# THE NONVANISHING THEOREM

@article{Shokurov1986THENT, title={THE NONVANISHING THEOREM}, author={Vyacheslav Vladimirovich Shokurov}, journal={Mathematics of The Ussr-izvestiya}, year={1986}, volume={26}, pages={591-604} }

The main result of the paper is a nonvanishing theorem that is a sufficient condition for nontriviality of the zeroth cohomology group of inverse sheaves. In addition, applications of this theorem to multidimensional projective geometry are indicated and problems illuminating further insight into the theory of Mori extremal rays are formulated.

We prove a non-vanishing theorem of the cohomology H^0 of the adjoint divisor K_X + L' where L' is the round up of a nef and big Q-divisor L.

The rationality problem for conic bundles.

- Mathematics
- 2017

This expository paper is concerned with the rationality problems for three-dimensional algebraic varieties with a conic bundle structure. We discuss the main methods of this theory. We sketch the… Expand

Fundamental Theorems for the Log Minimal Model Program

- Mathematics
- 2009

In this paper, we prove the cone theorem and the contraction theorem for pairs (X;B), where X is a normal variety and B is an effective R-divisor on X such that KX +B is R-Cartier.

NON-VANISHING THEOREM FOR LOG CANONICAL PAIRS

- Mathematics
- 2009

We obtain a correct generalization of Shokurov's non- vanishing theorem for log canonical pairs. It implies the base point free theorem for log canonical pairs. We also prove the rationality theorem… Expand

In this paper the author establishes, under natural conditions, the local polyhedrality of the closed cone of curves of a three-dimensional algebraic variety in the part that is negative with respect… Expand

The X-method for klt surfaces in positive characteristic

- Mathematics
- 2012

In this paper, we establish a weak version of the Kodaira vanishing theorem for surfaces in positive characteristic. As an application, we obtain some fundamental theorems in the minimal model theory… Expand

Numerical character of the effectivity of adjoint line bundles

- Mathematics
- 2010

In this note we show that given a lc pair $(X, \Delta)$, a large enough multiple of the bundle $K_X+ \Delta$ is effective provided that its Chern class contains an effective $\bQ$-divisor.

Toroidal varieties and the weak factorization theorem

- Mathematics
- 1999

We develop the theory of stratified toroidal varieties, which gives, together with the theory of birational cobordisms [73], a proof of the weak factorization conjecture for birational maps in… Expand

Cone Theorem via Deligne-Mumford stacks, Preprint math.AG/0505043

- 2005

We prove the cone theorem for varieties with LCIQ singularities using deformation theory of stable maps into Deligne-Mumford stacks. We also obtain a sharper bound on −(KX + D)-degree of (KX… Expand

Finite generation of a canonical ring
