This variety is primitive.

This variety can be blown up (in a curve) to

  • 2-4, in a curve of genus 10
  • 2-9, in a curve of genus 5
  • 2-12, in a curve of genus 3
  • 2-15, in a curve of genus 4
  • 2-17, in a curve of genus 1
  • 2-19, in a curve of genus 2
  • 2-22, in a curve of genus 0
  • 2-25, in a curve of genus 1
  • 2-27, in a curve of genus 0
  • 2-28, in a curve of genus 1
  • 2-30, in a curve of genus 0
  • 2-33, in a curve of genus 0

This variety is fibre-like, i.e. it can appear as the fibre of a Mori fibre space.

Fanosearch
#12
Semiorthogonal decompositions

A full exceptional collection was constructed by Beilinson in 1978, see [MR0509388] .

Alternatively, Kawamata has constructed a full exceptional collection for every smooth projective toric variety.

Structure of quantum cohomology

Generic semisimplicity of:

  • small quantum cohomology, proved by someone in at some point, see [?] , using
  • small quantum cohomology, proved by Iritani in 2007, see [MR2359850] , using toric geometry
