Publication# Singularities of general fibers and the LMMP

Abstract

We use the theory of foliations to study the relative canonical divisor of a normalized inseparable base-change. Our main technical theorem states that it is linearly equivalent to a divisor with positive integer coefficients divisible by p - 1. We deduce many consequences about the fibrations of the minimal model program: for example the general fibers of terminal Mori fiber spaces of relative dimension 2 are normal in characteristic p >= 5 and smooth in characteristic p >= 11.

Minimal model program

In algebraic geometry, the minimal model program is part of the birational classification of algebraic varieties. Its goal is to construct a birational model of any complex projective variety which is as simple as possible. The subject has its origins in the classical birational geometry of surfaces studied by the Italian school, and is currently an active research area within algebraic geometry. The basic idea of the theory is to simplify the birational classification of varieties by finding, in each birational equivalence class, a variety which is "as simple as possible".

Divisor

In mathematics, a divisor of an integer , also called a factor of , is an integer that may be multiplied by some integer to produce . In this case, one also says that is a multiple of An integer is divisible or evenly divisible by another integer if is a divisor of ; this implies dividing by leaves no remainder. An integer n is divisible by a nonzero integer m if there exists an integer k such that . This is written as Other ways of saying the same thing are that m divides n, m is a divisor of n, m is a factor of n, and n is a multiple of m.
