### Enriques surfaces over $\mathbb Z$

Does there exist a smooth proper morphism $E \to \operatorname{Spec} \mathbb Z$ whose fibers are Enriques surfaces?
By a theorem of, independently, Fontaine and Abrashkin, combined with the Enriques-...

### Why are solutions to $\sqrt[k]{x_1^k+x_2^k+x_3^k+x_4^k}$ for $k=2,3$ curiously smooth?

Given an integer solution $s_m$ to the system,
$$x_1^2+x_2^2+\dots+x_n^2 = y^2$$
$$x_1^3+x_2^3+\dots+x_n^3 = z^3$$
and define the function,
$$F(s_m) = x_1+x_2+\dots+x_n$$
For $n\geq3$, using an ...

### Am I missing something about this notion of Mirror Symmetry for abelian varieties?

This is a continuation of my recent question: Mirror symmetry for polarized abelian surfaces and Shioda-Inose K3s.
In the comments of the question, I was directed to the paper http://arxiv.org/abs/...

### Torelli-like theorem for K3 surfaces on terms of its étale cohomology

Is there a proof of a Torelli-like Theorem for a K3-surface over any field (non complex) in terms of its etale or crystalline cohomology?
For example: If $K\ne \mathbb{C} $ and $X\rightarrow \...

### Mirror symmetry for polarized abelian surfaces and Shioda-Inose K3s

It is well known (cf. Dolgachev) that there is a beautiful notion of mirror symmetry for lattice-polarized K3 surfaces. That is, if we are given a rank $r$ lattice $M$ of signature $(1, r - 1)$ and a ...

### Possible automorphism groups of a K3 surface

Which finite groups are automorphism groups of polarized K3 surfaces (let's say over ℂ)?
...and does the answer change is I remove "polarized"?

### Is a Kummer surface over an finite field $\mathbb{F}_q$ supersingular iff $\mathbb{F}_q$-unirational?

Let $A$ be an abelian surface over an finite field $\mathbb{F}_q$. In particular, I am interested in the case when $A$ is a Jacobian variety. Is the Kummer surface $K_A/\mathbb{F}_q$ Shioda-...

### Are all these K3 surfaces supersingular?

Consider all the smooth K3 surfaces given by $X^4+W^2X^2+XW^3 = f(Y,Z,W)$ or $X^4+XW^3 = g(Y,Z,W)$ over $\mathbb F_{2}$ with $f$ or $g$ homogenous of degree 4. There are a lot of choices for $f$ and $...

### Non minimal K3 surfaces as hypersurfaces of weighted projective spaces

I recently learnt that the hypersurface
$$
S:=(x^2+y^3+z^{11}+w^{66}=0) \subset \mathbb{P}(33,22,6,1)
$$
is birational to a K3 surface. This is surprising because the surface is quasi-smooth, well-...
