### On a kind of Hilbert irreducibility theorem

Let us work over a number field $k$. Let $C$ be a non-empty open subscheme of $\mathbb{P}^{1}_{k}$, and $X\to C$ a family of smooth, projective hyperbolic curves such that $X(k)\to C(k)$ is surjective....

### Minimal model vs canonical model of a surface

When I have a projective surface $X$, for simplicity smooth, I can find a simpler smooth surface on its binational class. In this way we find in a finite number of steps the simplest surface $Y$, i.e. ...

### Log Kodaira dimension of Briekorn varities

Is there any formula or estimate of the log-Kodaira dimension of the Brieskorn variety $V_{a_0,\ldots,a_n}:=\{x_0^{a_0}+\ldots + x_n^{a_n}=1\}$ for $2\le a_0\le \ldots \le a_n$. In particular, I ...

### Étale morphism over unirational/uniruled variety

Suppose we have an étale morphism between smooth quasi-projective (complex) varieties $X \rightarrow Y$ and assume that $Y$ is unirational. I am wondering whether we can somehow deduce that $X$ is ...

### Kodaira dimension of symmetric products of curves

What is the Kodaira dimension of symmetric products of curves? That is, given a projective smooth, connected complex curve $C$, what is the Kodaira dimension of $C^{(d)}=C^d/\mathfrak S_d$? When \$d&...
