The augmented base locus of real divisors over arbitrary fields

Birkar, Caucher (2016-07-08)


We show that the augmented base locus coincides with the exceptional locus (i.e., null locus) for any nef $\Bbb R$-Cartier divisor on any scheme projective over a field (of any characteristic). Next we prove a semi-ampleness criterion in terms of the exceptional locus generalizing a result of Keel. We also discuss some problems related to augmented base loci of log divisors.
