Non-existence of negative curves
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 curves in blowups of weighted projective planes
We study the Mori dream space property for blowups at a general point of weighted projective planes or, more generally, of toric surfaces with Picard number one. Such a variety is a Mori dream space
Curves generating extremal rays in blowups of weighted projective planes
We consider blowups at a general point of weighted projective planes and, more generally, of toric surfaces with Picard number 1. We give a unifying construction of negative curves on these blowups
On intrinsic negative curves
Let K be an algebraically closed field of characteristic 0. A curve of (K∗)2 arising from a Laurent polynomial in two variables is intrinsic negative if its tropical compactification has negative

Symbolic Rees Algebras
We survey old and new approaches to the study of symbolic powers of ideals. Our focus is on the symbolic Rees algebra of an ideal, viewed both as a tool to investigate its symbolic powers and as a
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


Some non-finitely generated Cox rings
We give a large family of weighted projective planes, blown up at a smooth point, that do not have finitely generated Cox rings. We then use the method of Castravet and Tevelev to prove that the
On blowing up the weighted projective plane
We investigate the blow-up of a weighted projective plane at a general point. We provide criteria and algorithms for testing if the result is a Mori dream surface and we compute the Cox ring in
Infinitely Generated Symbolic Rees Rings of Space Monomial Curves Having Negative Curves
In this paper, we shall study finite generation of symbolic Rees rings of the defining ideal ${\frak p}$ of the space monomial curve $(t^a, t^b, t^c)$ for pairwise coprime integers $a$, $b$, $c$.
On the finite generation of symbolic blow-ups
"symbolic blow-up", (~ P(n)=S a Noetherian ring? If S is Noetherian and dim n 0 RIP=l, Cowsik observed that P must be a set-theoretic complete intersection. If R is not regular, there is no hope in
New Examples and Non-examples of Mori Dream Spaces when Blowing up Toric Surfaces
We study the question of whether the blow-ups of toric surfaces of Picard number one at the identity point of the torus are Mori Dream Spaces. For some of these toric surfaces, the question whether
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
Introduction to toric varieties
The course given during the School and Workshop “The Geometry and Topology of Singularities”, 8-26 January 2007, Cuernavaca, Mexico is based on a previous course given during the 23o Coloquio
Symbolic algebras of monomial primes.
Determination of when symbolic algebras are finitely generated is central to commutative algebra and algebraic geometry. One of the simplest non-trivial classes of examples, which are not divisorial,
