Nonuniruledness results for spaces of rational curves in hypersurfaces

Roya Beheshti

Vol. 6 (2012), No. 4, 669–687
Abstract

We prove that the sweeping components of the space of smooth rational curves in a smooth hypersurface of degree d in n are not uniruled if (n + 1)2 d n 3. We also show that for any e 1, the space of smooth rational curves of degree e in a general hypersurface of degree d in n is not uniruled roughly when d en.
