A Note on Rational Curves on General Fano Hypersurfaces
We show that the Kontsevich space of rational curves of degree at most roughly on a general hypersurface of degree is equidimensional of expected dimension and has two components: one consisting generically of smooth embedded rational curves and the other consisting of multiple covers of a line. This proves more cases of a conjecture of Coskun, Harris, and Starr and shows that the Gromov–Witten invariants in these cases are enumerative.
