# Cubic surface

Cubic surface (Redirected from Cayley–Salmon theorem) Jump to navigation Jump to search In mathematics, a cubic surface is a surface in 3-dimensional space defined by one polynomial equation of degree 3. Cubic surfaces are fundamental examples in algebraic geometry. The theory is simplified by working in projective space rather than affine space, and so cubic surfaces are generally considered in projective 3-space {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{3}} . The theory also becomes more uniform by focusing on surfaces over the complex numbers rather than the real numbers; note that a complex surface has real dimension 4. A simple example is the Fermat cubic surface {displaystyle x^{3}+y^{3}+z^{3}+w^{3}=0} in {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{3}} . Many properties of cubic surfaces hold more generally for del Pezzo surfaces.

More generally, every irreducible cubic surface (possibly singular) over an algebraically closed field is rational unless it is the projective cone over a cubic curve.[2] In this respect, cubic surfaces are much simpler than smooth surfaces of degree at least 4 in {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{3}} , which are never rational. In characteristic zero, smooth surfaces of degree at least 4 in {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{3}} are not even uniruled.[3] More strongly, Clebsch showed that every smooth cubic surface in {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{3}} over an algebraically closed field is isomorphic to the blow-up of {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{2}} at 6 points.[4] As a result, every smooth cubic surface over the complex numbers is diffeomorphic to the connected sum {displaystyle mathbf {CP} ^{2}#6(-mathbf {CP} ^{2})} , where the minus sign refers to a change of orientation. Conversely, the blow-up of {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{2}} at 6 points is isomorphic to a cubic surface if and only if the points are in general position, meaning that no three points lie on a line and all 6 do not lie on a conic. As a complex manifold (or an algebraic variety), the surface depends on the arrangement of those 6 points.

27 lines on a cubic surface Most proofs of rationality for cubic surfaces start by finding a line on the surface. (In the context of projective geometry, a line in {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{3}} is isomorphic to {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{1}} .) More precisely, Arthur Cayley and George Salmon showed in 1849 that every smooth cubic surface over an algebraically closed field contains exactly 27 lines.[5] This is a distinctive feature of cubics: a smooth quadric (degree 2) surface is covered by a continuous family of lines, while most surfaces of degree at least 4 in {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{3}} contain no lines. Another useful technique for finding the 27 lines involves Schubert calculus which computes the number of lines using the intersection theory of the Grassmannian of lines on {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{3}} .

As the coefficients of a smooth complex cubic surface are varied, the 27 lines move continuously. As a result, a closed loop in the family of smooth cubic surfaces determines a permutation of the 27 lines. The group of permutations of the 27 lines arising this way is called the monodromy group of the family of cubic surfaces. A remarkable 19th-century discovery was that the monodromy group is neither trivial nor the whole symmetric group {displaystyle S_{27}} ; it is a group of order 51840, acting transitively on the set of lines.[4] This group was gradually recognized (by Élie Cartan (1896), Arthur Coble (1915-17), and Patrick du Val (1936)) as the Weyl group of type {displaystyle E_{6}} , a group generated by reflections on a 6-dimensional real vector space, related to the Lie group {displaystyle E_{6}} of dimension 78.[4] The same group of order 51840 can be described in combinatorial terms, as the automorphism group of the graph of the 27 lines, with a vertex for each line and an edge whenever two lines meet.[6] This graph was analyzed in the 19th century using subgraphs such as the Schläfli double six configuration. The complementary graph (with an edge whenever two lines are disjoint) is known as the Schläfli graph.

The Schläfli graph Many problems about cubic surfaces can be solved using the combinatorics of the {displaystyle E_{6}} root system. For example, the 27 lines can be identified with the weights of the fundamental representation of the Lie group {displaystyle E_{6}} . The possible sets of singularities that can occur on a cubic surface can be described in terms of subsystems of the {displaystyle E_{6}} root system.[7] One explanation for this connection is that the {displaystyle E_{6}} lattice arises as the orthogonal complement to the anticanonical class {displaystyle -K_{X}} in the Picard group {displaystyle operatorname {Pic} (X)cong mathbf {Z} ^{7}} , with its intersection form (coming from the intersection theory of curves on a surface). For a smooth complex cubic surface, the Picard lattice can also be identified with the cohomology group {displaystyle H^{2}(X,mathbf {Z} )} .

An Eckardt point is a point where 3 of the 27 lines meet. Most cubic surfaces have no Eckardt point, but such points occur on a codimension-1 subset of the family of all smooth cubic surfaces.[8] Given an identification between a cubic surface on X and the blow-up of {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{2}} at 6 points in general position, the 27 lines on X can be viewed as: the 6 exceptional curves created by blowing up, the birational transforms of the 15 lines through pairs of the 6 points in {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{2}} , and the birational transforms of the 6 conics containing all but one of the 6 points.[9] A given cubic surface can be viewed as a blow-up of {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{2}} in more than one way (in fact, in 72 different ways), and so a description as a blow-up does not reveal the symmetry among all 27 of the lines.

The relation between cubic surfaces and the {displaystyle E_{6}} root system generalizes to a relation between all del Pezzo surfaces and root systems. This is one of many ADE classifications in mathematics. Pursuing these analogies, Vera Serganova and Alexei Skorobogatov gave a direct geometric relation between cubic surfaces and the Lie group {displaystyle E_{6}} .[10] In physics, the 27 lines can be identified with the 27 possible charges of M-theory on a six-dimensional torus (6 momenta; 15 membranes; 6 fivebranes) and the group E6 then naturally acts as the U-duality group. This map between del Pezzo surfaces and M-theory on tori is known as mysterious duality.

Special cubic surfaces The smooth complex cubic surface in {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{3}} with the largest automorphism group is the Fermat cubic surface, defined by {displaystyle x^{3}+y^{3}+z^{3}+w^{3}=0.} Its automorphism group is an extension {displaystyle 3^{3}:S_{4}} , of order 648.[11] The next most symmetric smooth cubic surface is the Clebsch surface, which can be defined in {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{4}} by the two equations {displaystyle x_{0}+x_{1}+x_{2}+x_{3}+x_{4}=x_{0}^{3}+x_{1}^{3}+x_{2}^{3}+x_{3}^{3}+x_{4}^{3}=0.} Its automorphism group is the symmetric group {displaystyle S_{5}} , of order 120. After a complex linear change of coordinates, the Clebsch surface can also be defined by the equation {displaystyle x^{2}y+y^{2}z+z^{2}w+w^{2}x=0} in {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{3}} .

Cayley's nodal cubic surface Among singular complex cubic surfaces, Cayley's nodal cubic surface is the unique surface with the maximal number of nodes, 4: {displaystyle wxy+xyz+yzw+zwx=0.} Its automorphism group is {displaystyle S_{4}} , of order 24.

Real cubic surfaces In contrast to the complex case, the space of smooth cubic surfaces over the real numbers is not connected in the classical topology (based on the topology of R). Its connected components (in other words, the classification of smooth real cubic surfaces up to isotopy) were determined by Ludwig Schläfli (1863), Felix Klein (1865), and H. G. Zeuthen (1875).[12] Namely, there are 5 isotopy classes of smooth real cubic surfaces X in {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{3}} , distinguished by the topology of the space of real points {displaystyle X(mathbf {R} )} . The space of real points is diffeomorphic to either {displaystyle W_{7},W_{5},W_{3},W_{1}} , or the disjoint union of {displaystyle W_{1}} and the 2-sphere, where {displaystyle W_{r}} denotes the connected sum of r copies of the real projective plane {displaystyle mathbf {RP} ^{2}} . Correspondingly, the number of real lines contained in X is 27, 15, 7, 3, or 3.

A smooth real cubic surface is rational over R if and only if its space of real points is connected, hence in the first four of the previous five cases.[13] The average number of real lines on X is {displaystyle 6{sqrt {2}}-3} [14] when the defining polynomial for X is sampled at random from the Gaussian ensemble induced by the Bombieri inner product.

The moduli space of cubic surfaces Two smooth cubic surfaces are isomorphic as algebraic varieties if and only if they are equivalent by some linear automorphism of {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{3}} . Geometric invariant theory gives a moduli space of cubic surfaces, with one point for each isomorphism class of smooth cubic surfaces. This moduli space has dimension 4. More precisely, it is an open subset of the weighted projective space P(12345), by Salmon and Clebsch (1860). In particular, it is a rational 4-fold.[15] The cone of curves The lines on a cubic surface X over an algebraically closed field can be described intrinsically, without reference to the embedding of X in {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{3}} : they are exactly the (−1)-curves on X, meaning the curves isomorphic to {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{1}} that have self-intersection −1. Also, the classes of lines in the Picard lattice of X (or equivalently the divisor class group) are exactly the elements u of Pic(X) such that {displaystyle u^{2}=-1} and {displaystyle -K_{X}cdot u=1} . (This uses that the restriction of the hyperplane line bundle O(1) on {displaystyle mathbf {P} ^{3}} to X is the anticanonical line bundle {displaystyle -K_{X}} , by the adjunction formula.) For any projective variety X, the cone of curves means the convex cone spanned by all curves in X (in the real vector space {displaystyle N_{1}(X)} of 1-cycles modulo numerical equivalence, or in the homology group {displaystyle H_{2}(X,mathbf {R} )} if the base field is the complex numbers). For a cubic surface, the cone of curves is spanned by the 27 lines.[16] In particular, it is a rational polyhedral cone in {displaystyle N_{1}(X)cong mathbf {R} ^{7}} with a large symmetry group, the Weyl group of {displaystyle E_{6}} . There is a similar description of the cone of curves for any del Pezzo surface.

Cubic surfaces over a field A smooth cubic surface X over a field k which is not algebraically closed need not be rational over k. As an extreme case, there are smooth cubic surfaces over the rational numbers Q (or the p-adic numbers {displaystyle mathbf {Q} _{p}} ) with no rational points, in which case X is certainly not rational.[17] If X(k) is nonempty, then X is at least unirational over k, by Beniamino Segre and János Kollár.[18] For k infinite, unirationality implies that the set of k-rational points is Zariski dense in X.

The absolute Galois group of k permutes the 27 lines of X over the algebraic closure {displaystyle {overline {k}}} of k (through some subgroup of the Weyl group of {displaystyle E_{6}} ). If some orbit of this action consists of disjoint lines, then X is the blow-up of a "simpler" del Pezzo surface over k at a closed point. Otherwise, X has Picard number 1. (The Picard group of X is a subgroup of the geometric Picard group {displaystyle operatorname {Pic} (X_{overline {k}})cong mathbf {Z} ^{7}} .) In the latter case, Segre showed that X is never rational. More strongly, Yuri Manin proved a birational rigidity statement: two smooth cubic surfaces with Picard number 1 over a perfect field k are birational if and only if they are isomorphic.[19] For example, these results give many cubic surfaces over Q that are unirational but not rational.

Singular cubic surfaces In contrast to smooth cubic surfaces which contain 27 lines, singular cubic surfaces contain fewer lines. [20] Moreover, they can be classified by the type of singularity which arises in their normal form. These singularities are classified using Dynkin diagrams.

Classification A normal singular cubic surface {displaystyle X} in {displaystyle {textbf {P}}_{mathbb {C} }^{3}} with local coordinates {displaystyle [x_{0}:x_{1}:x_{2}:x_{3}]} is said to be in normal form if it is given by {displaystyle F=x_{3}f_{2}(x_{0},x_{1},x_{2})-f_{3}(x_{0},x_{1},x_{2})=0} . Depending on the type of singularity {displaystyle X} contains, it is isomorphic to the projective surface in {displaystyle {textbf {P}}^{3}} given by {displaystyle F=x_{3}f_{2}(x_{0},x_{1},x_{2})-f_{3}(x_{0},x_{1},x_{2})=0} where {displaystyle f_{2},f_{3}} are as in the table below. That means we can obtain a classification of all singular cubic surfaces. The parameters of the following table are as follows: {displaystyle a,b,c} are three distinct elements of {displaystyle mathbb {C} setminus {0,1}} , the parameters {displaystyle d,e} are in {displaystyle mathbb {C} setminus {0,-1}} and {displaystyle u} is an element of {displaystyle mathbb {C} setminus {0}} . Notice that there are two different singular cubic surfaces with singularity {displaystyle D_{4}} . [21] Classification of singular cubic surfaces by singularity type [21] hide Singularity {displaystyle f_{2}(x_{0},x_{1},x_{2})} {displaystyle f_{3}(x_{0},x_{1},x_{2})} {displaystyle A_{1}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{2}-x_{1}^{2}} {displaystyle (x_{0}-ax_{1})(-x_{0}+(b+1)x_{1}-bx_{2})(x_{1}-cx_{2})} {displaystyle 2A_{1}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{2}-x_{1}^{2}} {displaystyle (x_{0}-2x_{1}+x_{2})(x_{0}-ax_{1})(x_{1}-bx_{2})} {displaystyle A_{1}A_{2}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{2}-x_{1}^{2}} {displaystyle (x_{0}-x_{1})(-x_{1}+x_{2})(x_{0}-(a+1)x_{1}+ax_{2})} {displaystyle 3A_{1}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{2}-x_{1}^{2}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{2}(x_{0}-(a+1)x_{1}+ax_{2})} {displaystyle A_{1}A_{3}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{2}-x_{1}^{2}} {displaystyle (x_{0}-x_{1})(-x_{1}+x_{2})(x_{0}-2x_{1}+x_{2})} {displaystyle 2A_{1}A_{2}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{2}-x_{1}^{2}} {displaystyle x_{1}^{2}(x_{0}-x_{1})} {displaystyle 4A_{1}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{2}-x_{1}^{2}} {displaystyle (x_{0}-x_{1})(x_{1}-x_{2})x_{1}} {displaystyle A_{1}A_{4}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{2}-x_{1}^{2}} {displaystyle x_{0}^{2}x_{1}} {displaystyle 2A_{1}A_{3}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{2}-x_{1}^{2}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{1}^{2}} {displaystyle A_{1}2A_{2}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{2}-x_{1}^{2}} {displaystyle x_{1}^{3}} {displaystyle A_{1}A_{5}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{2}-x_{1}^{2}} {displaystyle x_{0}^{3}} {displaystyle A_{2}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{1}} {displaystyle x_{2}(x_{0}+x_{1}+x_{2})(dx_{0}+ex_{1}+dex_{2})} {displaystyle 2A_{2}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{1}} {displaystyle x_{2}(x_{1}+x_{2})(-x_{1}+dx_{2})} {displaystyle 3A_{2}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{1}} {displaystyle x_{2}^{3}} {displaystyle A_{3}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{1}} {displaystyle x_{2}(x_{0}+x_{1}+x_{2})(x_{0}-ux_{1})} {displaystyle A_{4}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{1}} {displaystyle x_{0}^{2}x_{2}+x_{1}^{3}-x_{1}x_{2}^{2}} {displaystyle A_{5}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{1}} {displaystyle x_{0}^{3}+x_{1}^{3}-x_{1}x_{2}^{2}} {displaystyle D_{4}(1)} {displaystyle x_{0}^{2}} {displaystyle x_{1}^{3}+x_{2}^{3}} {displaystyle D_{4}(2)} {displaystyle x_{0}^{2}} {displaystyle x_{1}^{3}+x_{2}^{3}+x_{0}x_{1}x_{2}} {displaystyle D_{5}} {displaystyle x_{0}^{2}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{2}^{2}+x_{1}^{2}x_{2}} {displaystyle E_{6}} {displaystyle x_{0}^{2}} {displaystyle x_{0}x_{2}^{2}+x_{1}^{3}} {displaystyle {tilde {E}}_{6}} {displaystyle 0} {displaystyle x_{1}^{2}x_{2}-x_{0}(x_{0}-x_{2})(x_{0}-ax_{2})} In normal form, whenever a cubic surface {displaystyle X} contains at least one {displaystyle A_{1}} singularity, it will have an {displaystyle A_{1}} singularity at {displaystyle [0:0:0:1]} . [20] Lines on singular cubic surfaces According to the classification of singular cubic surfaces, the following table shows the number of lines each surface contains.

Such automorphisms preserve singular points. Moreover, they do not permute singularities of different types. If the surface contains two singularities of the same type, the automorphism may permute them. The collection of automorphisms on a cubic surface forms a group, the so-called automorphism group. The following table shows all automorphism groups of singular cubic surfaces with no parameters.
