Chern slopes of surfaces of general type in positive characteristic

Giancarlo Urzúa Volume 166, Number 5 (2017)

Let k be an algebraically closed field of characteristic p>0, and let C be a nonsingular projective curve over k. We prove that for any real number x2, there are minimal surfaces of general type X over k such that (a) c12(X)>0, c2(X)>0, (b) π1e´t(X)π1e´t(C), and (c) c12(X)/c2(X) is arbitrarily close to x. In particular, we show the density of Chern slopes in the pathological Bogomolov–Miyaoka–Yau interval (3,) for any given p. Moreover, we prove that for C=P1 there exist surfaces X as above with H1(X,OX)=0, that is, with Picard scheme equal to a reduced point. In this way, we show that even surfaces with reduced Picard scheme are densely persistent in [2,) for any given p.
