    Abstract. The generic polarized $K3$ surface (S, h) of genus 16, that is, (h^2)=30, is described in a certain compactifeid moduli space \mathcal{T} of twisted cubics in P^3, as a complete intersection with respect to an almost homogeneous vector bundle of rank 10. As corollary we prove the unirationality of the moduli space \mathcal{F}_{16} of such K3 surfaces.

    INI preprint (Programme: Moduli spaces MOS) NI11008-MOS: Igusa quartic and Steiner surfaces

    Abstract. The Igusa quartic has a morphism of degree 8 onto itself. Via this self-morphism, the Satake compactification of the moduli of principally polarized abelian surfaces with Goepel triples (as well as usual p.p.a.s.'s with full level-2 structures) is isomorphic to the Igusa quartic. We also determine the action of Fricke involution on the moduli.

  • Vinberg-Conway chain terminates just after a supersingular symplectic 6-fold with 100 (-2) divisors.

    Abstract: Leech roots calculate fundamental domains of the hyperbolic lattices U+D_n up to n=22. Generalizing a result of Vinberg (1983, n=18), we apply this calculation for n < 21 to (semi-)automorphism groups of various K3 surfaces, and realize the case n=21 as the Picard lattice of the symplectic manifold in characteristic 2 in the title, which is expected to have an action of the Higman-Sims simple group.
