The additive dilogarithm
Recall that a divisor F on a variety X is said to be b-semiample (bnef ) if there exists a model Y dominating X and an R-Cartier divisor L on Y such that the b-divisor L is b-semiample (respectively, b-nef ) and F = (L)X .
On Zariski decomposition problem
Equivalent: there exists a birational contraction f : Y → X and a semiample (respectively, nef ) R-Cartier divisor L on Y such that f∗L = F .
On Zariski decomposition problem
For a rational 1-contraction α : X 99K Y, we may define the pul lback of any R-Cartier divisor D as follows: α∗D def= g∗h∗D (it is easy to show that this definition does not depend on the choice of the hut (1.2)).
On Zariski decomposition problem
It is easy to see that the property of an R-Cartier divisor to be pseudo-effective is closed under taking pull-backs f ∗ .
On Zariski decomposition problem
Note that in the two-dimensional case the R- (or Q)-Cartier condition is not necessary: the intersection theory is defined for any normal surface (see, e.g.., ).
On Zariski decomposition problem
For any pseudo-effective divisor D on a surface X, there exists a decomposition D = P + N of b-divisors in the group BCDivR (K (X )) of b-Cartier b-divisors (see[Isk]) that induce Zariski decompositions (D)Y = PY + NY on al l normal projective models Y /X .
On Zariski decomposition problem
Let D be an R-Cartier divisor on a variety X and let N (D) be the negative part in a (generalized) Zariski decomposition.
