Cone over the Veronese surface

Let $V\subset\mathbb{P}^5$ be the Veronese surface and let $X\subset\mathbb{P}^6$ be the cone over it. Since $X$ is $\mathbb{Q}$-factorial there are two integers $a,b$ such that $aK_X = \mathcal{O}_X(...

volume of big line bundles under finite morphisms

Let $X$, $Y$ be complex projective varieties of dimension $n$, let $f:X \rightarrow Y$ be a surjective finite morphism of degree $d$ and let $B$ be a big line bundle on $Y$. Is that true that vol($f^*...

Uniqueness on square root of complex Line Bundle

Let $L$ be a line bundle over a compex manifold $X$, a square-root of $L$ is a line bundle $M$ such that $M^{\otimes2}=L$. My question is when the square-root of Line Bundle is unique?

Line bundles, linear systems and normalization

One example that I always have in mind is that the plane nodal (or even the plane cuspidal) cubic curve $X$ is obtained by an appropirate 2-dim linear subsystem of $|\mathcal{O} (3)|$ on $\mathbb{P}^...

What is the geometric point of view of an algebraic line bundle compared to a analytic line bundle?

Hi folkz, I'm trying to learn more about line bundles, invertible sheaves and divisors on schemes. I understand the connection beweteen Cartier and Weil Divisors and the connection between Cartier ...

Line bundles with complex connection

Suppose that we have a complex manifold $X$, and a line bundle $L$ over $X$. It is known that the line bundles over $X$ are parametrized by their Chern class, the Chern class being the cohomology ...

Computing Euler Charactistics of Line bundles on Hilbert Schemes of points on Surfaces

Let $S^{[2]}$ be the Hilbert scheme of two points on a smooth projective surface (actually, right now I am particularly interested in del Pezzo surfaces). Let $B$ be the exceptional divisor of the ...

Hopf lemma for line bundles on curves in algebraic geometry

In the paper http://arxiv.org/pdf/math/0110256v1.pdf Claire Voisin proves that all linear subspaces which lie inside of a (not too big) secant variety of a smooth projective curve must lie inside one ...
