Strong rational connectedness of surfaces

  • Chenyang Xu EMAIL logo


This paper focuses on the study of the strong rational connectedness of smooth rationally connected surfaces. In particular, we show that the smooth locus of a log del Pezzo surface is strongly rationally connected. This confirms a conjecture due to Hassett and Tschinkel in [8].
