From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A boundary Q-divisor on a variety is a Q-divisor D of the form ΣdiDi where the Di are the distinct irreducible components of D and all coefficients are rational numbers with 0≤di≤1.
A logarithmic pair, lor log pair for short, is a pair (X,D) consisting of a normal variety X and a boundary Q-divisor D.
The log canonical divisor of a log pair (X,D) is K+D where K is the canonical divisor of X.
A logarithmic 1-form on a log pair (X,D) is allowed to have logarithmic singularities of the formd log(z) = dz/z along components of the divisor given locally by z=0.
