Fano Schemes of Intersections of Quadrics

Let $g\geqslant 2$, and denote by $\mathrm{X}=\mathrm{Q}_1\cap\mathrm{Q}_2\subset\mathbf{P}^{2g+1}$ a smooth intersection of quadrics. By considering the pencil generated by $\mathrm{Q}_1,\mathrm{Q}_2$...

How explicitly write a projective transformation between the conics over the univariate function field?

Consider the quadratic forms $$Q_1 = x^2 + y^2 - (t^2+1)z^2,\qquad Q_2 = x^2 + y^2 - z^2$$ over the rational function field $\mathbb{F}_p(t)$, where $p > 2$ is a prime such that $t^2 + 1$ is ...

Pascal and Brianchon's theorems generalized for hyperbolic paraboloid

I know that giving a general version of these two theorems for quadrics can be quite tricky, but if we restrict ourselves to a verssion that holds for the hyperbolic paraboloid only it should be ...

Is the Lie quadric $Q^3$ isomorphic to the Lagrangian Grassmannian $LG(2,4)$?

On the paper http://arxiv.org/abs/1009.1364 (published on Proc. London Math. Soc.) I've found an interesting statement: The Lie quadric $Q^3$, i.e., the space of all points, lines and circles ...

Blow-up of $\mathbb{P}^4$ along a quadric surface

Let $Q\subset\mathbb{P}^3\subset\mathbb{P}^4$ be a smooth quadric surface, and let $X = Bl_Q\mathbb{P}^4$ the blow-up of $\mathbb{P}^4$ along $Q$. Let $H$ be the pull-back of the hyperplane section of ...

Automorphisms of a smooth quadric surface $Q\subset\mathbb{P}^{3}$

Let $Q\cong\mathbb{P^{1}_{1}}\times\mathbb{P^{1}_{2}}\subset\mathbb{P}^{3}$ be a smooth quadric surface. We have the following two actions on $Q$: S_2\times Q\rightarrow Q,\; (\sigma,(x,y))\mapsto\...

It's well known that the even-dimensional complex quadric $Q_{2n}$, defined by the equation $z_1^2+\cdots +z_{2n+2}^2=0$ in complex projective space $CP^{2n+1}$, is diffeomorphic with the Grassmann ...

Sections of a fibration in intersections of quadrics

Suppose that we have a smooth variety $X$ of dimension $n$ that fibers (a flat morphism) over a curve $Y$, and s.t. the fibers of $X \to Y$ are all complete interesections of two quadric hypersurfaces ...
Suppose I have a smooth 2-dimensional quadric bundle $f:X\to S$ over a surface $S$. Suppose furthermore that the discriminant locus $\Delta \subset S$ is smooth. Can I immedately conclude that the ...
Let $C\subset\mathbb{P}^r$ be a smooth nondegenerate curve (not contained in any hyperplane) of degree $d$ genus $g>0$. Consider the tangential variety $X$ of $C$: \$X=\cup_{p\in C}T_pC\subset \...
