index one cover, surface singularity, positive characteristic
Research Interest:
algebraic geometry
Research Activities:
I consider index one covers of purely log terminal pair (S,B) where S is a normal surface over an algebraically closed field and B is a standard boundary. I prove that when S is smooth and the characteristic is not equal 2, then the index one cover is canonical under some conditions. I am also interested in normal surface singularities in characteristic 2 because in this case index one covers have various singularities.
