Curves on threefolds with trivial canonical bundle

  • Kapil H. Paranjape


C H Clemens has shown that homologically trivial codimension two cycles on a general hypersurface of degree five and dimension three form a subgroup of infinite rank inside the intermediate jacobian. We generalize this to other complete intersection threefolds with trivial canonical bundle.
