The Cubo-Cubic Transformation and K3 Surfaces

  • Fabian ReedeEmail author


In this note we observe that the Cremona transformation in Oguiso’s example of Cremona isomorphic but not projectively equivalent quartic K3 surfaces in \({\mathbb {P}}^3\) is the classical cubo-cubic transformation of \({\mathbb {P}}^3\).
