Overview of the Mori Program
The purpose of this chapter is to outline the key points of the Mori program in dimension 3 (or higher), extending the analogy from dimension 2 to higher dimensions as much as possible. At the same time we try to distinguish the remarkable features, such as flips, that are unique to higher dimensions. We will not give any detailed proofs in this chapter. The emphasis is on presenting the global picture at an early stage by taking the reader on a quick roller-coaster ride of the Mori program.
