Globally F-regular varieties are a class of projective varieties over a field of prime characteristic, closely related to the more well-known class of Frobenius split varieties, but more robust. Examples include Schubert and related varieties. In trying to understand their geometry, we discovered that they are very closely related to log Fano varieties. I will explain both these classes of varieties and the emerging connection between them.
