Abstract

We study the geometry of a Picard modular fourfold which parametrizes abelian fourfolds of Weil type for the field of cube roots of unity. We find a projective model of this fourfold as a singular, degree ten, hypersurface X in projective 5-space. The Weyl group W(E6) acts on X and we provide an explicit description of this action. Moreover, we describe various special subvarieties as well as the boundary of X.
