Download Lectures on Vanishing Theorems (Oberwolfach Seminars) by Esnault, Vieweg PDF

By Esnault, Vieweg

This booklet, a longer number of lectures added at "Schloss Reisensburg" throughout the DMV-Seminar "Algebraic Geometry, 1991", goals at offering Kodaira's vanishing theorem and several other generalizations in a manner that's as algebraic as attainable. We enhance the speculation of logarithmic de Rham complexes, using the corresponding spectral series, lifting homes for manifolds and their Frobenius morphisms in attribute p>0 and the evidence of the degeneration of the Hodge to de Rham spectral series with algebraic tools, as a result of P. Deligne and L. Illusie. We practice these the right way to receive vanishing theorems. a number of regular purposes and the familiar theorems of M. eco-friendly and R. Lazarsfeld whole the image. This exposition is self-contained and available to a person with history in sleek algebraic geometry. the required formalisms from cohomology conception are recalled in an appendix. Contents: creation • Kodaira's vanishing theorem, a common dialogue • Logarithmic de Rham complexes • crucial components of Q-divisors and treatments • Vanishing theorems, the formal set-up • Vanishing theorems for invertible sheaves • Differential types and better direct photographs • a few functions of vanishing theorems • attribute p equipment: Lifting of schemes • The Frobenius and its liftings • The facts of Deligne and Illusie • Vanishing theorems in attribute p. • Deformation thought for cohomology teams • frequent vanishing theorems • Appendix: Hypercohomology and spectral sequences • References
