### Examples of degree zero, rank one reflexive sheaves without r-th roots

Let $X$ be a normal, projective surface (or more generally a variety) over $\mathbb{C}$ (i.e., $X$ is irreducible). Fix a polarisation on $X$. I am looking for examples of rank one, degree zero (...

### Local to global deformation of invertible sheaves

Let $\pi:X \to S$ be a flat, projective morphism, $S$ irreducible. Suppose that for all $s \in S$, the fiber $X_s$ satisfies $h^2(\mathcal{O}_{X_s})=0$. This means in particular that given an ...

### Examples of smooth projective varieties with “nice” Picard group

I am looking for examples of smooth projective varieties $(X,H)$ with $H$ a polarization on $X$, $\dim \mbox{Pic}^0(X)=0$, $\mbox{Pic}(X) \not= \mathbb{Z}$ satisfying the property: for any two line ...

### What can be said about a pullback of a very ample line bundle w.r.t birational maps?

Let $X$ be a smooth projective variety and $\phi: X \to \mathbb P^n$ be a map. If $\phi$ is an embedding then $E=\phi^*(O(1))$ is very ample. But can one say something if $\phi$
is birational (but not ...

### Justification of the term “invertible sheaf”

Let $X$ be a locally ringed space (or a scheme) and $M,N$ two $\mathcal{O}_X$-modules such that $M \otimes N \cong \mathcal{O}_X$. Does it follow that $M$ is invertible in the usual sense, namely that ...
