Abstract

Iku Nakamura [Hilbert schemes of Abelian group orbits, J. Alg. Geom. 10 (2001), 757--779] introduced the G-Hilbert scheme for a finite subgroup G in SL(3,C), and conjectured that it is a crepant resolution of the quotient C^3/G. He proved this for a diagonal Abelian group A by introducing an explicit algorithm that calculates A-Hilb C^3. This note calculates A-Hilb C^3 much more simply, in terms of fun with continued fractions plus regular tesselations by equilateral triangles.
