Differentially admissible algebras on a field of positive characteristic
In the case of a base field of characteristic zero,
NúñezBetancourt (2013) introduced a new class of algebras on such a field, which later became called
"differentially admissible algebras", which generalized a class of algebras that Mebkhout and the author had studied
in 1991 as a general framework where there is a good theory of BernsteinSato polynomials and holonomous Dmodules.
In this session, we will propose a notion of "differentially admissible algebras" on a positive characteristic field
and show some of the properties they share.
Unfortunately, and as is well known, the theory of Dmodules on a field of positive characteristic is more complicated
and "uncertain" than on characteristic zero, although recently some generalizations of the "classical theory" have been
introduced (holonomy, BernsteinSato polynomials, etc.) that are still being explored and that could provide interesting advances.
In principle, differentially admissible algebras on a field of positive characteristic would add to this area to be explored.

On arithmetic divisors in Arakelov geometry
Arakelov geometry offers an enjoyable framework to develop an arithmetic
counterpart of the usual intersection theory. For varieties defined over
the ring of integers of a number field, and inspired by the geometric case, one
can define a suitable notion of arithmetic Chow groups and of an arithmetic
intersection product.
In a joint work with Paolo Dolce (Università degli Studi di Udine), we
prove an arithmetic analogue of the classical ShiodaTate formula, relating
the dimension of the first ArakelovChow vector space of an arithmetic
variety to some of its geometric invariants. In doing so, we also characterize
numerically trivial arithmetic divisors, confirming part of a conjecture by
Gillet and Soulé.

\((1)\)curves in \(\mathbb P^r\)
We'll review some ways to generalize \((1)\)curves to higher dimensions, and also review the Coxeter Group theory that applies to standard Cremona transformations based at points, and how the Weyl group is represented in the Chow ring.
The goal is to better understand criteria for when a general \((1)\)curve is a Cremona image of a line, and to apply these ideas to the Mori Dream Space cases of \(\mathbb P^r\) blown up at points.

Extensions of canonical curves and double covers
A variety of dimension \(n\) is said to be extendable \(r\) times if it is the space section of a variety of dimension
\(n+r\) which is not a cone.
I will recall some general facts about extendability, with special regard for extensions of canonical curves to \(K3\) surfaces and Fano 3folds.
Then I will focus on double covers and on their extendability properties.
In particular I will consider \(K3\) surfaces of genus 2, that are double covers of the plane branched over a general sextic.
A first result is that the general curve in the linear system pull back of plane curves of degree \(k\geq 7\) lies on a unique \(K3\) surface,
so it is only once extendable.
A second result is that, by contrast, if \(k\leq 6\) the general such curve is extendable to a higher dimensional variety.
In fact in the cases \(k=4,5,6\), this gives the existence of singular index \(k\) Fano varieties of dimensions 8, 5, 3, genera 17, 26, 37, and indices 6, 3, 1 respectively. For $k = 6$ one recovers the Fano
variety \(\mathbb P(3, 1, 1, 1)\), one of two Fano threefolds with canonical Gorenstein singularities with the maximal genus 37, found by Prokhorov.
A further result is that this latter variety is no further extendable.
For \(k=4\) and \(5\) these Fano varieties have been identified by Totaro.

Trilinear birational maps
A trilinear rational map \(\phi: (\mathbb{P}_\mathbb{C}^1)^3 \dashrightarrow \mathbb{P}_\mathbb{C}^3\) is a rational map whose entries are trilinear polynomials.
If it admits an inverse rational map \(\phi^{1}: \mathbb{P}_\mathbb{C}^3 \dashrightarrow (\mathbb{P}_\mathbb{C}^1)^3\), we say that \(\phi\) is a trilinear birational map. Similarly, a bilinear birational map is a birational map \(\psi: (\mathbb{P}_\mathbb{C}^1)^2 \dashrightarrow \mathbb{P}_\mathbb{C}^2\) with bilinear entries.
Bilinear birational maps can be efficiently used in Computer Aided Design, and are already understood well.
More explicitly, the set of bilinear birational maps is an irreducible locally closed hypersurface in \(\mathbb{P}^{11}\).
Moreover, the base scheme of \(\psi\) is always a closed point, and the minimal bigraded free resolution of its base ideal is HilbertBurch, with two linear syzygies.
In our work, we answer the analogous questions about the algebraic structure, geometry of the base scheme, and resolution of the base ideal, for the 3dimensional counterpart.
Namely, we give the set (of classes) of \(\text{Bir}_{(1,1,1)}\) of trilinear birational maps the structure of an algebraic set, and describe its irreducible components.
Secondly, we provide the complete list of possible base schemes for \(\phi\), up to isomorphism between these.
Finally, we classify all the possible trigraded minimal free resolutions of the base ideal of \(\phi\).

On a localglobal principle for quadratic twists of abelian varieties
Let \(A\) and \(A'\) be abelian varieties defined over a number field \(k\).
In the talk I will consider the following question: Is it true that \(A\) and \(A'\) are quadratic twists of one another if and only if
they are quadratic twists modulo \(p\) for almost every prime \(p\) of \(k\)?
Serre and Ramakrishnan have given a positive answer in the case of elliptic curves and a result of Rajan implies
the validity of the principle when \(A\) and \(A'\) have trivial geometric endomorphism ring. Without restrictions on the endomorphism ring,
I will show that the answer is affirmative up to dimension \(3\), but that it becomes negative in dimension \(4\).
The proof builds on Rajan's result and uses a Tate module tensor decomposition of an abelian variety geometrically isotypic
(the latter obtained in collaboration with Xavier Guitart).
