Deforming elephants of Q-Fano 3-folds (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Shokurov and Reid proved that a Fano 3-fold with canonical
Gorenstein singularities has a Du Val elephant, that is,
a member of the anticanonical linear system with only Du Val singularities.
The classification of Fano 3-folds is based on this fact.
However, for a Fano 3-fold with non-Gorenstein terminal singularities,
the anticanonical system does not contain such a member in general.
Alt{\\i}nok--Brown--Reid conjectured that, if the anticanonical system is non-empty,
a Q-Fano 3-fold can be deformed to that with a Du Val elephant.
In this talk, I will explain how to deform an elephant with isolated
singularities to a Du Val elephant.
