### Inverse image Weil divisor on a toric variety as a Cartier divisor

Let $X$ be a normal toric variety over an algebraically closed field and let $D$ be a torus invariant (prime) divisor. Assume $\pi\colon \tilde{X}\rightarrow X$ is a toric resolution of singularities ...

### Are maps into a smooth curve equivalent to relative effective Cartier divisors?

Let $X$ be a smooth curve and $S$ an affine scheme, both over an algebraically closed field $k$. Given a morphism $f : S \to X$, is it true that the graph morphism $\Gamma_f : S \to X \times S$ is a ...

### Mori cones and projective morphisms

Let $f:X\rightarrow Y$ be a morphism of smooth projective varieties, and $NE(X),NE(Y)$ the Mori cones of curves of $X$ and $Y$. Assume that $NE(X)$ is finitely generated. Then is $NE(Y)$ finitely ...

### Differential of a specific morphism to a Grassmannian

This is a problem that's been bugging me for some time, and therefore I've decided to ask it here. Let $X$ be a smooth projective (irreducible) variety over an algebraically closed field of ...

### Definition of canonical pair

Let $(X,D)$ be a pair and $f:Y\rightarrow X$ a log resolution. Write $$K_Y + \widetilde{D} = f^{*}(K_X) + \sum_{i}a_iE_i$$ where $\widetilde{D}$ is the strict transform of $D$. I found the following ...

### Volume of conic bundles

Consider a smooth conic bundle $X\rightarrow \mathbb{P}^1$ with discriminant of degree $d$ (the locus of $\mathbb{P}^1$ over which the fibers are reducible conics). There is a formula for $(-K_X)^2$ ...

### Existence of terminal $3$-fold flips

Does there exist a terminal $3$-fold $X$ with a curve $C\subset X$ such that $K_X\cdot C < 0$ admitting a Mori flip $X\dashrightarrow Y$, flipping $C$ to a curve $C'\subset Y$, where the singular ...

### Cohomology of divisors on Hirzebruch surfaces

Consider the Hirzebruch surface $\mathbb{F}_n = \mathbb{P}(\mathcal{O}_{\mathbb{P}^1}\oplus \mathcal{O}_{\mathbb{P}^1}(n))\rightarrow\mathbb{P}^1$. The Picard group of $\mathbb{F}_n$ is generated by ... 294 views

### Abelian varieties corresponding to Hodge substructures

In an exercise of Voisin book, says: Let $j:C\rightarrow S$ the inclusion of a smooth curve on a smooth connected projective surface. Set $H=ker(j_*:H^1(C,\mathbb{Z})\rightarrow H^3(S,\mathbb{Z}))$. ...

Let $X$ be a smooth projective variety of Picard rank two. Assume that there exists a surface $S\subset X$ such that $$i^{*}:\text{Pic}(X)\rightarrow\text{Pic}(S)$$ is an isomorphism, where $i:S\... 2 votes 1 answer 350 views ### Divisors on projective bundles Let$\pi:X = \mathbb{P}(\mathcal{E})\rightarrow\mathbb{P}^n$be a projective bundle, where$\mathcal{E}$is a rank two vector bundle over$\mathbb{P}^n$. If$n = 0$then$X = \mathbb{P}^1$, and for$n ...
Let $f:X\rightarrow Y$ be a flat morphism of smooth projective varieties, and $\mathcal{L}$ an effective and ample line bundle on $Y$. For a divisor $A\in H^0(Y,\mathcal{L})$ set $X_A := f^{-1}(A)$. ...
