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 $\operatorname{NE}(X)$.

Simple Helices on Fano Threefolds
Building on the work of Nogin,
we prove that the braid group $B_4$ acts transitively on full exceptional
collections of vector bundles on Fano threefolds with $b_2=1$ and
$b_3=0$. Equivalently,
this group acts transitively on the set of simple helices (considered
up to a shift in the derived category) on such a Fano threefold. We
also prove that on
threefolds with $b_2=1$ and very ample anticanonical class, every
exceptional coherent
sheaf is locally free.

On Surfaces with p_{g}=0 and K^{2}=5 We construct new examples of surfaces of general type with $p_g=0$ and $K^2=5$ as ${\mathbb Z}_2 \times {\mathbb Z}_2$-covers and show that they are genus three hyperelliptic fibrations with bicanonical map of degree two.

Restriction of the Tangent Bundle of $G/P$ to a Hypersurface Let P be a maximal proper parabolic subgroup of a connected simple linear algebraic group G, defined over $\mathbb C$, such that $n := \dim_{\mathbb C} G/P \geq 4$. Let $\iota \colon Z \hookrightarrow G/P$ be a reduced smooth hypersurface of degree at least $(n-1)\cdot \operatorname{degree}(T(G/P))/n$. We prove that the restriction of the tangent bundle $\iota^*TG/P$ is semistable.

A One-Dimensional Family of $K3$ Surfaces with a $\Z_4$ Action The minimal resolution of the degree four cyclic cover of the plane
branched along a GIT stable quartic is a $K3$ surface with a non
symplectic action of $\Z_4$. In this paper
we study the geometry of the one-dimensional family of $K3$ surfaces
associated to the locus of plane quartics with five nodes.

Explicit Real Cubic Surfaces The topological classification of smooth real
cubic surfaces is
recalled and compared to the classification in terms of
the number of real lines and of real tritangent planes,
as obtained
by L.~Schl\"afli in 1858.
Using this, explicit examples of
surfaces of every possible type are given.

Exotic Torsion, Frobenius Splitting and the Slope Spectral Sequence In this paper we show that any Frobenius split, smooth, projective
threefold over a perfect field of characteristic $p>0$ is
Hodge--Witt. This is proved by generalizing to the case of
threefolds a well-known criterion due to N.~Nygaard for surfaces to be Hodge-Witt.
We also show that the second crystalline
cohomology of any smooth, projective Frobenius split variety does
not have any exotic torsion. In the last two sections we include
some applications.

Elliptic $K3$ Surfaces with Geometric Mordell--Weil Rank $15$ We prove that the elliptic surface
$y^2=x^3+2(t^8+14t^4+1)x+4t^2(t^8+6t^4+1)$ has geometric Mordell--Weil
rank $15$. This completes a list of Kuwata, who gave explicit examples
of elliptic $K3$-surfaces with geometric Mordell--Weil ranks
$0,1,\dots, 14, 16, 17, 18$.

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 NÃ©ron-Severi group of
this surface and find all low degree curves on it.

Group Actions, Cyclic Coverings and Families of K3-Surfaces In this paper we describe six pencils of $K3$-surfaces which have
large Picard number ($\rho=19,20$) and each contains precisely five
special fibers: four have A-D-E singularities and one is
non-reduced. In particular, we characterize these surfaces as cyclic
coverings of some $K3$-surfaces described in a recent paper by Barth
and the author.
In many cases, using
3-divisible sets, resp., 2-divisible sets, of rational curves and
lattice theory, we describe explicitly the Picard lattices.

On the Modularity of Three Calabi--Yau Threefolds With Bad Reduction at 11 This paper investigates the modularity of three
non-rigid Calabi--Yau threefolds with bad reduction at 11. They are
constructed as fibre products of rational elliptic surfaces,
involving the modular elliptic surface of level 5. Their middle
$\ell$-adic cohomology groups are shown to split into
two-dimensional pieces, all but one of which can be interpreted in
terms of elliptic curves. The remaining pieces are associated to
newforms of weight 4 and level 22 or 55, respectively. For this
purpose, we develop a method by Serre to compare the corresponding
two-dimensional 2-adic Galois representations with uneven trace.
Eventually this method is also applied to a self fibre product of
the Hesse-pencil, relating it to a newform of weight 4 and level
27.

Geometry and Arithmetic of Certain Double Octic Calabi--Yau Manifolds We study Calabi--Yau manifolds constructed as double coverings of
$\mathbb{P}^3$ branched along an octic surface. We give a list of 87
examples corresponding to arrangements of eight planes defined over
$\mathbb{Q}$. The Hodge numbers are computed for all examples. There are
10 rigid Calabi--Yau manifolds and 14 families with $h^{1,2}=1$. The
modularity conjecture is verified for all the rigid examples.

A Note on the Height of the Formal Brauer Group of a $K3$ Surface Using weighted Delsarte surfaces, we give examples of $K3$ surfaces
in positive characteristic whose formal Brauer groups have height
equal to $5$, $8$ or $9$. These are among the four values of the
height left open in the article of Yui \cite{Y}.

Canonical Vector Heights on Algebraic K3 Surfaces with Picard Number Two Let $V$ be an algebraic K3 surface defined over a number field $K$.
Suppose $V$ has Picard number two and an infinite group of
automorphisms $\mathcal{A} = \Aut(V/K)$. In this paper, we
introduce the notion of a vector height $\mathbf{h} \colon V \to
\Pic(V) \otimes \mathbb{R}$ and show the existence of a canonical
vector height $\widehat{\mathbf{h}}$ with the following properties:
\begin{gather*}
\widehat{\mathbf{h}} (\sigma P) = \sigma_* \widehat{\mathbf{h}} (P) \\
h_D (P) = \widehat{\mathbf{h}} (P) \cdot D + O(1),
\end{gather*}
where $\sigma \in \mathcal{A}$, $\sigma_*$ is the pushforward of
$\sigma$ (the pullback of $\sigma^{-1}$), and $h_D$ is a Weil
height associated to the divisor $D$. The bounded function implied
by the $O(1)$ does not depend on $P$. This allows us to attack
some arithmetic problems. For example, we show that the number of
rational points with bounded logarithmic height in an
$\mathcal{A}$-orbit satisfies
$$
N_{\mathcal{A}(P)} (t,D) = \# \{Q \in \mathcal{A}(P) : h_D (Q) Categories:11G50, 14J28, 14G40, 14J50, 14G05 |

Discreteness For the Set of Complex Structures On a Real Variety Let $X$, $Y$ be reduced and irreducible compact complex spaces and
$S$ the set of all isomorphism classes of reduced and irreducible
compact complex spaces $W$ such that $X\times Y \cong X\times W$.
Here we prove that $S$ is at most countable. We apply this result
to show that for every reduced and irreducible compact complex
space $X$ the set $S(X)$ of all complex reduced compact complex
spaces $W$ with $X\times X^\sigma \cong W\times W^\sigma$ (where
$A^\sigma$ denotes the complex conjugate of any variety $A$) is at
most countable.

Griffiths Groups of Supersingular Abelian Varieties The Griffiths group $\Gr^r(X)$ of a smooth projective variety $X$ over
an algebraically closed field is defined to be the group of homologically
trivial algebraic cycles of codimension $r$ on $X$ modulo the subgroup of
algebraically trivial algebraic cycles. The main result of this paper is
that the Griffiths group $\Gr^2 (A_{\bar{k}})$ of a supersingular
abelian variety $A_{\bar{k}}$ over the algebraic closure of a finite
field of characteristic $p$ is at most a $p$-primary torsion group.
As a corollary the same conclusion holds for supersingular Fermat
threefolds. In contrast, using methods of C.~Schoen it is also
shown that if the Tate conjecture is valid for all smooth
projective surfaces and all finite extensions of the finite ground
field $k$ of characteristic $p>2$, then the Griffiths group of any ordinary
abelian threefold $A_{\bar{k}}$ over the algebraic closure of $k$ is
non-trivial; in fact, for all but a finite number of primes $\ell\ne p$ it
is the case that $\Gr^2 (A_{\bar{k}}) \otimes \Z_\ell \neq 0$.

Some Adjunction Properties of Ample Vector Bundles Let $\ce$ be an ample vector bundle of rank $r$ on a projective
variety $X$ with only log-terminal singularities. We consider the
nefness of adjoint divisors $K_X + (t-r) \det \ce$ when $t \ge \dim X$
and $t>r$. As an application, we classify pairs $(X,\ce)$ with
$c_r$-sectional genus zero.

Stable Parabolic Bundles over Elliptic Surfaces and over Riemann Surfaces We show that the use of orbifold bundles enables some questions to

On the nonemptiness of the adjoint linear system of polarized manifold Let $(X,L)$ be a polarized manifold over the complex number field
with $\dim X=n$. In this paper, we consider a conjecture of
M.~C.~Beltrametti and A.~J.~Sommese and we obtain that this
conjecture is true if $n=3$ and $h^{0}(L)\geq 2$, or $\dim \Bs
|L|\leq 0$ for any $n\geq 3$. Moreover we can generalize the
result of Sommese.
