Calabi–Yau quotients with terminal singularities

  • Filippo F. Favale


In this paper we are interested in quotients of Calabi–Yau threefolds with isolated singularities. In particular, we analyze the case when X / G has terminal singularities. We prove that, if G is cyclic of prime order and X / G has terminal singularities, then G has order lower than or equal to 5.
