### Singularities arising from the Minimal Model Program (an algebraic point of view)

I will start the story by the end:
Is there some characterization of (some of) the singularities arising from the Minimal Model Program (canonical, terminal, log-...) in terms of commutative algebra ...

### Are conical symplectic resolutions Mori dream spaces?

This is one of these questions where it's tempting to just leave it at the title, but let me try to define the objects in question.
A conical symplectic resolution is a projective resolution of ...

### Some examples where the plurigenera are nonconstant, when the fibres have worse singularities than canonical

Let start with a definition
Invariance of plurigenera: Choose $m$ large enough so that $mK_F$ has a non-zero global section for some fibre $F$. For any fibre $F$, we have $K_F = K_{X/D}~_{|F}$. So ...

### Restriction of the Canonical Divisor $K_X$ to a general fiber

Let $\ f:X\to Z$ be a surjective morphism between two smooth projective varieties with connected fibers $(f_*\mathcal{O}_X=\mathcal{O}_X)$. Let $F$ be a general fiber of $f$ and $\mbox{dim } ...

### local description of $\mathbb{P}^2$-fibrations over $\mathbb{P}^1$

Let $X$ be a rational threefold (over the field of complex numbers) with terminal singularities. It is well-known that $X$ has only finitely many singular points $x_1,x_2, \ldots,x_n$.
To be more ...

### Semistable minimal model of a $K3$-surface and the special fibre

Suppose that $K$ is a $p$-adic field, that is a field of characteristic $0$ whose ring of integers is a complete discrete valuation ring $\mathcal O_K$ and with residue field $k$ (algebraic closed) of ...

### Canonical model of Kontsevich's moduli space

Motivation: Work of Eisenbud, Harris, and Mumford shows that
$M_g$ is of general type when $g≥24$. What about Kontsevich's moduli space?
Let $X$ be a smooth complex projective Calabi-Yau manifold, ...
