Abstract:

Minimal Fano threefolds are known to be (mirror) modular
i.e. their regularized I-series can be expressed
as a weight 2 newform expanded in terms of
a Hauptmodul of the same level.
It turns out similar phenomena holds also for some non-minimal Fano threefolds -
we'll review these results and discuss approaches to predict (mirror) modular Fano varieties.
