Weighted projective space, its varieties, the universal hyperplane section description and the Segre embedding

We will view here the weighted projective space as an orbifold. Let $S=k[x_0,...,x_n]$ be a positively graded ring (I don't assume $S$ to be finitely generated in degree 1). To the grading ...

How to specify a finite group up to inner automorphism?

I want some finite set of data to which I can canoically associate a "group up to inner automorphism", and which can be constructed canoically from a "group up to inner automorphism". I have a few ...

Enumerativity of Gromov-Witten invariants of orbifolds

For smooth Deligne-Mumford stacks, there is a well-defined Gromov-Witten theory, see http://arxiv.org/pdf/math/0103156.pdf and http://arxiv.org/pdf/math/0603151.pdf. Is there some sense, or some ...

Can stabilizer groups in an orbifold have global twisting?

Can stabilizer groups in an orbifold have global twisting? For example, consider the two groups $\mathbb Z/3\times\mathbb Z$ and $\mathbb Z/3\rtimes\mathbb Z$ (where $\mathbb ...

Homotopy theory of topological stacks/orbifolds

Motivation $\newcommand{\T}{\mathscr{T}}$ I have many times found myself saying some variant of the following. Let $\T_g$ be the Teichm├╝ller space of a surface of genus $g$, and $\Gamma_g$ its ...

how to construct a $C^\infty$ stack from a holomorphic stack

Given a complex manifold, you can `weaken' its structure to give a smooth manifold. Is there an analogous construction that constructs a stack over the category of smooth manifolds from a stack over ...

Ramification formula for orbifolds

It's well known for smooth curves that if $\pi:X\to Y$ is a finite map, $K_X=\pi^*K_Y+Ram(\pi)$, this is just the Riemann-Hurwitz formula at the level of line bundles. I've been told that this ...

When do maps of ineffective orbifolds descend to their effective part?

If $$f:\mathscr{X} \to \mathscr{Y}$$ is a map between (possibly ineffective) orbifolds (in the sense of differentiable stacks, or orbifold groupoids), does it follow that $f$ induces a map between ...

Intrinsic Characterization of when an orbifold (or more general stack) is effective?

Recall that an orbifold is an etale and proper differentiable stack $X$. Etale means that it admits an etale atlas $M \to X$ from a manifold $M$ (which is to say it is represented by an etale Lie ...

Cotangent bundle of a differentiable stack

If you ever wanted to construct the tangent bundle of a differentiable stack, it's relatively simple: First, if $\mathbf{X}$ is a stack coming from a Lie groupoid $\mathcal{G}$, you could just say ...
