model program

  title={Effective results in the three-dimensional minimal model program},
  author={Yuri Prokhorov},
We give a brief review on recent developments in the three-dimensional minimal model program. In this note we give a brief review on recent developments in the three-dimensional minimal model program (MMP for short). Certainly, this is not a complete survey of all advances in this area. For example, we do not discuss the minimal models of varieties of non-negative Kodaira dimension, as well as, applications to birational geometry and moduli spaces. The aim of the MMP is to find a good… 



General elephants of three-fold divisorial contractions

The theory of minimal models has enriched the study of higher-dimensional algebraic geometry; see [10] and [12]. For a variety with mild singularities, this theory produces another variety which

Minimal Models of Canonical 3-Folds

§-oo. Abstract This paper introduces a temporary definition of minimal models of 3-folds (0.7), and studies these under extra hypotheses. The main result is Theorem (0.6), in which I characterise the

Elementary contractions of Gorenstein threefolds

In this paper, we show that a generalization of the classification theorem of Mori in [113] can be easily obtained from the contraction theorem of [5]. A fine analysis is made of the contractions of

Divisorial contractions to 3-dimensional terminal singularities with discrepancy one

We study a divisorial contraction … : Y ! X such that … contracts an irreducible divisor E to a point P and that the discrepancy of E is 1 when P 2 X is a 3-dimensional terminal singularity of type

Flipping surfaces

We study semistable extremal threefold neighborhoods following earlier work of Mori, Kollár, and Prokhorov. We classify possible flips and extend Mori’s algorithm for computing flips of extremal

Three-fold divisorial contractions to singularities of higher indices

We complete the explicit study of a three-fold divisorial contraction whose exceptional divisor contracts to a point, by treating the case where the point downstairs is a singularity of index $n \ge

Singularities of linear systems and boundedness of Fano varieties

We study log canonical thresholds (also called global log canonical threshold or $\alpha$-invariant) of $\mathbb{R}$-linear systems. We prove existence of positive lower bounds in different settings,

Fano 3-folds in codimension 4, Tom and Jerry. Part I

Abstract We introduce a strategy based on Kustin–Miller unprojection that allows us to construct many hundreds of Gorenstein codimension 4 ideals with 9×16 resolutions (that is, nine equations and

Normal degenerations of the complex projective plane.

Albeit this investigation is interesting for its own sake, there are also applications to other problems in algebraic geometry. For example, Catanese [Ca] uses normal degenerations of P x P in order
