Advances in the minimal model program and open questions.
Speaker: Ray Lai, Purdue University
Abstract: In the course of birational classification of smooth complex projective varieties, the Good minimal model (GMM) conjecture is a natural generalization of the study of surfaces by Italian schools. The minimal model program is a generalization in higher dimensions of creating (relative) minimal surfaces. We will give a review on the theory of minimal model program, some recent results, and related open questions.
