Differentiability Of Volumes Of Divisors And A Problem Of Teissier
2009 (English)In: Journal of Algebraic Geometry, ISSN 1056-3911, Vol. 18, no 2, 279-308 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We give an algebraic construction of the positive intersection products of pseudo-effective classes and use them to prove that the volume function on the Neron-Severi space of a projective variety is C-1-differentiable, expressing its differential as a positive intersection product. We also relate the differential to the restricted volumes. We then apply our differentiability result to prove an algebro-geometric version of the Diskant inequality in convex geometry, allowing us to characterize the equality case of the Khovanskii-Teissier inequalities for nef and big classes.
