### The locus of lines intersecting with another fixed line on a Fano threefold

Let $Y$ be an index $2$, degree $5$, Picard number $1$ Fano threefold, i.e $Y$ is a linear section of Grassmannian $\operatorname{Gr}(2,5)$. Let $\Sigma(Y)$ be the Hilbert scheme of lines on $Y$, it ...

### arithmetic del Pezzo surfaces in comparison with del Pezzo surfaces over a field

A del Pezzo surface is a smooth, 2-dimensional projective variety $X$ with ample anticanonical divisor, i.e. a 2-dimensional Fano variety. I am interested in the arithmetic analogue, a 2-dimensional ...

### Structure of the big cone and Seshadri constant on Fano manifolds

I would like to know something about the following two questions. Given $X$ Fano manifold and $L$ an ample line bundle on $X$, we define \begin{gather} \sigma(L,x):=\sup\{t>0\, :\, \mu^{*}L-tE \,\,...

### Do non-compact Fano manifolds exist?

Suppose $(M,g, \omega)$ is a Kähler manifold with $\text{Ric}(g) = g$, i.e., $M$ is a Fano manifold. Is $M$ necessarily compact? If not, perhaps complete and Fano implies compact? I'd like to build a ... 505 views

### Torsion in the cohomology of Fano varieties of lines

Let $\mathrm{X}$ be a cubic $d$-fold, and $\mathrm{F}(\mathrm{X})$ its Fano variety of lines. Is the integral cohomology of $\mathrm{F}(\mathrm{X})$ torsion-free? For $d=3$ A. Collino (`The ...

### Negative Definite Fano Manifolds

A complex manifold $M$ is said to be Fano if the Chern curvature $2$-form is a positive definite $(1,1)$-form. What happens if the Chern curvature $2$-form is a negative definite $(1,1)$-form? What ...

### Quotient of a Fano variety by a torus

We work over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero. Let $X$ be a Fano variety, and $T\cong \mathbb{G}_m^r$ a torus acting faithfully on $X$. I think we can canonically linearize the ...

### How to check that exceptional sequence of vector bundles on Fano variety is helix foundation

Let $X$ be smooth Fano variety with $\operatorname{Pic}(X) = \mathbb{Z}$ of dimension $m$ with canonical class $K$, and $E_0,...,E_n$ is exceptional sequence of $(n+1)$ vector bundles in $D^b(Coh(X))$....

### Can free rational curves lift to ramified covers of Fano varieties?

Does there exist $X$ a smooth Fano manifold, $f: Y \to X$ a nontrivial ramified finite cover, $C \subseteq X$ a smooth very free rational curve, such that $f$ is étale over a neighborhood of $C$? ...

### Is the action of braid group on the set of full exceptional collections always transitive?

Let $X$ be a smooth complex projective variety and let $D^b(X)$ be the bounded derived category of coherent sheaves on $X$. Then the braid group on $\mathrm{dim}\:K_0(X)$ strands acts by mutations on ... 186 views

### Cohomology of the Hilbert square of a degree 14 K3 surface [Beauville-Donagi]

I have a question about the article by Beauville-Donagi called La variété des droites d'une hypersurface cubique de dimension 4 (C. R. Acad. Sc. Paris, t. 301, Série I, n° 14, 1985). Their ...

### Derived Category of the Fano 4fold variety of lines

Let $X\subset P^5$ be a smooth cubic fourfold. It is well known that its variety of lines $F(X)$ is a smooth fourfold Fano variety. Hence its derived category should have a semi-orthogonal ...

### Mirror of the autoequivalences of the derived category of del Pezzo surface?

One version of the homological mirror symmetry conjecture states that for every Fano variety $X$ there exists a Landau--Ginzburg model $W$ such that the category of B-branes on $X$ (i.e. the bounded ... 1 vote
