ON VARIETIES with TRIVIAL TANGENT BUNDLE in CHARACTERISTIC 0$]]>

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In this article, I give a crystalline characterization of abelian varieties amongst the class of smooth projective varieties with trivial tangent bundles in characteristic 0$]]>. Using my characterization, I show that a smooth, projective, ordinary variety with trivial tangent bundle is an abelian variety if and only if its second crystalline cohomology is torsion-free. I also show that a conjecture of KeZheng Li about smooth projective varieties with trivial tangent bundles in characteristic 0$]]> is true for smooth projective surfaces. I give a new proof of a result by Li and prove a refinement of it. Based on my characterization of abelian varieties, I propose modifications of Li's conjecture, which I expect to be true.
