Moving and ample cones of holomorphic symplectic fourfolds

Brendan Hassett, Yuri Tschinkel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We analyze the ample and moving cones of holomorphic symplectic manifolds, in light of recent advances in the minimal model program. As an application, we establish a numerical criterion for ampleness of divisors on fourfolds deformation-equivalent to punctual Hilbert schemes of K3 surfaces.
