### Sufficient condition for pair of real quadrics to have real intersection

In the following, when I talk about the zero of a homogeneous polynomial I always mean a projective zero. Let $q$ be a real quadric. Then $q$ has a real zero if and only if $q$ has indefinite ...

### Is there some relations between derived category and intersection theory?

After learning the traditional intersection theory (W. Fulton's Intersection Theory and D. Eisenbud & J. Harris's 3264 and all that), I have some biased thinking about what I have learned in this ...

### Is $K_F\cdot C\leq K_X\cdot C$ for a fibre $F\subseteq X$ containing the curve $C$?

This is a question that I originally posted on Math Stack Exchange. After a couple of days I have not received any comments or answers, and after thinking about it more I realize that this question is ...

### Intersection of two modules (and sub-modules) under tensors

I have a (hopefully quick) question regarding an intersection of two tensor modules. Let $K$ be a field and $A, B$ finitely-generated modules over the Laurent series $K((X))$. Let $\tilde{A}$ be a (...

### Finite flat pullback of the diagonal

Let $X, Y$ be smooth projective connected complex varieties of the same pure dimension $d$ and $f : X\to Y$ a finite flat surjective morphism. Let $\Delta_X$ be the closed subscheme of $X\times X$ ...

### How to calculate the divisor given by closure of subscheme

Let $X \subset \mathbb{P}^N$ be a nonsingular projective variety over algebraically closed field which is embedded by very ample line bundle $\mathcal{L}$. Let $Y = \mathbb{P}(\mathcal{L}^{\oplus 3})$...

### Varieties connected by curves in projective spaces of small dimension

Let $X\subset\mathbb{P}^N$ be an irreducible complex variety. Fix an integer $a\geq 2$ and call $P_a$ the following property: given $x_1,\dots,x_a\in X$ general points there exists an irreducible ...

### Intersecton form of complete smooth Toric surface

Given a complete smooth Toric surface (over $\mathbb C$), is its intersection form well-known? Or is there an algorithm to calculate it? Thanks in advance.

### Algebraic and homological equivalence relations for $0$-cycles

Let $X$ be a connected smooth projective variety. Let $Z_0(X)_{alg}$ be the group of $0$-cycles algebraically equivalent to $0$ and $Z_0(X)_{\hom}$ be the group of $0$-cycles homologically equivalent ...

### Cycle of non-equidimensional scheme

In Fulton's intersection theory, example 1.7.1, he mentioned an example that contradicts to the splitting of cycles with respect to irreducible components. Consider the subscheme $X$ in $\mathbb{A}^3$ ...

### Algebraic K-theory and intersection theory (Bloch's formula)

It seems to be a well known fact that algebraic K-theory can be used to understand intersection theory, at least for varieties (or stacks!) over a field. A first glimpse of this result seems to be ...
