Research Abstract 
Let X be a normal complete algebraic variety and L an invertible sheaf on it . I considered the following effective nonvanishing conjecture : "Assume that there exists an Rdivisor B on X such that the pair (X, B) is KIT, L is nef. and L  (K_X +B) is nef and big. Then there exists a nonzero holomorphic global sections of L". I proved it in the case where the numerical Kodaira dimension of L is at most 2, or X is a minimal 3fold or a Fano 4fold. In the course of the proof, I obtained a logarithmic version of the semipositivity theorem for algebraic fiber spaces. Combining with the adjunction theorem which I proved earlier, one can apply the result for the existence problem of ladders on Fano varieties. I considered the following relative version of the Fujita freeness conjecture which may lead to the solution of Fujita's original conjecture in arbitrary dimension : "Let f be a surjective morphism from a smooth projective variety Y to an other smooth projective variety X such that f

is smooth over the complement of a normal crossing divisor on X, and L an ample line bundle on X. Let F be the direct image sheaf of the canonical sheaf of Y by f. Then the tensor product of F and the mth power of L is generated by global sections if m is at least n+1." The result obtained states that the relative conjecture is reduced to the conjecture on the local existence of certain log canonical divisor, and thus the relative conjecture is confirmed when n is at most 4. In order to prove the result, I extended the Qdivisorial version of the vanishing theorem for the direct image sheaf F in terms of the parabolic structure on F, where the parabolic structure is defined using the filtration of the Hodge bundle determined by the monodromy of the variation of Hodge structures. I considered a new approach toward the existence problem of the flip from the view point of the theory of bounded derived categories of coherent sheaves on algebraic varieties. As a preparation, I proved that the existence problem of the flip is reduced to the existence problem of the flop. Then I showed by example that for varieties with quotient singularities, the usual bounded derived categories of coherent sheaves are not necessarily invariant under the flops. Then I showed that if we consider orbifold sheaves instead of usual sheaves, everything works well in some special cases. Less
