Book on Moduli of Surfaces --- ongoing project
I am writing a book on the moduli of varieties of general type,
more generally about the moduli of pairs (X,D) such that
K_X+D is ample.
I will try to keep posting the chapters as they get written.
As usual, in writing a chapter one discovers that the earlier ones
should be changed, so I will try to update them as well.
Others agreed to contribute various sections, these will
be added as they become available.
Since these are not final notes, citations, references, proofs
or even entire sections may be missing.
Any comments, corrections or suggestions are welcome.
Chapter 1: Introduction
This is mostly a review of moduli theory, with lots of examples
of what can go wrong for varieties that are not canonically polarized,
or too singular, or ...
Chapter 2: Canonical models
This is mostly a review of the theory of canonical models, with special
attention to the various important classes of singularities.
(For example, canonical, klt, dlt, rational, log canonical, Du Bois, ...)
Chapter 3: Semi log canonical pairs
This gives the construction of the higher dimensional analogs of
stable curves. Some of it is quite technical.
