Classifying sections of del Pezzo fibrations, II

Brian Lehmann and Sho Tanimoto

Geometry & Topology 26 (2022) 2565–2647
DOI: 10.2140/gt.2022.26.2565
Abstract

Let X be a del Pezzo surface over the function field of a complex curve. We study the behavior of rational points on X leading to bounds on the counting function in the geometric Manin conjecture. A key tool is the movable bend-and-break lemma, which yields an inductive approach to classifying relatively free sections for a del Pezzo fibration over a curve. Using this lemma we prove the geometric Manin conjecture for certain split del Pezzo surfaces of degree 2 admitting a birational morphism to 2 over the ground field.
