Cremona transformations and derived equivalences of K3 surfaces

  • Brendan Hassett (a1) and Kuan-Wen Lai (a2)
Abstract

We exhibit a Cremona transformation of $\mathbb{P}^{4}$ such that the base loci of the map and its inverse are birational to K3 surfaces. The two K3 surfaces are derived equivalent but not isomorphic to each other. As an application, we show that the difference of the two K3 surfaces annihilates the class of the affine line in the Grothendieck ring of varieties.
