QQ-Fano 3-folds
Miles Reid (University of Warwick)

The talk is about QQ-Fano 3-folds, esp. codimension 4, where there is no tractable structure theory. I discuss the algebraic idea of Gorenstein unprojection, and some particular cases called Tom and Jerry. The database lists 145 numerical candidates for codimension 1 QQ-Fanos, of which around 130 have a Type 1 centre. Every one of these candidates gives rise to at least 2 families of QQ-Fano 3-folds that have the same numerical specification (that is, Hilbert series), but are topologically different (have different Betti numbers).
