Original Announcement

This workshop will be devoted to the Mori program for Brauer log pairs in dimension three.

The recent proof of the finite generation of the canonical ring is a major milestone in the Mori program for classifying higher dimensional varieties. The framework of the Mori program has been established in many different contexts, such as for log varieties, varieties with group actions, and rather surprisingly, for Brauer log pairs. These pairs arise naturally in the study of maximal orders and generic projective space bundles. The Mori program in the context of Brauer log pairs, which we call Brauer log MMP, has been completed in dimension two. The main focus for this workshop is to extend this work to dimension three and explore some applications.
