The cone conjecture for abelian varieties
The cone conjecture of Morrison and Kawamata predicts that the nef cone of a projective variety should be rational polyhedral up to automorphisms, in various Calabi–Yau-type situations. I will discuss a proof of the conjecture in the case of abelian varieties. The key ingredient is reduction theory for arithmetic group actions on homogeneous cones, due to Ash.
