On weak Fano varieties with log canonical singularities

  • Yoshinori Gongyo EMAIL logo


We prove that the anti-canonical divisors of weak Fano 3-folds with log canonical singularities are semi-ample. Moreover, we consider semi-ampleness of the anti-log canonical divisor of any weak log Fano pair with log canonical singularities. We show semi-ampleness dose not hold in general by constructing several examples. Based on those examples, we propose sufficient conditions which seem to be the best possible and we prove semi-ampleness under such conditions. In particular we derive semi-ampleness of the anti-canonical divisors of log canonical weak Fano varieties whose lc centers are at most 1-dimensional. We also investigate the Kleiman–Mori cones of weak log Fano pairs with log canonical singularities.
