The final log canonical model of $\overline{\mathcal{M}}_6$

Fabian Müller

Vol. 8 (2014), No. 5, 1113–1126
Abstract

We describe the birational model of ¯6 given by quadric hyperplane sections of the degree-5 del Pezzo surface. In the spirit of the genus-4 case treated by Fedorchuk, we show that it is the last nontrivial space in the log minimal model program for ¯6. We also obtain a new upper bound for the moving slope of the moduli space.

Keywords
