Cusp singularities given by reflections of stellable cones. (English) Zbl 0756.14001
The author builds “Tsuchihashi cusps” [H. Tsuchihashi, TĂ´hoku Math. J., II. Ser. 35, 607-639 (1983; Zbl 0585.14004)] (this is a generalization of Hilbert modular cusp singularities). Such a singularity is defined by a pair \((C,\Gamma)\) of an open convex cone \(C\subset\mathbb{R}^ n\) and a discrete group \(\Gamma\subset GL(n,\mathbb{Z})\) with good conditions. The author defines and studies the notion of “semi-integral stellable polyhedral cones” \(C\), the group \(\Gamma\) generated by the reflections with respect to the facets of such a \(C\) gives rise to a good pair \((C,\Gamma)\). There is a duality among stellable cones, the corresponding singularities are dual in the sense of Tsuchihashi [loc. cit.].
At the end, the author gives effective examples of his singularities and computes the arithmetic genus default \(\chi_ \infty\) and the Ogata zeta zero \(Z(0)\) and verifies on his examples the Ogata-Satake conjecture: the \(\chi_ \infty\) of a cusp is equal to the \(Z(0)\) of its dual. A proof of this conjecture is announced as forthcoming.
