Abstract

Let $p \in X$ be the germ of a cusp singularity and let $\iota$ be an antisymplectic involution, that is an involution free on $X\setminus \{p\}$ and such that there exists a nowhere vanishing holomorphic 2-form $\Omega$ on $X\setminus \{p\}$ for which $\iota^*(\Omega)=-\Omega$. We prove that a sufficient condiition for such a singularity equipped with an antisymplectic involution to be equivariantly smoothable is the existence of a Looijenga (or anticanonical) pair $(Y,D)$ that admits an involution free on $Y\setminus D$ and that reverses the orientation of $D$.
