Rational, Log Canonical, Du Bois Singularities II: Kodaira Vanishing and Small Deformations
Kollár's conjecture, that log canonical singularities are Du Bois, is proved in the case of Cohen–Macaulay 3-folds. This in turn is used to derive Kodaira vanishing for this class of varieties. Finally it is proved that small deformations of Du Bois singularities are again Du Bois.
