Homotopy groups of complements to ample divisors
Homotopy groups of the complements to divisors with ample components on non-singular projective varieties are considered as the modules over the fundamental group. We prove a vanishing theorem and consider the calculation of supports of these modules by relating them to the cohomology of local systems. We review previous work on the local study of isolated non-normal crossings. As an application, we obtain information about the support loci of homotopy groups of arrangements of hyperplanes.
