TITLE: Log Calabi-Yau fibrations

ABSTRACT: Fano and Calabi-Yau varieties play a fundamental role in algebraic geometry, differential geometry, arithmetic geometry, mathematical physics, etc. The notion of log Calabi-Yau fibration unifies Fano and Calabi-Yau varieties, their fibrations, as well as their local birational counterparts such as flips and singularities. Such fibrations can be examined from many different perspectives. The purpose of this talk is to introduce the theory of log Calabi-Yau fibrations, to remind some known results, and to state some open problems.

Written articles will accompany each lecture in this series and be available as part of the publication “History and Literature of Mathematical Science.
