4:00 pm Tuesday, October 8, 2013 Algebraic Geometry Seminar: Counterexamples to some positivity questionsby John Lesieutre (MIT) in HB 227- I will explain the failure of some positivity properties of divisors: nefness is not an open condition in families over $\mathbb C$; the diminished base locus of a divisor is not always a closed set; Zariski decompositions do not always exist in dimension three, even in a weak sense; and asymptotic multiplicity invariants can be infinite in the relative setting. The examples are fairly elementary, arising on blow-ups of $\mathbb P^2$ and $\mathbb P^3$ at several points, and on certain Calabi-Yau threefolds.
