  • A. Calabri
Part of the NATO Science Series book series (NAII, volume 36)


In this paper we report on a work in progress about the classification of birational equivalence classes of double planes which are surfaces of Kodaira dimension zero, namely K3, Enriques and bielliptic surfaces.

Key words

double planes birational equivalence K3 surfaces Enriques surfaces bielliptic surfaces
