Questions on the Hodge Dual of the Kähler Class

Let $M$ be a compact complex surface, i.e., a complex manifold with complex dimension two. Also, let us denote its Kähler metric by $g$ and its Kähler form by $K$. Let us denote the Kähler class by ...

A question on fibered Calabi-Yau threefolds

Let $\phi:X\rightarrow \mathbb{P}^1$ be a fibered Calabi-Yau threefold with a general fiber $F$. The following are known $\phi=\Phi_{mF}$ for some $m\in \mathbb{N}$, where $\Phi_D$ stands for the ...

Moishezon manifolds with vanishing first Chern class

Suppose $M$ is a Moishezon manifold with $c_1(M)=0$ in $H^2(M,\mathbb{R})$. Does it follow that $K_M$ is torsion in $\mathrm{Pic}(M)$? This is true whenever $M$ is Kähler (and therefore ...

Condition on the canonical divisor for Yau Inequality - effective or ample?

Let $X$ be a complex, projective, nonsingular variety. We also understand it as a Kähler Manifold. My question now is, when people say $c_1(X) < 0$, what exactly do they mean? Let me elaborate. In ...

Rational or elliptic curves on Calabi-Yau threefolds

Let $X$ be a Calabi-Yau threefold. From a complex analytic point of view, it is widely believed that it should not be Kobayashi hyperbolic, that is it should always admit some non-constant entire map ...
