DESCRIPTION:This talk will be an introduction to some parts of
the Minimal Model Program. Starting with any mild
ly singular n-dimensional variety X\, the goal of
the Minimal Model Program is to either show that X
is a fibration with positively curved fibers\, or
to produce a minimal model Y which is birational
to X. That Y is minimal means it has a nef canonic
al class\, in other words the restriction of a dif
ferential n-form to any curve in Y has at least as
many zeroes as it has poles. In lower dimensions
this goal is always achievable\, while in higher d
imensions there are still many conjectures. I will
try to demonstrate some central techniques and re
sults\, and the talk will hopefully include many i
llustrative examples of the interesting geometry h
appening in higher dimensions.
