### Compactification of the moduli space of Kähler manifolds with negative constant scalar curvatures

Moishezon compactification is very important in the study of the moduli space of varieties which admit canonical metrics. Moishezon showed that any non-projective Moishezon manifold $X$, after a ...

### A compactification of the non-negative rationals with the discrete topology

Let $S$ be the set of non-negative rational numbers. (If it makes any difference, feel free to take the non-negative dyadic rationals instead.) Let $B=\ell_\infty(S)$; as a ${\rm C}^*$-algebra this is ...

### Equivariant form of Nagata's compactification theorem?

Given a finite group $G$ acting on an algebraic variety $X$ (let's say over $\mathbb C$, if that helps), is there always a proper variety $\bar X$ with a $G$ action such that $X \to \bar X$ is a $G$-...
