Pseudo-index and minimal length of extremal rays for Fano manifolds (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
The minimum of intersection numbers of the anticanonical
divisor with rational curves on a Fano manifold is called pseudo-index.
In view of the fact that the geometry of Fano manifolds is governed by
its extremal rays, it is important to consider the extremal rational
curves. In this talk, we show that for Fano 4-folds having birational
contractions, the minimal length of extremal rays coincides with the
pseudo-index.
