Fanography

A tool to visually study the geography of Fano 3-folds.

Identification

Fano variety 2-8
  1. double cover of 2-35 with branch locus an anticanonical divisor such that the intersection with the exceptional divisor is smooth
  2. double cover of 2-35 with branch locus an anticanonical divisor such that the intersection with the exceptional divisor is singular but reduced

Period sequence

The following period sequences are associated to this Fano 3-fold:

GRDB
#144
Fanosearch
#26
Extremal contractions
Semiorthogonal decompositions

There exist interesting semiorthogonal decompositions, but this data is not yet added.

Structure of quantum cohomology

By Hertling–Manin–Teleman we have that quantum cohomology cannot be generically semisimple, as $\mathrm{h}^{1,2}\neq 0$.

Zero section description

Fano 3-folds from homogeneous vector bundles over Grassmannians gives the following description(s):

variety
$\mathbb{P}^2 \times \mathbb{P}^3 \times \mathbb{P}^{12}$
bundle
$\Lambda(0,0,1) \oplus \mathcal{O}(0,0,2)$
