Manifolds Covered by Lines and Extremal Rays
Let $X$ be a smooth complex projective variety, and let $H \in \operatorname{Pic}(X)$ be an ample line bundle. Assume that $X$ is covered by rational curves with degree one with respect to $H$ and with anticanonical degree greater than or equal to $(\dim X -1)/2$. We prove that there is a covering family of such curves whose numerical class spans an extremal ray in the cone of curves $\operatorname{NE}(X)$.

A K3 Surface Associated With Certain Integral Matrices Having Integral Eigenvalues
In this article we will show that there are infinitely many symmetric, integral $3 \times 3$ matrices, with zeros on the diagonal, whose eigenvalues are all integral. We will do this by proving that the rational points on a certain non-Kummer, singular K3 surface are dense. We will also compute the entire N\'eron--Severi group of this surface and find all low degree curves on it.

Keywords:symmetric matrices, eigenvalues, elliptic surfaces, K3 surfaces, Néron--Severi group, rational curves, Diophantine equations, arithmetic geometry, algebraic geometry, number theory
