Varieties of small degree with respect to codimension and ample vector bundles

Antonio LANTERI and Carla NOVELLI

Full-text: Open access


Let  E   be an ample vector bundle on a projective manifold X , with a section vanishing on a smooth subvariety Z   of the expected dimension, and let H   be an ample line bundle on X   inducing a very ample ample line bundle H Z   on Z . Triplets (X,E,H) as above are classified assuming that Z , embedded by | H Z | , is a variety of small degree with respect to codimension.
