Title:Boundedness of Fano varieties
Seminar:GAP Seminar
Speaker:Ching-Jui Lai, Purdue University
Fano varieties are important objects to study from the minimal model program point of view since they are building blocks of Mori fiber spaces. We show that there is an effective upper bound of the volume, Vol(-K_X)=−KX^3, for the set of mildly singular Fano varieties. This result is related to the Borisov-Alexeev-Borisov conjecture which asserts boundedness of the set of n-dimensional ϵ-klt log Q-Fano varieties.
