Non-existence of negative curves

  title={Non-existence of negative curves},
  author={Javier Gonz'alez-Anaya and J. L. Gonz'alez and Kalle Karu},
Let X be a projective toric surface of Picard number one blown up at a general point. We bring an infinite family of examples of such Xwhose Kleiman-Mori cone of curves is not closed: there is no negative curve generating one of the two boundary rays of the cone. These examples are related to Nagata’s conjecture and rationality of Seshadri constants.

Some necessary and sufficient condition for finite generation of symbolic Rees rings
. Consider the blow-up Y of a weighted projective plane at a point in the open orbit over a field of characteristic 0. We assume that there exists a curve C on Y such that C 2 < 0 and C.E = 1, where E


The geography of negative curves
We study the Mori Dream Space (MDS) property for blowups of weighted projective planes at a general point and, more generally, blowups of toric surfaces defined by a rational plane triangle. The

Asymptotic regularity of powers of ideals of points in a weighted projective plane
In this paper we study the asymptotic behavior of the regularity of symbolic powers of ideals of points in a weighted projective plane. By a result of Cutkosky, Ein and Lazarsfeld, regularity of such
A primer on Seshadri constants
Seshadri constants express the so called local positivity of a line bundle on a projective variety. They were introduced by Demailly. The original idea of using them towards a proof of the Fujita
Mori dream spaces and blow-ups
The goal of the present article is to survey the general theory of Mori Dream Spaces, with special regards to the question: When is the blow-up of toric variety at a general point a Mori Dream Space?
Mori dream spaces and GIT.
The main goal of this paper is to study varieties with the best possible Mori theoretic properties (measured by the existence of a certain decomposition of the cone of effective divisors). We call
