A contraction ' : X ! Z is a proper map of normal irreducible
varieties with connected fibers.
We study the case X smooth; F denotes a fiber.
The contraction ' is called Fano­Mori (or also extremal) if the
anti­canonical divisor \GammaK X is '­ample.
The map can be birational or of fiber type, i.e. dimX ? dimZ.
The exceptional locus E of a birational contraction ' is the smallset
subset of X such that ' is an isomorphism on X n E.
If codimE – 2 then ' is called small.
