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

Existence of minimal models for varieties of log general type

Assuming finite generation in dimension n − 1, we prove that pl-flips exist in dimension n.

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
