Jesus Martinez Garcia: The moduli continuity method for log Fano pairs

The existence of a Kähler-Einstein metric on a Q-Gorenstein smoothable Fano variety is equivalent to the algebro-geometric property of K-stability. It is natural to perturb the metric along a pluri-anticanonical divisor, which gives rise to the equivalent property of log K-stability for log pairs. The 'moduli continuity method' has permitted to explicitly realise certain connected components of the moduli of K-stable Fano varieties as GIT quotients. In this talk, we extend the method to log pairs to study some fundamental examples, including log pairs formed by a cubic surface and an anti-canonical divisor, and those formed by projective space and hyperplane sections of high degree. As an application, we show that the moduli of log pairs in these examples is projective.
