New cubic fourfolds with odd-degree unirational parametrizations

Kuan-Wen Lai

Vol. 11 (2017), No. 7, 1597–1626
Abstract

We prove that the moduli space of cubic fourfolds C contains a divisor C42 whose general member has a unirational parametrization of degree 13. This result follows from a thorough study of the Hilbert scheme of rational scrolls and an explicit construction of examples. We also show that C42 is uniruled.
