### Resolution of singularities in étale cohomology

The lack of a suitable resolution of singularities comes up often in work on étale cohomology from the 1960s and 70s, And I think even the latest version of Milne's lecture notes says "It is likely ...

### Schubert varieties which admit small resolutions of singularities

I am looking for an (incomplete) list of partial flag varieties for which all Schubert cells admit small resolutions of singularities. This is interesting, for many reasons. My motivation is, that a ...

### Can we foliate the punctured space by tori?

Is it possible to have a 2 dimensional foliation of $\mathbb{R}^{3}-\{0\}$ such that each leaf is homeomorphic to the torus? what algebraic topological obstruction exist? Another question: is there ...

### Bertini's Theorem

Let $p_1,...,p_n\in\mathbb{P}^{N}$ be general points. Consider the linear system $|L|$ of hypersurfaces of degree $d$ in $\mathbb{P}^{N}$ with prescribed multiplicities $m_1,...,m_n$ at $p_1,...,p_n$. ...

### Cohomology of tangent sheaf of a singular hypersurface

Let $X\subset\mathbb{P}^n$ be a hypersurface singular at finitely many points $p_i\in X$. We may assume that $X$ has ordinary singularities at the $p_i$'s. Does there exists a formula, perhaps in ...

### How can one show that orbit closures in representations of a linear quiver don't have small resolutions?

Let $1\to \cdots\to n$ be a linear quiver of length $n$. Let $\mathbf{d}=(d_1,\dots,d_n)$ be a dimension vector. It's well known (for example, by Gabriel's theorem, but also by basic linear algebra) ...

### Crepant resolutions of ODP's on a 3-fold

It seems to be a well-known fact that if we have a 3-fold $X$ with only ODP singularities (ordinary double point) and a smooth Weil divisor $E$ passing through them, then by blowing-up $X$ along $E$ ...

### Do fixed point sets in equivariant crepant resolutions have the same cohomology? How about for the specific case of Nakajima quiver varieties?

A crepant resolution $f:Y\to X$ is a resolution of singularities with $f^*(K_X)=K_Y$. Crepant resolutions do not always exist, and when they exist they may not be unique. However, different crepant ...

### Hodge numbers of a Calabi-Yau 3-fold via deformation theory

In their paper "Calabi-Yau 3-folds and Moduli of Abelian Surfaces I", Gross and Popescu calculate the hodge numbers of smooth CY 3-folds obtained in the following way (see Remark 4.11 of their paper): ...
A little bit of motivation (the question starts below the line): I am studying a proper, generically finite map of varieties $X \to Y$, with $X$ and $Y$ smooth. Since the map is proper, we can use the ...
