A software package for Mori dream spaces. (English) Zbl 1348.14002
The article under review gives a description of a software package MDSpackage implemented by the authors of the article for Maple. A Mori dream space \(X\) is a normal complete variety defined over a field of characteristic 0 which has a finitely generated Cox ring. Such a variety can be encoded by its Cox ring \(\mathcal{R}(X)\) and some combinatorial data determining a linearization of a certain torus action of \(\mathrm{Spec }\mathcal{R}(X)\). Many important geometric properties of \(X\) can be read out from such a description by computations. The MDSpackage package allows, in particular, to obtain information on the divisor class groups of \(X\), the cone of movable divisors \(\mathrm{Mov}(X)\) and its chamber decomposition, the ambient toric variety of \(X\), singularities of \(X\), and several other aspects under additional assumptions: \(\mathcal{R}(X)\) being a complete intersection ring or existence of a torus action of complexity one on \(X\).
In the first part of the article the functions of the package are presented on three examples: a Fano variety, a Gorenstein del Pezzo surface of Picard number one, and a variety with a torus action of complexity one. The second part concerns a single example of a 4-dimensional non-compact symplectic singular variety \(\mathbb{C}^4/G\), a quotient of \(\mathbb{C}^4\) by a finite matrix group \(G\) of order 32. Symplectic resolutions of this quotient singularity were constructed by M. Donten-Bury and J.A. Wiśniewski in [“81 resolutions of a 4-dimensional quotient by a group of order 32”, to appear in Kyoto J. Math.] using methods related to Cox rings. The authors of MDSpackage demonstrate how the Cox ring of all symplectic resolutions of \(\mathbb{C}^4/G\) can be computed using their software.
