Title: A tentative integer-valued birational invariant of threefolds
Date: Apr 11, 2015, 9:30 - 10:30
Place: Simons Centre for Geometry and Physics, Stony Brook
I will give an experimental evidence towards the existence of an integer-valued birational invariant of (rationally connected) threefolds, that tends to distinguish most Fano threefolds with Picard number one. Also I will describe what values it should take on some known examples, and what properties should it satisfy.
