Click and Collect from your local Waterstones or get FREE UK delivery on orders over £ The discovery of 27 lines on a general cubic surface can be considered as the first non-trivial result on algebraic surfaces of order higher than 2.

In fact, it can be considered as the beginning of modern algebraic geometry. This animation by Greg Egan shows 27 lines on a surface defined by cubic equations: the Clebsch surface.

It illustrates a remarkable fact: any smooth cubic surface contains 27 lines. In its most symmetrical presentation, the Clebsch surface is defined by the equations $$ \begin{array}{c} x_0+x_1+x_2+x_3+x_4 = 0 \\.

cubic surface contains a ﬁnite number of lines. Salmon proves that the number of lines must be equal to Salmon’s proof is presented in Cayley’s paper [Cay].

In the same paper Cayley shows that a general cubic surface admits 45 tritangent planes, i.e. planes planes which intersect the surface along the union of three lines.

A brief history In Archibald Henderson wrote in his book [Hen] “While it is doubteless true that the classification of cubic surfaces is complete, the number of papers dealing with these surfaces which continue to appear from year to year furnish abundant proof of the fact that they still possess much the same fascination as they did in the days of their discovery of the twenty-seven lines upon the cubic surface.”.

In this post, I’d like to work out an explicit example, of the 27 lines on a smooth cubic surface in ; as we’ll see, the Fano scheme is 27 reduced points, and the count can be made with a little calculation on the Grassmannian.Abstract.
