To construct a resulting model in the LMMP, it is sufficient to prove the existence of log flips and their termination for some sequences. We prove that the LMMP in dimension d − 1 and the termination of terminal log flips in dimension d imply, for any log pair of dimension d, the existence of a resulting model: a strictly log minimal model or a strictly log terminal Mori log fibration, and imply the existence of log flips in dimension d + 1. As a consequence, we prove the existence of a resulting model of 4-fold log pairs, the existence of log flips in dimension 5, and Geography of log models in dimension 4.
