The structure of algebraic threefolds: An introduction to Mori’s program. (English) Zbl 0649.14022
The paper is an excellent introduction, mainly devoted to nonexperts, to the minimal model program (MMP), developed by S. Mori with relevant contributions due to many people (Benveniste, Kawamata, the author, Reid, Shokurov). The aim of the paper is to give an accessible outline of the recent progresses in MMP. It also contains many illuminating examples and comments. [See also the following review.]
