In order to study the wall-crossing formula of Donaldson type invariants on the blown-up plane, Nakajima–Yoshioka constructed a sequence of blow-up/blow-down diagrams con- necting the moduli space of torsion free framed sheaves on projective plane, and that on its blow-up. In this paper, we prove that Nakajima–Yoshioka’s diagram realizes the mini- mal model program. Furthermore, we obtain a fully-faithful embedding between the derived categories of these moduli spaces.

Koseki 1 Introduction 1.1 Main result The wall crossing formulas of Donaldson-type invariants have been investigated in various papers. For example, the behavior of Donaldson invariants of the moduli spaces of rank two stable sheaves on rational surfaces under the variations of polarizations are studied by Ellingsrud and Göttsche [10], Friedman and Qin [11]. As another example, Nakajima and Yoshioka [21–23] studied the difference of invariants of framed sheaves on the projective 2 2 plane P and that on its blow-up P at a point. To do so, they constructed a sequence of diagrams m m+1 ··· M (v) M (v) ··· (1.1) − + ξ ξ m m m,m+1 M (v) 2 2 connecting the moduli space on P and that on the blow-up P . The intermediate models M (v) also have modular interpretations; they are the moduli spaces of m-stable sheaves (see m,m+1 Deﬁnition 3.1). Similarly, the space M (v) parametrizes m-stable and (m + 1)-stable sheaves with various Chern characters. In these examples, the moduli spaces appearing in wall crossing diagrams are smooth and birational to each other. In fact, in the case studied in [10,11], the moduli spaces are connected by standard ﬂips. In the case of [21–23], their geometry is more complicated. Indeed, Nakajima–Yoshioka proved that the contracted loci of the morphisms ξ have strat- iﬁcations (called Brill–Noether stratiﬁcations) such that each stratum has the structure of a Grassmannian bundle. The aim of this paper is the further study of birational geometric properties of the diagram (1.1). In particular, we show that it is an instance of the minimal model program. Theorem 1.1 (Theorem 4.7) The diagram (1.1) realizes a minimal model program for the moduli space of framed torsion free sheaves on the blow-up P . The program ends with the minimal model, the moduli space of framed torsion free sheaves on P , which is a hyper- Ka ¨hler manifold. We will also verify Bondal–Orlov [5], Kawamata’s [15] D/K equivalence conjecture for these moduli spaces: Theorem 1.2 (Theorem 4.9) For each integer m ∈ Z , we have a fully faithful embedding ≥0 b m b m+1 D (M (v)) → D (M (v)) between the derived categories. In particular, we have an embedding b b D (M 2)→ D (M ), P ˆ 2 2 where M , M denote the moduli spaces of torsion free framed sheaves on P , P , respec- ˆ 2 tively. So we get an interesting relationship among wall-crossing formulas for Donaldson type invariants, birational geometry, and derived categories. We can also consider the moduli space of Gieseker stable sheaves on a smooth projective surface and that on its blow-up (see Theorem 4.10 for the precise statement): 123 Birational geometry of moduli spaces of perverse coherent… Theorem 1.3 Let S be a smooth projective surface, S the blow-up of S at a point. Under certain numerical conditions, the MMP for the moduli space M of Gieseker stable sheaves on S is reduced to MMP for the moduli M on S. Furthermore, there exists a fully faithful embedding b b D (M )→ D (M ) between their derived categories. For instance, we can apply the above theorem when S is a del Pezzo surface. 1.2 Strategy of the proof To prove our main result Theorem 1.1, we will compute the normal bundles of the ﬁbers explicitly, following the idea from [10,11]. Although the geometry of the diagram (1.1)is more complicated compared to the one considered in [10,11], it turns out their method still works in our setting. Actually, we are able to describe the normal bundle of each Brill– Noether stratum explicitly. Then we will see that the diagram realizes the MMP when we decrease the stability parameter m ∈ Z . ≥0 Furthermore, the normal bundle computation enables us to reduce the construction of the fully faithful embedding between derived categories to the formal local case; the latter is already handled in the paper [8] and hence we can prove Theorem 4.9. 1.3 Relation to existing works In [17], the author studied birational geometry of the Hilbert scheme of two points on blow- ups. The main result of the present paper is an extension to the completely general setting. There are several works investigating birational geometry and derived categories of moduli spaces. For a standard ﬂip between moduli spaces obtained in [10,11], Ballard [4] constructed a semi-orthogonal decomposition (SOD) of their derived categories. Recently, Toda [24,25] introduced the notion of d-critical birational geometry, which is a certain virtual analogue of usual birational geometry. It is shown that if two smooth varieties are connected by a simple d-critical ﬂip, then we have an SOD of their derived categories. See [18,25] for interesting examples of d-critical ﬂips. The SODs obtained in the papers [4], [25] can be considered as categoriﬁcations of wall crossing formulas for Donaldson type invariants, Donaldson–Thomas type invariants, respectively. It would be interesting to describe the semi-orthogonal complements of the embedding in our Theorem 4.9, which would give a categoriﬁcation of Nakajima–Yoshioka’s wall crossing formula. 1.4 Organization of the paper The paper is organized as follows. In Sect. 2, we collect some terminology and useful lemmas from birational geometry and derived categories. In Sect. 3, we recall the result of Nakajima– Yoshioka. In Sect. 4, we prove our main results. In Sect. 5,wegivesomeexplicit examples. 123 N. Koseki Notation and convention In this paper, we always work over the complex number ﬁeld C. b b • For a variety X,wedenoteby D (X ) := D (Coh(X )) the bounded derived category of coherent sheaves on X. • For a proper morphism f : M → N between varieties and objects E , F ∈ D (M ),we denote by Ext (E , F ) the q-th derived functor of Hom (E , F ) := f Hom(E , F ). f ∗ • For coherent sheaves E , F on a variety, we deﬁne hom(E , F ) := dim Hom(E , F ) and i i ext (E , F ) := dim Ext (E , F ). • For a vector bundle V on a variety and an integer i > 0, we denote by Gr(i , V) the Grassmann bundle of i-dimensional subbundles of V. 2 Preliminaries 2.1 Terminologies from birational geometry In this subsection, we recall some notions from birational geometry. The standard reference for this subsection is [16]. Deﬁnition 2.1 Let φ : X → Z be a projective morphism between normal quasi-projective varieties. We say that φ is a K -positive (resp. K -negative) contraction if the following conditions hold: (1) φ O O , ∗ X Z (2) the canonical divisor K (resp. the anti-canonical divisor −K )is φ-ample. X X Deﬁnition 2.2 Let φ : X → Z be a K -negative contraction. (1) φ is called a divisorial (resp. ﬂipping) contraction if it is birational and the φ-exceptional locus has codimension one (resp. at least two). (2) φ is called a Mori ﬁber space if we have dim X > dim Z. (3) Assume that φ is a ﬂipping contraction. Then a ﬂip of φ is a K -positive birational + + + contraction φ : X → Z. We also call the birational map X X aﬂip. Deﬁnition 2.3 Let X be a quasi-projective variety with at worst terminal singularities. A minimal model program of X is a sequence of birational maps X = X X ··· X , 0 1 N such that (1) each birational map X X is either a divisorial contraction or a ﬂip, i i +1 (2) the variety X is either a minimal model (i.e. K is nef) or has a structure of a Mori N X ﬁber space. We do not give the deﬁnition of a terminal singularity, as we only consider smooth varieties in this paper. For the precise deﬁnition, see [16, Deﬁnition 2.34]. The following lemma is useful for our purpose: Lemma 2.4 [1, Proposition 3.7] Let X be a smooth variety, φ : X → Z a K -negative con- traction, and F ⊂ X a smooth φ-ﬁber. Assume that the following conditions hold: 123 Birational geometry of moduli spaces of perverse coherent… ∨ ∨ • the conormal bundle N := N is nef, F /X 1 i ∨ 1 i ∨ • H (F , T ⊗ Sym (N )) = H (F , N ⊗ Sym (N )) = 0 for i ≥ 1. Then the formal neighborhood of F in X is isomorphic to that of F in the total space of N , embedded as the zero section. 2.2 Fourier–Mukai functors In this subsection, we recall the deﬁnition and basic properties of Fourier–Mukai functors. The standard reference is [13]. Deﬁnition 2.5 Let X , Y be smooth quasi-projective varieties, and P ∈ D (X × Y ) be an object whose support is proper over Y.The Fourier–Mukai (FM) functor with kernel P is P b b the functor : D (X ) → D (Y ) deﬁned by b P ∗ L b D (X ) E → (E ) := R p p E ⊗ P ∈ D (Y ), Y ∗ where p : X × Y → X, p : X × Y → Y denote the projections. X Y Note that, in the above deﬁnition, we assume the object P has proper support over Y to ensure the associated FM functor preserves bounded complexes. Let us give a trivial example: Example 2.6 Let O be the structure sheaf of the diagonal ⊂ X ×X. Then the associated FM functor coincides with the identity functor id b . D (X ) P b b Let = : D (X ) → D (Y ) be a FM functor with kernel P.By[13, Proposition R b b 5.9], the right adjoint functor : D (Y ) → D (X ) is given by the FM functor with kernel ∨ ∗ P := P ⊗ p ω [dim X ]. R X Q b Similarly, the composition of two FM functors is again a FM functor: let : D (Y ) → b Q P b b D (Z ) be another FM functor. Then the composition ◦ : D (X ) → D (Z ) is a FM functor with kernel ∗ L ∗ b P ∗ Q := R p p P ⊗ p Q ∈ D (X × Z ), XZ ∗ XY YZ where p : X × Y × Z → X × Y , p : X × Y × Z → Y × Z, p : X × Y × Z → X × Z XY YZ XZ denote the projections, see [13, Proposition 5.10]. Now let us consider the adjoint map O P P P ∗P R R = id b → ◦ = . (2.1) D (X ) The following result tells us that it lifts to the morphism between FM kernels: P b b Proposition 2.7 [2, Theorem 3.2, Proposition 3.6] Let = : D (X ) → D (Y ) be a FM functor. Then there exists a morphism O → P ∗ P (2.2) in D (X × X ), which induces the adjoint map (2.1). We will use the following lemma in the proof of the main result: 123 N. Koseki Lemma 2.8 Let X , Y be smooth quasi-projective varieties, X → U, Y → U projective morphisms to a variety U. Take an object P ∈ D (X × Y ) supported on the ﬁber product X × Y . Denote by Q ∈ D (X × X ) the cone of the morphism O → P ∗ P in (2.2). U R The following statements hold: (1) The FM functor = is fully faithful if and only if Q = 0. ˆ ˆ (2) For a point p ∈ U, denote by U the completion of U at p. Denote by X the base p p change of X → U along U → U. Then Q = 0 if and only if Q ⊗ O = 0 p O X ×X ˆ ˆ X ×X p p for every p ∈ U. In particular, the FM functor is fully faithful if and only if the FM functors are fully faithful for all p ∈ U, whereweput P := P ⊗ O . ˆ ˆ p X ×Y X ×Y p p Proof (1) First observe that the functor is fully faithful if and only if the adjoint map (2.1) b (−) is an isomorphism. Let us take an object E ∈ D (X ). By applying (E ) to the exact triangle O → P ∗ P → Q, in D (X × X ), we obtain an exact triangle R Q E → ◦ (E ) → (E ) (2.3) b R b in D (X ). Hence if Q = 0, we have an isomorphism E − → ◦ (E ) for all E ∈ D (X ), i.e., is fully faithful. For the converse, assume that Q = 0. Then there exists a point x ∈ X such that Q := Q R Q| = 0. In particular, we have (O ) = Q = 0 and hence O = ◦ (O ) by {x }×X x x x x the exact triangle (2.3), i.e., the functor is not fully faithful. (2) The second assertion follows from the fact that the completion U → U is faithfully ﬂat. 2.3 Grassmannian flip Here we recall about geometry and the derived categories of Grassmannian ﬂips, which play important roles in this paper. We refer [3, Chapter II] for the details (see also [8, Section 1]). ± ± Let W be vector spaces. Take a positive integer i ≤ min{dim W }. Then the determinantal variety is deﬁned to be − ∨ + Z = Z := a ∈ Hom (W ) , W : rk(a) ≤ i , and its Springer resolution is deﬁned as + + − ∨ + + Y = Y := (a, V ) ∈ Hom (W ) , W × Gr(i , W ) : Image(a) ⊂ V . We have the following projections: + + Y Gr(i , W ) Z . + + + + The ﬁber of h : Y → Gr(i , W ) over a point V ∈ Gr(i , W ) is − ∨ − Hom (W ) , V = V ⊗ W . 123 Birational geometry of moduli spaces of perverse coherent… Hence we have an isomorphism + + − Y = Tot + S ⊗ W , Gr(i ,W ) + + + where S denotes the universal subbundle on Gr(i , W ). This shows that the variety Y is + − + + smooth of dimension i (dim W +dim W −i ). Moreover, the other projection φ : Y → Z is isomorphism over the open locus Z := {a ∈ Z : rk(a) = i }, therefore Y → Z is actually a resolution of singularities. On the other hand, we have canonical isomorphisms + ∨ − − + − ∨ + ∼ ∼ Hom (W ) , W W ⊗ W Hom (W ) , W , = = hence by replacing the roles of W in the above construction, we get a second resolution of singularities of the variety Z: − + − − Y = Tot + S ⊗ W Gr(i , W ) Gr(i ,W ) Z , − − where S denotes the universal subbundle of Gr(i , W ). Hence we obtain the diagram − + Y Y Z , which we call the Grassmannian ﬂip. The following lemma justiﬁes this notion: + − Lemma 2.9 Assume that dim W > dim W . Then the following statements hold: (1) The canonical bundles of Y are given as + − ±∗ ± ⊗±(dim W −dim W ) ω ± = h det(S ) . + − In particular, the morphism φ (resp. φ ) is a K -negative (resp. K -positive) contraction. − + − (2) When i = dim W , the morphism φ is a divisorial contraction and the morphism φ is an isomorphism. − + − (3) When i < dim W , the birational map Y Y is a ﬂip. Proof (1) We have the following exact sequence ±∗ ± ∓ ±∗ 0 → h S ⊗ W → T ± → h T ± → 0, Y Gr(i ,W ) ±∗ ± and the tangent bundle of the Grassmannian variety is given by T ± S ⊗ Q , Gr(i ,W ) ± ± where Q denotes the universal quotient bundle of Gr(i , W ). Hence we obtain ⊗−dim W ±∗ ± ± ⊗(dim W −i ) ±∗ ⊗i ω ± h det S ⊗ det(S ) ⊗ det(Q ) (2.4) ± ∓ ⊗−i ±∗ ± ⊗(dim W −dim W ) ± ± = h det(S ) ⊗ det(S ) ⊗ det(Q ) . 123 N. Koseki Moreover, the tautological sequence ± ± ± 0 → S → W ⊗ O → Q → 0 Gr(i ,W ) shows that ± ± det(S ) ⊗ det(Q ) O ± . Gr(i ,W ) Now Eq. (2.4) becomes ± ∓ ±∗ ± ⊗(dim W −dim W ) ω ± = h det(S ) as required. To prove (2) and (3), we need to determine the dimensions of the φ -exceptional loci. First note that we have a sequence of closed immersions {0}= Z ⊂ Z ⊂ ··· Z ⊂ Z = Z , 0 1 i −1 i ± −1 ± −1 and we have dim(φ ) (Z ) ≤ dim(φ ) (Z ) for all j ≤ i − 1. j i −1 Let us take a point a ∈ Z \ Z . By deﬁnition, the subspace V := Image(a) ⊂ W i −1 i −2 a ± ± −1 has dimension i − 1. The ﬁbers Y := (φ ) (a) are ± ± ± ∼ ∼ Y V ∈ Gr(i , W ) : V ⊂ V Gr(1, W /V ). = = a a Hencewehave ± ± dim Exc(φ ) = dim Z + dim Gr(1, W /V ) i −1 a ± ± = dim Y + dim Gr(1, W /V ) i −1 ± ∓ ± = (i − 1)(dim W + dim W − i + 1) + (dim W − (i − 1) − 1) ± ∓ ∓ = i (dim W + dim W − i ) + i − dim W − 1 ± ∓ = dim Y − (dim W + 1 − i ), and the assertions (2) and (3) hold. For the derived categories of Y , we have the following result: + − Theorem 2.10 [8, Theorem D] Assume that dim W > dim W . Then the FM functor O b − b + : D (Y )→ D (Y ) − + is fully faithful, where we put W := Y × Y . − + ± Remark 2.11 When dim W = dim W , the canonical bundles of Y are trivial, and we call + − O the birational map Y Y the Grassmannian ﬂop. In this case, the FM functor is an equivalence, which is treated also in [9]. 2.4 Bott type vanishing For later use, we prove some vanishing results on cohomology groups of certain vector bundles on the Grassmannian varieties. Let W be a vector space of dimension n,and i ∈ Z >0 be a positive integer with i < n. We consider the Grassmannian variety G = Gr(i , W ). Denote by S, Q the universal sub and quotient bundles, respectively. 123 Birational geometry of moduli spaces of perverse coherent… ⊕s An element β = (β ,...,β ) ∈ Z is called a weight if it satisﬁes β ≥ β ≥ ··· ≥ 1 s 1 2 ⊕i ⊕n−i β ≥ β . For a given pair α = (β, γ ) of weights β ∈ Z and γ ∈ Z ,wedeﬁne the s−1 s vector bundle V (α) as ∨ ∨ V (α) := K (S ) ⊕ K (Q ), β γ where K (−), K (−) denote the Weyl functors (cf. [26, Section 2.1]). β γ ⊕n k ∨ Example 2.12 (1) For α = (k, 0,..., 0) ∈ Z with k ≥ 0, we have V (α) = Sym (S ). ⊕n (2) For α = (0,..., 0, −1) ∈ Z ,wehave V (α) = Q. We will use the following version of Bott vanishing: ⊕n Theorem 2.13 Assume that an element α = (β ,...,β ,γ ,...,γ ) ∈ Z satisﬁes β ≥ 1 i i +1 n 1 ...β ≥ γ ≥ ··· ≥ γ . Then we have the vanishing i i +1 n H (G, V (α)) = 0 for all j > 0. Proof This is a special case of [26, Corollary 4.1.9 (2)]. As an application of the above Bott type vanishing, we have the following: Lemma 2.14 We have the following vanishing of cohomology groups: 1 k ∨ (1) H G, T ⊗ Sym (S ) = 0 for all k ≥ 0. 1 k ∨ (2) H G, S ⊗ Sym (S ) = 0 for all k > 0. 1 k ∨ (3) H G, Sym (S ) = 0 for all k > 0. Proof We only prove the ﬁrst assertion, since the other can be proved by similar computations. Recall that we have T = S ⊗ Q, and hence k ∨ ∨ k ∨ T ⊗ Sym (S ) = S ⊗ Sym (S ) ⊗ Q. Moreover, by Pieri formula (cf. [26, Corollary 2.3.5]), we have ∨ k ∨ ∨ ∨ S ⊗ Sym (S ) K (S ) ⊕ K (S ), ν ν 1 2 ⊕i where ν = (k, 1, 0,..., 0), ν = (k + 1, 0,..., 0) ∈ Z (see also [26, Proposition 2.1.18] 1 2 for the relation between the Schur and the Weyl functors). Hence we have k ∨ T ⊗ Sym (S ) = V (α ) ⊕ V (α ), G 1 2 ⊕n where we put α = (ν , 0,..., 0, −1) ∈ Z for t = 0, 1. Hence by Theorem 2.13,we t t 1 k ∨ obtain the vanishing H G, T ⊗ Sym (S ) = 0 as required. 3 Framed sheaves on the blow-up 3.1 ADHM description and wall crossing 2 2 2 2 Let us consider the projective plane P = C ∪ l and its blow-up f : P → P at the origin 2 2 0 ∈ C . Denote by C ⊂ P the f -exceptional curve. In this subsection, we recall the notion of m-stable sheaves on P with framing at l studied by Nakajima–Yoshioka [21]. 123 N. Koseki Deﬁnition 3.1 Fix a non-negative integer m ∈ Z .Let (E,) be a framed sheaf on P , i.e., ≥0 ⊕ ch (E ) 2 0 let E be a coherent sheaf on P and : E | − → O a framing at l . We say that l ∞ (E,) is m-stable if the following conditions hold: (1) Hom(E (−mC ), O (−1)) = 0, (2) Hom(O , E (−mC )) = 0, (3) E is torsion free outside C. Remark 3.2 Let E be an m-stable framed sheaf. By [22, Proposition 1.9 (1)], the condition (1) in the above deﬁnition implies that the sheaf E (−mC ) is an object of the category 2 2 Per(P /P ) of perverse coherent sheaves introduced by Bridgeland [6]. Hence we may also 2 2 think of m-stable sheaves as stable objects in the category Per(P /P ) ⊗ O(mC ). m 2 We denote by M (v) the ﬁne moduli space of m-stable framed sheaves on P with Chern character v. Let us recall the ADHM description of framed sheaves on P ; Consider the following quiver Q B ,B 1 2 0 1 i j with the relation I : B dB − B dB + ij = 0. 1 2 2 1 For a given Chern character 2i 2 v = (r , −kC , ch ) ∈ H (P , Q), i =0 we associate the dimension vector d = (d , d , d ) by the following formula: 0 1 ∞ d = r , k = d − d , ch =− (d + d ). (3.1) ∞ 0 1 2 0 1 2∗ 2 Theorem 3.3 [21] Let us ﬁx a Chern character v = (r , −kC , ch ) ∈ H (P , Q) with ⊕3 r > 0, k ≥ 0, and associate the vector d ∈ Z as in (3.1). Then, in the region := ≥0 (ζ ,ζ ) ∈ R : ζ > 0 of King’s stability parameters for (Q, I )-representations, the walls 0 1 0 are classiﬁed as W := {(ζ ,ζ ) ∈ : mζ + (m + 1)ζ = 0} , m ∈ Z . m 0 1 0 1 ≥0 For m ≥ 1,denoteby C the chamber between the walls W and W , and put m m m−1 C := (ζ ,ζ ) ∈ R : ζ ,ζ < 0 . The following statements hold: 0 0 1 0 1 (1) For each integer m ∈ Z , and a stability condition ζ ∈ C , there exists an isomorphism ≥0 m m ζ ζ M (v) = M (Q, I ; d).Here, M (Q, I ; d) denotes the moduli space of ζ -stable (Q, I)-representations with dimension vector d. Furthermore, these moduli spaces are either empty or smooth quasi-projective varieties of dimension d (d + d ) − (d − d ) . ∞ 0 1 0 1 123 Birational geometry of moduli spaces of perverse coherent… (2) We have a natural morphism M (v) → M (r , 0, ch ), E → f E , 2 ∗ which is an isomorphism when k = 0.Here, M 2 (r , 0, ch ) denotes the moduli space of torsion free framed sheaves on P . (3) There exists an integer m ∈ Z such that for every integer m ≥ m ,wehavean 0 ≥0 0 isomorphism M (v) = M (v), where M (v) denotes the moduli space of torsion free framed sheaves on P . (4) For each integer m ∈ Z and a stability condition ζ ∈ W , there exists a set-theoretic ≥0 m bijection ζ m,m+1 m m+1 M (Q, I ; d) = M (v) := M (v − ic ) ∩ M (v − ic ) , m m i ≥0 whereweput c := ch(O (−m − 1)). m C Proof The classiﬁcation of walls is explained in [21,Section4.3]; Thestatements(1),(2),(3) are proved in Theorems 1.5 and 2.5, Proposition 7.4, and Proposition 7.1 in [21], respectively. Let us now consider the statement (4). By [21, Section 4.3, Proposition 5.3], the wall W corresponds to the destabilizing object O (−m − 1) in the following sense: for any stability condition ζ ∈ W on the wall and any ζ -semistable object E, its S-equivalence class is ⊕i of the form O (−m − 1) ⊕ E for some non-negative integer i ≥ 0and m-stable and (m + 1)-stable sheaf E with ch(E ) = v −ic . Hence as a closed point in the moduli space, we have ⊕i ζ [E]=[O (−m − 1) ⊕ E ]∈ M (Q, I ; d), ζ m i.e., the closed point [E]∈ M (Q, I ; d) is uniquely determined by the sheaf E ∈ M (v − m+1 ic ) ∩ M (v − ic ). Hence we have the bijection as stated. m m By the above theorem, we have the diagram as in (1.1) connecting the moduli spaces M 2 (r , 0, ch ) and M (r , −kC , ch ). 2 ˆ 2 2 3.2 Brill–Noether loci Next we recall the Brill–Noether stratiﬁcations on the moduli spaces and the determination of the ﬁbers over ξ . For each integer i ∈ Z , let us consider the following locally closed ≥0 subschemes: m m M (v) := (E,) ∈ M (v) : hom(O (−m − 1), E ) = i , i C m+1 m+1 M (v) := (E,) ∈ M (v) : hom(E , O (−m − 1)) = i . i C m,m+1 m We call them as the Brill–Noether strata.Wealsodenoteas M (v) := M (v −ic ) ∩ i m m+1 M (v − ic ). Let us take an object E ∈ M (v).By[22, Proposition 3.15], we have the exact sequence ev 0 → Hom(O (−m − 1), E ) ⊗ O (−m − 1) − → E → E →0(3.2) C C m,m+1 − for some object E ∈ M (v). By (the proof of) Theorem 3.3 (4), we have ξ (E ) = E , − m m,m+1 where ξ : M (v) → M (v) is the morphism in the diagram (1.1). Hence the morphism 123 N. Koseki − − m m,m+1 ξ restricts to the morphism ξ : M (v) → M (v) . Moreover, from the exact i i m,i sequence (3.2), we see that an m-stable sheaf E is (m + 1)-stable if and only if the vanishing Hom(O (−m − 1), E ) = 0 holds. Hence we have m m m+1 m M (v) = M (v) ∩ M (v) ⊂ M (v) and it is an open immersion. Let us denote by 2 m,m+1 E ∈ Coh P × M (v) the universal family, and let 2 m,m+1 m,m+1 2 m,m+1 2 ˆ ˆ ˆ p : P × M (v) → M (v) , q : P × M (v) → P i i i be the projections. The following theorem shows the structure of the morphism ξ in terms of the Brill–Noether strata: Theorem 3.4 [22, Proposition 3.31, Proposition 3.32] The morphisms − m m,m+1 ξ : M (v) → M (v) , i i m,i + m+1 m,m+1 ξ : M (v) → M (v) i i m,i are identiﬁed with the morphisms 1 ∗ m,m+1 Gr i , Ext (E , q O (−m − 1)) → M (v) , C i p i 1 ∗ m,m+1 Gr i , Ext (q O (−m − 1), E ) → M (v) , C i p i respectively. In particular, every ﬁber of the morphisms ξ is the Grassmannian variety. 4 Birational geometry of moduli spaces In this section, we will prove that the diagram (1.1) realizes the MMP. The key ingredient is to compute the normal bundles of the ﬁbers of ξ , following the arguments of Ellingsrud and Göttsche [10] and Friedman and Qin [11]. We keep the notations as in the previous section. Fix integers m, i ∈ Z .Let ≥0 − 2 m + 2 m+1 ˆ ˆ E ∈ Coh(P × M (v)), E ∈ Coh(P × M (v)) (4.1) be the universal families, and let − 1 ∗ + 1 ∗ W := Ext (E , q O (−m − 1)), W := Ext (q O (−m − 1), E ) (4.2) C C i p i i p i m,m+1 be vector bundles on M (v) .

Hence E | − coincides with the universal extension on P × G , and the ﬁrst assertion follows. The proof of the second assertion is similar. 4.1 Birational geometry of moduli spaces The goal of this subsection is to prove the following: Theorem 4.2 For any integers m, i ∈ Z , we have isomorphisms ≥0 − + −∗ N − S ⊗ π W , m = G /M (v) i i + +∗ − N + S ⊗ π W . m+1 = G /M (v) i i See (4.2), (4.3), and (4.4) for the notations used in the above theorem. We divide the proof of the theorem into several lemmas. Lemma 4.3 There exists a natural morphism − −∗ + δ : T m | − → S ⊗ π W . M (v) G i i Proof By the deformation-obstruction theory for framed sheaves (cf. [7, Theorem 4.3]), the tangent bundle of M (v) is given as 1 − − m T = Ext E , E (−l × M (v)) . M (v) ∞ Now, applying the functor Hom − (E | −,(−) ⊗ O(−l × G )) to the exact sequence g ∞ (4.5), we get the morphism 1 − − − 1 − −∗ − δ : Ext E | − , E | − (−l × G ) → Ext E | −,π E (−l × G ) . 1 − ∞ − ∞ g G G i g G i i i i −∗ On the other hand, applying the functor Hom − (−,π E (−l × G )) to the exact g ∞ i i sequence (4.5), we get the morphism 1 − −∗ − δ : Ext E | −,π E (−l × G ) → 2 ∞ g G i i 1 −∗ −∨ −∗ −∗ Ext g S ⊗ h O (−m − 1), π E , − C g i i 123 N. Koseki since O (l ) = O .Notethatwehave C ∞ C 1 −∗ −∨ −∗ −∗ − −∗ + Ext g S ⊗ h O (−m − 1), π E S ⊗ π W . − C = g i i i i By the above arguments, we have a morphism − −∗ + δ := δ ◦ δ : T | − → S ⊗ π W . 2 1 M (v) i i In the following lemma, we show that our morphism δ is surjective, by checking it on − m,m+1 the ﬁbers of the morphism π : G → M (v) in (4.3). By abuse of notation, we also denote by δ ,δ their restrictions to the π -ﬁbers. 1 2 m,m+1 − 1 Lemma 4.4 Let us take an object E ∈ M (v) and put W := Ext (E , O (−m −1)), i C + 1 − W := Ext (O (−m − 1), E ). Take also an i-dimensional subspace V ⊂ W , and let − m E ∈ M (v) be the associated universal extension. Then we have the following exact sequences: α δ 1 1 − 1 − − 1 − Hom(V , W /V ) − → Ext (E , E (−l )) − → Ext (E , E (−l )) → 0, ∞ ∞ (4.6) α δ 2 2 1 1 − + Ext (E , E (−l )) − → Ext (E , E (−l )) − → V ⊗ W → 0. ∞ ∞ m,m+1 m,m+1 −mC Proof By replacing the object E ∈ M (v) with E ⊗O (−mC ) ∈ M (v.e ) , i 2 i 0,1 we may assume m = 0. Let us take an object E ∈ M (v) and an i-dimensional subspace V ⊂ Ext (E , O (−1)).Let ∨ − 0 → V ⊗ O (−1) → E → E → 0 (4.7) be the associated universal extension. By applying the functor Hom(E ,(−) ⊗ O(−l )), we have the exact sequence 1 − ∨ 1 − − 1 − Ext (E , V ⊗ O (−1)) → Ext (E , E (−l )) − → Ext (E , E (−l )) C ∞ ∞ 2 − ∨ → Ext (E , V ⊗ O (−1)). Note that we have used the fact that O (−l ) = O . By Serre duality and the 0-stability of C ∞ C E ,wehavethe vanishing 2 − − ∨ Ext (E , O (−1)) Hom(O , E ) = 0 C C and hence δ is surjective. Furthermore, by applying the functor Hom(−, O (−1)) to the 1 C exact sequence (4.7) we have the exact sequence − 1 − 1 ∨ 0 → V → W → Ext (E , O (−1)) → Ext (V ⊗ O (−1), O (−1)) = 0. C C C Hencewehave 1 − ∨ − Ext (E , V ⊗ O (−1)) = Hom(V , W /V ) as required. Similarly, applying the functor Hom(−, E (−l )) to the exact sequence (4.7), we obtain α δ 2 2 1 1 − + Ext (E , E (−l )) − → Ext (E , E (−l )) − → V ⊗ W ∞ ∞ → Ext (E , E (−l )). By Lemma 4.5 below, we have the vanishing Ext (E , E (−l )) = 0 and hence δ is ∞ 2 surjective. 123 Birational geometry of moduli spaces of perverse coherent… Lemma 4.5 Let F be a 0-stable sheaf. Then we have the vanishing Ext (F , F (−l )) = 0. Proof By Serre duality, we have 2 ∨ Ext (F , F (−l )) = Hom(F (−l ), F ⊗ ω ) . ∞ ∞ 2 Moreover, as in the proof of [22,Lemma 3.6],wehaveaninjection ∨∨ ∨∨ Hom (F (−l ), F ⊗ ω )→ Hom 2 ( f F ) (−l ), ( f F ) ⊗ ω 2 , ∞ ∗ ∞ ∗ ˆ 2 ˆ 2 P P P P 2 2 ∨∨ where f : P → P is the blow-up morphism. Putting G := ( f F ) , it is enough to show Hom(G(−l ), G ⊗ ω 2 ) = Hom(G, G(−2)) = 0. By applying the functor Hom(G, −) to the exact sequence 0 → G(−3) → G(−2) → G(−2)| → 0, (4.8) we obtain 0 → Hom (G, G(−3)) → Hom (G, G(−2)) → Hom G, G(−2)| . (4.9) ⊕ ch (G) On the other hand, as G is a framed sheaf on P ,wehave G| = O . Hence we ∞ 2 have Hom G, G(−2)| Hom G| , G(−2)| l = l l ∞ ∞ ∞ ⊕ ch (G) Hom O , O (−2) = l l ∞ ∞ = 0. Combining with the exact sequence (4.9), we conclude that Hom(G, G(−2)) = Hom(G, G(−3)). By tensoring the exact sequence (4.8) with O (−i ) and repeating the above argument, we can inductively prove the isomorphism Hom(G, G(−2)) Hom(G, G(−i − 3)) for all i ≥ 0. By Serre duality, we obtain 2 ∨ ∨ Hom(G, G(−i − 3)) H (G ⊗ G (i )) , and the right hand side vanishes for sufﬁciently large i > 0, since O 2 (1) is ample. We conclude that Hom(G, G(−2)) = 0 as required. We also need the following: Lemma 4.6 We have the equalities m − − −∗ + dim M (v) = dim G + rk S ⊗ π W , i i i m+1 + + +∗ − dim M (v) = dim G + rk S ⊗ π W . i i i 123 N. Koseki Proof We only prove the ﬁrst equality. By the dimension formula for the framed moduli space in Theorem 3.3 (1), we have m 2 dim M (v) = d (d + d ) − (d − d ) ∞ 0 1 0 1 (4.10) =−2r ch −k , where the vector (d , d , d ) is deﬁned as in (3.1). On the other hand, for any object E ∈ 0 1 ∞ m,m+1 M (v) ,wehave − m,m+1 1 dim G = dim M (v) + i ext (E , O (−m − 1)) − i i C (4.11) = dim M (v − ic ) − i χ(E , O (−m − 1)) + i , m C − m,m+1 where the ﬁrst equality follows from the fact that π : G → M (v) is a Grassmannian bundle deﬁned as in (4.3). For the second equality, ﬁrst observe that we have χ(E , O (−m − 1)) =− ext (E , O (−m − 1)) since E is m-stable and (m + 1)-stable. Moreover, the inclusion m,m+1 m m+1 m M (v) = M (v − ic ) ∩ M (v − ic ) ⊂ M (v − ic ) i m m m is an open immersion and hence the second equality in (4.11) holds. Similarly, by using the m-stability and (m + 1)-stability of E ,wehave − −∗ + 1 rk S ⊗ π W = i ext (O (−m − 1), E ) i i (4.12) =−i · χ(O (−m − 1), E ) + − (see (4.2)and (4.4) for the deﬁnitions of W and S ). Combining the equalities (4.10), i i (4.11)and (4.12), we obtain − − + −∗ dim G + rk S ⊗ π W i i i = dim M (v − ic ) − i i + χ(E , O (−m − 1)) + χ(O (−m − 1), E ) m C C =−2r ch +i m + − (k + i ) − i − i χ(E , O (−m − 1)) + χ(O (−m − 1), E ) C C 2 m =−2r ch −k = dim M (v), where the second equality holds since we have v − ic = v − i ch(O (−m − 1)) = r , −(k + i )C , ch +i m + , m C 2 and for the third equality, we use the Serre duality χ(E , O (−m − 1)) = χ(O (−m), E ), C C together with the Riemann–Roch theorem −χ(O (−m), E ) = rm + k + i . Now we begin the proof of Theorem 4.2. Proof of Theorem 4.2 We only prove the ﬁrst assertion. By Lemmas 4.3 and 4.4,wehavea surjective morphism − −∗ + δ : T m | − → S ⊗ π W . M (v) G i i 123 Birational geometry of moduli spaces of perverse coherent… We need to show the isomorphism T − ker(δ). Let the notations be as in Lemma 4.4. By Lemma 4.6, the vector spaces T − G and ker(δ − ) E E are of the same dimension. Hence it is enough to show that the composition − E m 1 T − G → T − M (v) − − → Ext (V ⊗ O (−m − 1), E ) E E C is zero. Indeed, if this is the case, then we have T − G = ker(δ − ), which induces a E E surjection T − ker(δ) between torsion free sheaves of the same rank: it should be an isomorphism. We have the exact sequence − − m,m+1 0 → Hom(V , W /V ) → T − G → T M (v) → 0. E E We can see that the composition − − m Hom(V , W /V ) → T − G → T − M (v) E E coincides with the morphism α in the exact sequence (4.6). In particular, it becomes zero after composing with δ . Hence the morphism m + − − T G → T M (v) − → V ⊗ W E E m,m+1 m,m+1 + factors through T M (v) . Similarly, the morphism T M (v) → V ⊗ W i i E E coincides with δ ◦ α , which is zero by the second exact sequence in (4.6). We conclude that T − G = ker(δ − ) as required. E E Now we have the following theorem: 2∗ 2 Theorem 4.7 Fix a Chern character of the form v = (r , 0, ch ) ∈ H (P , Q). Then the diagram (1.1) is a minimal model program for the moduli space M (v) of framed torsion ˆ 2 free sheaves on the blow-up P . The program ends with the minimal model, the moduli space M 2 (r , 0, ch ) of framed torsion free sheaves on P , which is a hyper-Ka ¨hler manifold. + − Proof We claim that for each m ∈ Z , the morphism ξ (resp. ξ )isa K -negative (resp. ≥0 m m K -positive) contraction (cf. Deﬁnition 2.1). By Lemma 2.9 and Theorem 4.2, it is enough to show the inequality + − rk W > rk W i i (see (4.2) for the diﬁnitions of W ), which is equivalent to the inequality 1 1 ext (O (−m − 1), E )> ext (E , O (−m − 1)). C C Now the assertion directly follows from the Riemann–Roch theorem. Explicitly, we have 1 1 ext (O (−m − 1), E ) − ext (E , O (−m − 1)) C C = χ(E , O (−m − 1)) − χ(O (−m − 1), E ) (4.13) C C = r . To see that the moduli space M (r , 0, ch ) is hyper-Kähler, recall that the space M 2 (r , 0, ch ) is isomorphic to Nakajima’s quiver variety associated with the quiver with one vertex and one loop [20, Chapter 2]. By the general fact that Nakajima’s quiver varieties are hyper-Kähler [12,19], so is the variety M 2 (r , 0, ch ). 123 N. Koseki From the arguments above, we can also deduce the following result: 2∗ 2 Proposition 4.8 Let us take a Chern character v = (r , 0, ch ) ∈ H (P , Q). The following statements hold. (1) For every integer m ≥ 1, the morphism ξ is a small contraction. (2) The morphism ξ is a divisorial contraction. + − Proof By Lemma 4.6 and Eq. (4.13), we have the inequality dim G > dim G . Hence it is i i enough to estimate the dimension of G . By Lemma 4.6,wehave + m+1 + +∗ − codim(G , M (v)) = rk S ⊗ π W i i i 1 2 = i ext (E , O (−m − 1)) = rim + i . ± + It follows that for each m ≥ 1, the morphism ξ is a small contraction, while ξ is a divisorial contraction. 4.2 Fully faithful embedding between derived categories As an application of Theorem 4.2, we show the existence of the fully faithful embed- m m+1 m ding between the derived categories of the moduli spaces M (v), M (v).Let W := m m+1 M (v) × m,m+1 M (v) be the ﬁber product. M (v) 2∗ 2 Theorem 4.9 Let us ﬁx a Chern character v = (r , 0, ch ) ∈ H (P , Q). Then for each integer m ∈ Z , we have the fully faithful functor ≥0 O m b m b m+1 = : D (M (v)) → D (M (v)) whose Fourier–Mukai kernel is O . In particular, we have a fully faithful embedding b b D (M 2 (r , 0, ch )) → D (M (r , 0, ch )). 2 2 2 P ˆ Proof By Lemma 2.8, we can reduce the statement to the formal completion at a point m,m+1 [E ]∈ M (v). We claim that the diagram (1.1) is formally locally isomorphic to the Grassmannian ﬂip m,m+1 apperedinSect. 2.3, by using Lemma 2.8. Let us take an object [E ]∈ M (v) and put 1 − 1 + 1 U := Ext (E (−l ), E ), W := Ext (E , O (−m − 1)), W := Ext (O (−m − 1), E ). ∞ C C Recall that the ﬁbers of ξ are the Grassmannian varieties ± −1 ± ± (ξ ) ([E ]) = G (E ) := Gr(i , W ). By Theorem 4.2, their normal bundles are given as − + ⊕ dim U N − m = S ⊗ W ⊕ O , G (E )/M (v) + − ⊕ dim U N + m+1 = S ⊗ W ⊕ O . G (E )/M (v) ± ± Here, S denotes the tautological subbundles on G (E ). First note that the conormal bundle N is nef as it is globally generated. Combining with Lemma 2.14, we can + m+1 G (E )/M (v) + m+1 apply Lemma 2.8 to G (E ) ⊂ M (v). Moreover, its ﬂip is unique by [16, Corollary 6.4]. We conclude that the formal completion of the diagram (1.1) is isomorphic to the formal 123 Birational geometry of moduli spaces of perverse coherent… completion of the diagram − + Y × U Y × U (4.14) Z × U at a point (0, 0) ∈ Z × U. Here, varieties Y and Z are deﬁned as − − + Y := Tot − (S ⊗ W ), G (E ) + + − Y := Tot + (S ⊗ W ), G (E ) − ∨ + Z := a ∈ Hom((W ) , W ) : rk a ≤ i (see Sect. 2.3). By Theorem 2.10, we have the fully faithful functor loc b − b + : D (Y )→ D (Y ) − + whose Fourier–Mukai kernel is the structure sheaf of the ﬁber product Y × Y . Hence b m b m+1 globally, the functor : D (M (v)) → D (M (v)) is fully faithful. 4.3 Projective case Let S be a smooth projective surface, f : S → S be the blow-up at a point. Let H be an ample divisor on S. In this setting, we can consider the m-stability for coherent sheaves E on S (cf. [22]), by replacing the condition (3) in Deﬁnition 3.1 with (3)’ f (E (−mC )) is μ -stable. ∗ H 2∗ Let us ﬁx a cohomology class w = (w ,w ,w ) ∈ H (S, Q) which is in the image of 0 1 2 ∗ 2∗ the Chern character map, and v := f w ∈ H (S, Q). Assume the following conditions hold: • K .H < 0, • w > 0, • gcd(w , H .w ) = 1. 0 1 Then by [22, Corollary 3.7], the moduli space M (v) of m-stable sheaves with Chern char- acter v is smooth. Moreover, the analogous results as Theorems 3.3 and 3.4 hold. More precisely, the moduli spaces M (v) satisfy the following properties: • M (v) has the Brill–Noether stratiﬁcation as in Sect. 3.2 by [22, Propositions 3.31 and 3.32]. • For m = 0, we have an isomorphism f : M (v) − → M (w),where M (v) denotes the ∗ H H moduli space of Gieseker stable sheaves on S with respect to the polarization H,by[22, Proposition 3.3]. • For m 0, we have an isomorphism M (v) M ∗ (v),where M ∗ (v) f H −C f H −C denotes the moduli space of Gieseker stable sheaves on S with respect to the polarization f H − C for sufﬁciently small > 0, by [22, Proposition 3.37]. In the projective setting, we can also prove the results in the previous subsections by using the properties listed above. We omit the proof, since the arguments are very similar. 123 N. Koseki Theorem 4.10 Let the notations be as above. Take a sufﬁciently small positive real number 0 < 1. Then an MMP for the moduli space M ∗ (v) of Gieseker stable sheaves f H −C on S is reduced to an MMP for the moduli M (w) on S. Furthermore, there exists a fully faithful embedding b b D (M (w)) → D (M (v)) H f H −C between their derived categories. 5 Examples In this section, we give some explicit examples. 5.1 Simplest example As the ﬁrst example, we consider the case when the Chern character is (r , 0, −1) with r ≥ 1. In this case, the corresponding quiver representation is B ,B 1 2 C C (5.1) i j C . We begin with the following easy observation: m m+1 Lemma 5.1 The moduli spaces M (r , 0, −1) and M (r , 0, −1) are isomorphic for m ≥ Proof Let m ≥ 0and E ∈ M (r , 0, −1) be an m-stable sheaf. Assume that E is not (m +1)- stable. Then we must have Hom(O (−m − 1), E ) = 0, and obtain the exact sequence ev 0 → Hom(O (−m − 1), E ) ⊗ O (−m − 1) − → E → E → 0 C C as in (3.2), for some m-stable and (m + 1)-stable sheaf E . On the other hand, by [21, Proposition 5.3], the sheaf O (−m − 1) corresponds to the quiver representation B ,B 1 2 m m+1 C C (5.2) with B = (1 , 0), B = (0, 1 ),where 1 denotes the (m × m) identity matrix. Hence the 1 m 2 m m representation (5.2) cannot have an injection into the representation (5.1)for m > 0. This m m+1 shows the inclusion M (r , 0, −1) ⊂ M (r , 0, −1) for m > 0. A similar argument shows m+1 m that the opposite inclusion M (r , 0, −1) ⊂ M (r , 0, −1). Furthermore, we can describe these moduli spaces explicitly: 123 Birational geometry of moduli spaces of perverse coherent… Lemma 5.2 We have the diagram 0 1 M (r , 0, −1) M (r , 0, −1) 0,1 M (r , 0, −1) and isomorphisms 0 ⊕2 ∼ ∼ M (r , 0, −1) M (r , 0, −1) Tot O ⊕ , 2 = = (r −1) P P 1 0 ∼ ∼ M (r , 0, −n) M (r , 0, −1) Bl M (r , 0, −1), = = (r −1) ˆ 2 (r −1) 0 where P is embedded into M (r , 0, −1) as the zero section. 2 2 Note that when r = 1, we recover the blow-up morphism C → C as the moduli spaces (cf. [21, Theorem 2.16]). Before starting the proof, let us recall the ADHM description of the framed sheaves on P (see [21, Section 1] and [20, Capter 2] for the details). Let V , W be vector spaces. An ADHM data is the data X := (B , B , i , j ),where B ∈ End(V ), i ∈ Hom(W , V ),and 1 2 α j ∈ Hom(V , W ) satisfying the relation [B , B ]+ ij = 0. (5.3) 1 2 An ADHM data X = (B , B , i , j ) is called stable if there is no proper subspace T ⊂ V 1 2 such that B (T ) ⊂ T for α = 1, 2, and Image(i ) ⊂ T . We have the moduli space of stable ADHM data as the quotient of the stable locus inside the afﬁne space ×2 End(V ) × Hom(W , V ) × Hom(V , W ) modulo the natural GL(V )-action. Then the moduli space M 2 (r , 0, ch ) of torsion free framed sheaves on P is isomorphic to the moduli space of stable ADHM data with dim V =− ch , dim W = r (cf. [20, Chapter 2]) Proof of Lemma 5.2 Let us put dim V = 1, dim W = r,and let X = (B , B , i , j ) be a stable 1 2 ADHM data. Since dim V = 1, the relation (5.3) becomes ij = 0, and the stability condition becomes i = 0. Hence the stable locus is given as ×2 ∨ −1 End(V ) × (W \{0}) × W ) ∩ μ (0), where ×2 ∨ μ : End(V ) × W × W → C,(B , B , i , j ) → ij 1 2 is the moment map. As GL(V ) = C acts trivially on End(V ), and on W by weight −1, we have ⊕2 M 2 (r , 0, −1) = Tot (r −1) O ⊕ . P P Next we determine the variety M (r , 0, −1). Recall that we have an isomorphism (cf. [21, Proposition 7.4]) φ : M (r , 0, −1) − → M (r , 0, −1), (B , B , d, i , j ) → (dB , dB , di , j ). (5.4) 1 2 1 2 The locus blown-up by ξ is given by 0 0 M (r , 0, −1) = E ∈ M (r , 0, −1) : hom(O (−1), E ) = 1 . (5.5) 1 C 123 N. Koseki As the sheaf O (−1) corresponds to the representation (5.2) with m = 0, we see that the locus (5.5) coincides with the subvariety (r −1) P L := (B = B = j = 0) ⊂ M 2 (r , 0, −1) = 1 2 under the isomorphism (5.4), which is nothing but the zero section. 5.2 Hilbert scheme of points In this subsection, we consider the moduli spaces with Chern character (1, 0, −n).Inthis n 2 n 2 case, the diagram (1.1) connects the Hilbert schemes of points Hilb (C ) and Hilb (C ).We n 2 ﬁrst analyze the stability of ideal sheaves I ∈ Hilb (C ) (it is an ideal sheaf of a length n subscheme Z ⊂ P with Z ∩ l =∅). n 2 Lemma 5.3 Let us take a point I ∈ Hilb (C ) and let k be a length of Z ∩ C. Then I is Z Z k-stable but not (k − 1)-stable. Furthermore, its destabilizing sequence for (k − 1)-stability is given as 0 → I (−C ) → I → O (−k) → 0 W Z C for some length (n − k) zero dimensional subscheme W ⊂ P with W ∩ C =∅. Proof The ﬁrst statement follows from the proof of [17, Lemma 6.1]. For the second state- ment, let O be the kernel of the surjection O → O . Then we have the following W Z Z ∩C diagram. 0 0 0 0 I (−C ) O(−C ) O 0 W W 0 I I O 0 Z Z ∩C W O (−k) O (−k) C C Furthermore, the sheaf I (−C ) is 0-stable since W ∩ C =∅. Hence the second assertion follows. 5.2.1. When n = 2, we have the following diagram: 1 2 2 M (1, 0, −2) Hilb (C ) + − + ξ ξ ξ 0 1 1 2 2 0,1 Hilb (C ) M (1, 0, −2). The properties of the diagram are summarized as follows (cf.

Next we consider the case when n = 3. First let us analyze geometry of − + ξ ξ 2 2 2 2,3 3 2 M (1, 0, −3) − → M (1, 0, −3) ← − Hilb (C ). (5.6) 3 3 By Lemma 5.3,wehaveExc(ξ ) = Hilb (C ) P , 1 2 Exc(ξ ) P(Ext (O(−C ), O (−3))) = P , and the diagram (5.6) is a standard ﬂip. Next we analyze the geometry of the morphisms ξ . We have just seen that 2 3 2 3 1 M (1, 0, −3) = Hilb (C ) \ Hilb (C ) ∪ P Ext (O(−C ), O (−3)). Take a non-trivial extension 0 → O (−3) → E → O(−C ) → 0, (5.7) C 2 which deﬁnes a 2-stable sheaf [E ]∈ M (1, 0, −3). We claim that we have the equality hom(E , O (−2)) = 1. Indeed, by applying the functor Hom(−, O (−2)) to the exact 2 C C sequence (5.7), we have the exact sequence 0 → Hom(E , O (−2)) → Hom(O (−3), O (−2)) → Ext (O(−C ), O (−2)), 2 C C C C which proves the claim. By a standard diagram chasing, we can see that E ﬁts into the exact sequence 0 → I (−C ) → E → O (−2) → 0 p 2 C for some point p ∈ C. Combining with Lemma 5.3, we conclude that + 1 Exc(ξ ) = P(Ext (O (−2), I (−C ))), C p p∈C − 1 Exc(ξ ) = P(Ext (I (−C ), O (−2))), p C ˆ 2 p∈C 2 1 2 which are P -bundle, P -bundle over C , respectively. The diagram − + ξ ξ 1 1 1 1,2 2 M (1, 0, −3) − → M (1, 0, −3) ← − M (1, 0, −3) is a family of standard ﬂips parametrized by C . 123 N. Koseki + 1 3 2 Finally, let us consider the morphism ξ : M (1, 0, −3) → Hilb (C ).There aretwo types of objects in M (1, 0, −3): (1) an ideal sheaf I ,where Z ⊂ C is a length 3 zero dimensional subscheme with Z ∩C = {pt}. 1 2 (2) an object E ∈ P(Ext (I (−C ), O (−2))),where p ∈ C . 1 p C Let us consider a sheaf E of type (2). By a computation similar as above, we can see that hom(E , O (−1)) ≤ 2. Again, by a simple diagram chasing, we have the following 1 C possibilities: • When hom(E , O (−1)) = 1, E ﬁts into a exact sequence 1 C 1 0 → I (−C ) → E → O (−1) → 0 p,q 1 C for some q ∈ C with q = p. • When hom(E , O (−1)) = 2, E ﬁts into an exact sequence 1 C 1 ⊕2 0 → O(−2C ) → E → O (−1) → 0. 1 C 1 3 2 As a summary, we list up the properties of the morphism ξ : M (1, 0, −3) → Hilb (C ): + + 1 2 1,2 • We have ξ (Exc(ξ )) = M (1, 0, −2) ∩ M (1, 0, −2) = M (1, 0, −2), which has a 0 0 1,2 single singular point o ∈ M (1, 0, −2). 1,2 • For a point p ∈ M (1, 0, −2), the ﬁber of ξ is given as F := P (p = o) + −1 (ξ ) (p) = F := P (p = o). • The normal bundles of ﬁbers of ξ are given as ⊕2 N (−1) , 1 = 2 F /M (1,0,−3) P ⊕4 N 1 = O 1 (−1) ⊕ O (p = o). F /M (1,0,−3) P 1 1 3 2 • The moduli space M (1, 0, −3) is isomorphic to Bl 1,2 Hilb (C ). M (1,0,−2) Using the semi-orthogonal decompositions for standard ﬂips and blow-ups of codimension two Cohen–Macaulay subschemes (cf. [14, 3.1.2]), we have b 3 2 D (Hilb (C )) b b b b 2 b 2 b 2 2 b 3 2 = D (pt), D (pt), D (pt), D (C ), D (C ), D (Hilb (C )), D (Hilb (C )) . 5.2.3. We give the ﬁrst example where the Grassmannian variety (which is not the projec- tive space) appears as a ﬁber: let us consider a non-trivial extension ⊕2 0 → O(−2C ) → E → O (−2) → 0. The sheaf E is 2-stable but not 1-stable, and has a Chern character (1, 0, −5). Noting that 1 2 ext (O (−2), O(−2C )) = 4, we have Gr(2, 4) ⊂ M (1, 0, −5) and it is contracted by the 2 1,2 morphism ξ : M (1, 0, −5) → M (1, 0, −5).
