Log minimal models according to Shokurov

Caucher Birkar

Vol. 3 (2009), No. 8, 951–958
Abstract

Following Shokurov’s ideas, we give a short proof of the following klt version of his result: termination of terminal log flips in dimension d implies that any klt pair of dimension d has a log minimal model or a Mori fibre space. Thus, in particular, any klt pair of dimension 4 has a log minimal model or a Mori fibre space.

Keywords
