We develop some foundational results in a higher-dimensional foliated Mori theory, and show how these results can be used to prove a structure theorem for the Kleiman–Mori cone of curves in terms of the numerical properties of
for rank 2 foliations on threefolds. We also make progress toward realizing a minimal model program (MMP) for rank 2 foliations on threefolds.
We study the Balmer spectrum of the category of finite
-spectra for a compact Lie group
, extending the work for finite
by Strickland, Balmer–Sanders, Barthel–Hausmann–Naumann–Nikolaus–Noel–Stapleton and others. We give a description of the underlying set of the spectrum and show that the Balmer topology is completely determined by the inclusions between the prime ideals and the topology on the space of closed subgroups of
. Using this, we obtain a complete description of this topology for all abelian compact Lie groups and consequently a complete classification of thick tensor ideals. For general compact Lie groups we obtain such a classification away from a finite set of primes
We study the generalized Fermat equation
, to be solved in coprime integers, where
is prime. Modularity and level-lowering techniques reduce the problem to the determination of the sets of rational points satisfying certain 2-adic and 3-adic conditions on a finite set of twists of the modular curve
. We develop new local criteria to decide if two elliptic curves with certain types of potentially good reduction at 2 and 3 can have symplectically or anti-symplectically isomorphic
-torsion modules. Using these criteria we produce the minimal list of twists of
that have to be considered, based on local information at 2 and 3; this list depends on
. We solve the equation completely when
, which previously was the smallest unresolved
. One new ingredient is the use of the ‘Selmer group Chabauty’ method introduced by the third author, applied in an elliptic curve Chabauty context, to determine relevant points on
defined over certain number fields of degree 12. This result is conditional on the generalized Riemann hypothesis, which is needed to show correctness of the computation of the class groups of five specific number fields of degree 36. We also give some partial results for the case
. The source code for the various computations is supplied as supplementary material with the online version of this article.
A question of Griffiths–Schmid asks when the monodromy group of an algebraic family of complex varieties is arithmetic. We resolve this in the affirmative for a class of algebraic surfaces known as Atiyah–Kodaira manifolds, which have base and fibers equal to complete algebraic curves. Our methods are topological in nature and involve an analysis of the ‘geometric’ monodromy, valued in the mapping class group of the fiber.
We prove a super-rigidity result for algebraic representations over complete fields of irreducible lattices in products of groups and lattices with dense commensurator groups. We derive criteria for the non-linearity of such groups.
Moduli spaces of stable objects in the derived category of a
surface provide a large class of holomorphic symplectic varieties. In this paper, we study the interplay between Chern classes of stable objects and zero-cycles on holomorphic symplectic varieties which arise as moduli spaces. First, we show that the second Chern class of any object in the derived category lies in a suitable piece of O’Grady’s filtration on the
-group of the
surface. This solves a conjecture of O’Grady and improves on previous results of Huybrechts, O’Grady, and Voisin. Second, we propose a candidate for the Beauville–Voisin filtration on the
-group of the moduli space of stable objects. We discuss its connection with Voisin’s recent proposal via constant cycle subvarieties, and prove a conjecture of hers on the existence of special algebraically coisotropic subvarieties for the moduli space.
