We recall [11, p. 143] the canonical extension by 0 from T(M\ 6(mK)) to
T(M0, &(mK))9 where 6(K0) is the canonical sheaf on M0r.
Af
is the exceptional
set in Af'. Let (x, , z) be local coordinates in 911 near (0,0,0) E ^4'. AT = (z =
0}. S, the exceptional set in 911, has reduced equation either xy = 0 or x = 0. For
convenience, we have chosen 911 so that A' n(& E0) 0. So p: 911 -* r is
given respectively by t
xaybzu(x9
y9 z) or t
xazu(x9
y, z) with a9 b \ and
i/(0,0,0) ¥= 0. The second case is essentially a special case of the first case, so we
shall take / =
xaybzu
: =
xaybzu(x9
y9 z). Recall that M0 = {^ = 0}. Let
Tr
E
T(M\ &(mK)). T' may be given locally by
(4.7) T'=f(x9y)(dxAdy)m.
Extend T' to T on M0 by
(4.8) r =
(xaybu)mf(x,
y)(dx A dy A
dz)m.
Off of £
0
, the vector field ^ =
(\/xaybu)d/dz
satisfies tf(0 = 1 on AT and so
demonstrates the triviality of the normal bundle to M' A'. Contracting r with 0,
m times, gives T', as needed. On M0, the computed equation for T is independent
of the choices which we have made.
Recall the resolution £: M' - V9 obtained by taking the germ of £r above at A'.
Let 77: Af - Fb e the minimal resolution. There is a blowing down map a: M' -*
M. Let / be the divisor of the Jacobian of the map a. Recall that &(K) denotes
the canonical sheaf on both M and M'. Then
a*: T(M, &(mK)) r(M
r
, 6(mK mJ)) is an isomorphism.
Let D be a positive divisor on A9 the exceptional set in Af. Let D' be the total
transform of D via a'. Then a*: T(M, 0(m# - £)) -^ T(M\ Q{mK - mJ - D'))
is also an isomorphism.
Let D be a cycle on ^ such that D -At 0 for all irreducible components At of
yl and such that K D has no base points on Af. By Theorem 3.1, it suffices to
take D = -K. Recall that K^ denotes the canonical sheaf on 91tr, and also on
911. We shall show below that, using the above identification a*9 (4.7) and (4.8),
every element of T(Af, Q(mK - D)) lifts to an element of T(M9 © ( m ^ ) ) . (This
was shown for D = 0 by Shepherd-Barron [46, Theorem 12, pp. 14-15].) Since
dim T(M, 6(mK))/T(M9 Q{mK - D)) = x(-™K + D) - x(~™K)9
this will prove the lemma.
For T* E T(Af, 6(mK 2))), let T' : = a*(r*). Let T denote the canonical
extension of T' by 0 to T(Af0, 6(K0)). By [13], T(M96(rnK - D)) is finitely
generated over T(V9 &v). By induction on m, m ^ 1, we shall find {r*}9 1 j
