Log-canonical degenerations of del Pezzo surfaces in Q-Gorenstein families
We classify del Pezzo surfaces of Picard number one with log canonical singularities admitting Q-Gorenstein smoothings.
Boundedness of $(\epsilon, n)$-Complements for Surfaces
We show the existence of $(\epsilon,n)$-complements for $(\epsilon,\mathbb{R})$-complementary surface pairs when the coefficients of boundaries belong to a DCC set.

Divisorial contractions in dimension three which contract divisors to smooth points
Abstract.We deal with a divisorial contraction in dimension three which contracts its exceptional divisor to a smooth point. We prove that any such contraction can be obtained by a suitable weighted

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
Minimal Discrepancy for a Terminal cDV Singularity Is 1
An answer to a question raised by Shokurov on the minimal discrepancy of a terminal singularity of index 1 is given. It is proved that the minimal discrepancy is 1 (it is 2 for a non-singular point
Canonical quotient singularities in dimension three
We classify isolated canonical cyclic quotient singularities in dimension three, showing that, with two exceptions, they are all either Gorenstein or terminal. The proof uses the solution of a
