Self-correspondences of K3 surfaces via moduli of sheaves and arithmetic hyperbolic reflection groups
In a series of our papers with Carlo Madonna (2002–2008), we described self-correspondences of a K3 surface over ℂ via moduli of sheaves with primitive isotropic Mukai vectors for the Picard number 1 or 2 of the K3 surfaces. Here we give a natural and functorial answer to the same problem for an arbitrary Picard number. As an application, we characterize, in terms of self-correspondences via moduli of sheaves, K3 surfaces with reflective Picard lattice, that is, when the automorphism group of the lattice is generated by reflections up to finite index. It is known since 1981 that the number of reflective hyperbolic lattices is finite. We also formulate some natural unsolved related problems.
