Non-existence of negative curves

  title={Non-existence of negative curves},
  author={Javier Gonz'alez-Anaya and Jos'e Luis 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.

Constructing non-Mori Dream Spaces from negative curves
We study blowups of weighted projective planes at a general point, and more generally blowups of toric surfaces of Picard number one. Based on the positive characteristic methods of Kurano and
On a family of negative curves
Let $X$ be the blowup of a weighted projective plane at a general point. We study the problem of finite generation of the Cox ring of $X$. Generalizing examples of Srinivasan and Kurano-Nishida, we
Rationality of Seshadri constants and the Segre–Harbourne–Gimigliano–Hirschowitz conjecture
Abstract In this paper we relate the SHGH Conjecture to the rationality of one-point Seshadri constants on blow ups of the projective plane.
Single point Seshadri constants on rational surfaces
Motivated by a similar result of Dumnicki, K\"uronya, Maclean and Szemberg under a slightly stronger hypothesis, we exhibit irrational single-point Seshadri constants on a rational surface $X$
On finite generation of symbolic Rees rings of space monomial curves and existence of negative curves
Abstract In this paper, we shall study finite generation of symbolic Rees rings of the defining ideal of the space monomial curves ( t a , t b , t c ) for pairwise coprime integers a, b, c such that
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
