On a connectedness principle of Shokurov-Kollár type
Let (X, Δ) be a log pair over S, such that-(KX + Δ) is nef over S. It is conjectured that the intersection of the non-klt (non Kawamata log terminal) locus of (X, Δ) with any fiber Xs has at most two connected components. We prove this conjecture in dimension no larger than 4 and in arbitrary dimension assuming the termination of klt flips.
