## Twistor lines in the period domain of complex tori

• Author(s): Buskin, Nikolay
As in the case of irreducible holomorphic symplectic manifolds, the period domain $Compl$ of compact complex tori of even dimension $2n$ contains twistor lines. These are special $2$-spheres parametrizing complex tori whose complex structures arise from a given quaternionic structure. In analogy with the case of irreducible holomorphic symplectic manifolds, we show that the periods of any two complex tori can be joined by a {\em generic} chain of twistor lines. We also prove a criterion of twistor path connectivity of loci in $Compl$ where a fixed second cohomology class stays of Hodge type (1,1). Furthermore, we show that twistor lines are holomorphic submanifolds of $Compl$, of degree $2n$ in the Pl\"ucker embedding of $Compl$.
