A log Calabi–Yau pair consists of a proper variety X and a divisor D on it such that $$K_X+D$$KX+D is numerically trivial. A folklore conjecture predicts that the dual complex of D is homeomorphic to the quotient of a sphere by a finite group. The main result of the paper shows that the fundamental group of the dual complex of D is a quotient of the fundamental group of the smooth locus of X, hence its pro-finite completion is finite. This leads to a positive answer in dimension $$\le $$≤4. We… Expand
The dual complex of log Calabi–Yau pairs on Mori fibre spaces
In this paper we show that the dual complex of a dlt log Calabi-Yau pair $(Y, \Delta)$ on a Mori fibre space $\pi: Y \to Z$ is a finite quotient of a sphere, provided that either the Picard number ofExpand
Combinatorial degenerations of surfaces and Calabi--Yau threefolds
In this article we study combinatorial degenerations of minimal surfaces of Kodaira dimension 0 over local fields, and in particular show that the `type' of the degeneration can be read off from theExpand
Intrinsic Mirror Symmetry
We associate a ring R to a log Calabi-Yau pair (X,D) or a degeneration of Calabi-Yau manifolds X->B. The vector space underlying R is determined by the tropicalization of (X,D) or X->B, while theExpand
Theta functions on varieties with effective anti-canonical class
We show that a large class of maximally degenerating families of n-dimensional polarized varieties come with a canonical basis of sections of powers of the ample line bundle. The families consideredExpand
Motivic zeta functions of degenerating Calabi–Yau varieties
We study motivic zeta functions of degenerating families of Calabi–Yau varieties. Our main result says that they satisfy an analog of Igusa’s monodromy conjecture if the family has a so-called GaloisExpand
Kawamata log terminal singularities of full rank
We study Kawamata log terminal singularities of full rank, i.e., $n$-dimensional klt singularities containing a large finite abelian group of rank $n$ in its regional fundamental group. The mainExpand
On minimal log discrepancies and Kollár components
In this article we prove a local implication of boundedness of Fano varieties. More precisely, we prove that $d$-dimensional $a$-log canonical singularities, with standard coefficients, which admitExpand
Diophantine Analysis on Moduli of Local Systems
We develop a Diophantine analysis on moduli of special linear rank two local systems over surfaces with prescribed boundary traces. We first show that such a moduli space is a log Calabi-Yau varietyExpand
The dual boundary complex of the $SL_2$ character variety of a punctured sphere
Suppose $C_1,\ldots , C_k$ are generic conjugacy classes in $SL_2({\mathbb C})$. Consider the character variety of local systems on ${\mathbb P}^1-\{ y_1,\ldots , y_k\}$ whose monodromyExpand
Remarks on degenerations of hyper-K\"ahler manifolds
Using the Minimal Model Program, any degeneration of K-trivial varieties can be arranged to be in a Kulikov type form, i.e. with trivial relative canonical divisor and mild singularities. In theExpand


Quotients of Calabi–Yau varieties
Let X be a complex Calabi–Yau variety, that is, a complex projective variety with canonical singularities whose canonical class is numerically trivial. Let G be a finite group acting on X andExpand
Étale fundamental groups of Kawamata log terminal spaces, flat sheaves, and quotients of Abelian varieties
Given a quasi-projective variety X with only Kawamata log terminal singularities, we study the obstructions to extending finite \'etale covers from the smooth locus $X_{\mathrm{reg}}$ of $X$ to $X$Expand
Families of rationally connected varieties
Recall that a proper variety X is said to be rationally connected if two general points p, q ∈ X are contained in the image of a map g : P → X. This is clearly a birationally invariant property. WhenExpand
Existence of log canonical closures

Existence of log canonical flips and a special LMMP
Let (X/Z,B+A) be a Q-factorial dlt pair where B,A≥0 are Q-divisors and KX+B+A∼Q0/Z. We prove that any LMMP/Z on KX+B with scaling of an ample/Z divisor terminates with a good log minimal model or aExpand
The dual complex of singularities
The dual complex of a singularity is defined, up-to homotopy, using resolutions of singularities. In many cases, for instance for isolated singularities, we identify and study a "minimal"Expand
