Let R be a commutative Noetherian ring. We prove that if R is either an equidimensional finitely generated algebra over a perfect field, or an equidimensional equicharacteristic complete local ring with a perfect residue field, then the annihilator of the singularity category of R coincides with the Jacobian ideal of R up to radical. We establish a relationship between the annihilator of the singularity category of R and the cohomological annihilator of R under some mild assumptions. Finally, we give an upper bound for the dimension of the singularity category of an equicharacteristic excellent local ring with isolated singularity. This extends a result of Dao and Takahashi to non-Cohen–Macaulay rings.
In this paper, we study the Koszul property of the homogeneous coordinate ring of a generic collection of lines in
$\mathbb {P}^n$
and the homogeneous coordinate ring of a collection of lines in general linear position in
$\mathbb {P}^n.$
We show that if
$\mathcal {M}$
is a collection of m lines in general linear position in
$\mathbb {P}^n$
with
$2m \leq n+1$
and R is the coordinate ring of
$\mathcal {M},$
then R is Koszul. Furthermore, if
$\mathcal {M}$
is a generic collection of m lines in
$\mathbb {P}^n$
and R is the coordinate ring of
$\mathcal {M}$
with m even and
$m +1\leq n$
or m is odd and
$m +2\leq n,$
then R is Koszul. Lastly, we show that if
$\mathcal {M}$
is a generic collection of m lines such that
then R is not Koszul. We give a complete characterization of the Koszul property of the coordinate ring of a generic collection of lines for
$n \leq 6$
or
$m \leq 6$
. We also determine the Castelnuovo–Mumford regularity of the coordinate ring for a generic collection of lines and the projective dimension of the coordinate ring of collection of lines in general linear position.
Hilbert–Kunz multiplicity and F-signature are numerical invariants of commutative rings in positive characteristic that measure severity of singularities: for a regular ring both invariants are equal to one and the converse holds under mild assumptions. A natural question is for what singular rings these invariants are closest to one. For Hilbert–Kunz multiplicity this question was first considered by the last two authors and attracted significant attention. In this paper, we study this question, i.e., an upper bound, for F-signature and revisit lower bounds on Hilbert–Kunz multiplicity.
The goal of the article is to better understand cosupport in triangulated categories since it is still quite mysterious. We study boundedness of local cohomology and local homology functors using Koszul objects, give some characterizations of cosupport, and get some results that, in special cases, recover and generalize the known results about the usual cosupport. Additionally, we include some computations of cosupport and provide a comparison of support and cosupport for cohomologically finite objects. Finally, we assign to any object of the category a subset of
$\mathrm {Spec}R$
, called the big cosupport, and study some of its properties.
For a simple bipartite graph G, we give an upper bound for the regularity of powers of the edge ideal
$I(G)$
in terms of its vertex domination number. Consequently, we explicitly compute the regularity of powers of the edge ideal of a bipartite Kneser graph. Further, we compute the induced matching number of a bipartite Kneser graph.
In this paper we compute the topological Hochschild homology of quotients of discrete valuation rings (DVRs). Along the way we give a short argument for Bökstedt periodicity and generalizations over various other bases. Our strategy also gives a very efficient way to redo the computations of $\operatorname {THH}$ (respectively, logarithmic $\operatorname {THH}$) of complete DVRs originally due to Lindenstrauss and Madsen (respectively, Hesselholt and Madsen).
A celebrated result by Orlov states that any fully faithful exact functor between the bounded derived categories of coherent sheaves on smooth projective varieties is of geometric origin, i.e. it is a Fourier–Mukai functor. In this paper we prove that any smooth projective variety of dimension $\ge 3$ equipped with a tilting bundle can serve as the source variety of a non-Fourier–Mukai functor between smooth projective schemes.
We extend the theory of Koszul modules to the bi-graded case, and prove a vanishing theorem that allows us to show that the canonical ribbon conjecture of Bayer and Eisenbud holds over a field of characteristic $0$ or at least equal to the Clifford index. Our results confirm a conjecture of Eisenbud and Schreyer regarding the characteristics where the generic statement of Green's conjecture holds. They also recover and extend to positive characteristics the results of Voisin asserting that Green's conjecture holds for generic curves of each gonality.
It is proved that if $\varphi \colon A\to B$ is a local homomorphism of commutative noetherian local rings, a nonzero finitely generated B-module N whose flat dimension over A is at most $\operatorname {edim} A - \operatorname {edim} B$ is free over B and $\varphi $ is a special type of complete intersection. This result is motivated by a ‘patching method’ developed by Taylor and Wiles and a conjecture of de Smit, proved by the first author, dealing with the special case when N is flat over A.
In this short article, we will be principally investigating two classes of modules over any given group ring – the class of Gorenstein projectives and the class of Benson's cofibrants. We begin by studying various properties of these two classes and studying some of these properties comparatively against each other. There is a conjecture made by Fotini Dembegioti and Olympia Talelli that these two classes should coincide over the integral group ring for any group. We make this conjecture over group rings over commutative rings of finite global dimension and prove it for some classes of groups while also proving other related results involving the two classes of modules mentioned.
Let $L$ be a very ample line bundle on a projective scheme $X$ defined over an algebraically closed field $\Bbbk$ with ${\rm char}\,\Bbbk \neq 2$. We say that $(X,L)$ satisfies property $\mathsf {QR}(k)$ if the homogeneous ideal of the linearly normal embedding $X \subset {\mathbb {P}} H^{0} (X,L)$ can be generated by quadrics of rank less than or equal to $k$. Many classical varieties, such as Segre–Veronese embeddings, rational normal scrolls and curves of high degree, satisfy property $\mathsf {QR}(4)$. In this paper, we first prove that if ${\rm char}\,\Bbbk \neq 3$ then $({\mathbb {P}}^{n} , \mathcal {O}_{{\mathbb {P}}^{n}} (d))$ satisfies property $\mathsf {QR}(3)$ for all $n \geqslant 1$ and $d \geqslant 2$. We also investigate the asymptotic behavior of property $\mathsf {QR}(3)$ for any projective scheme. Specifically, we prove that (i) if $X \subset {\mathbb {P}} H^{0} (X,L)$ is $m$-regular then $(X,L^{d} )$ satisfies property $\mathsf {QR}(3)$ for all $d \geqslant m$, and (ii) if $A$ is an ample line bundle on $X$ then $(X,A^{d} )$ satisfies property $\mathsf {QR}(3)$ for all sufficiently large even numbers $d$. These results provide affirmative evidence for the expectation that property $\mathsf {QR}(3)$ holds for all sufficiently ample line bundles on $X$, as in the cases of Green and Lazarsfeld's condition $\mathrm {N}_p$ and the Eisenbud–Koh–Stillman determininantal presentation in Eisenbud et al. [Determinantal equations for curves of high degree, Amer. J. Math. 110 (1988), 513–539]. Finally, when ${\rm char}\,\Bbbk = 3$ we prove that $({\mathbb {P}}^{n} , \mathcal {O}_{{\mathbb {P}}^{n}} (2))$ fails to satisfy property $\mathsf {QR}(3)$ for all $n \geqslant 3$.
We give counterexamples to the degeneration of the Hochschild-Kostant-Rosenberg spectral sequence in characteristic p, both in the untwisted and twisted settings. We also prove that the de Rham-HP and crystalline-TP spectral sequences need not degenerate.
A local ring R is regular if and only if every finitely generated R-module has finite projective dimension. Moreover, the residue field k is a test module: R is regular if and only if k has finite projective dimension. This characterization can be extended to the bounded derived category
$\mathsf {D}^{\mathsf f}(R)$
, which contains only small objects if and only if R is regular. Recent results of Pollitz, completing work initiated by Dwyer–Greenlees–Iyengar, yield an analogous characterization for complete intersections: R is a complete intersection if and only if every object in
$\mathsf {D}^{\mathsf f}(R)$
is proxy small. In this paper, we study a return to the world of R-modules, and search for finitely generated R-modules that are not proxy small whenever R is not a complete intersection. We give an algorithm to construct such modules in certain settings, including over equipresented rings and Stanley–Reisner rings.
By use of a natural map introduced recently by the first and third authors from the space of pure-type complex differential forms on a complex manifold to the corresponding one on the small differentiable deformation of this manifold, we will give a power series proof for Kodaira–Spencer’s local stability theorem of Kähler structures. We also obtain two new local stability theorems, one of balanced structures on an n-dimensional balanced manifold with the
$(n-1,n)$
th mild
$\partial \overline {\partial }$
-lemma by power series method and the other one on p-Kähler structures with the deformation invariance of
$(p,p)$
-Bott–Chern numbers.
Let I be a zero-dimensional ideal in the polynomial ring
$K[x_1,\ldots ,x_n]$
over a field K. We give a bound for the number of roots of I in
$K^n$
counted with combinatorial multiplicity. As a consequence, we give a proof of Alon’s combinatorial Nullstellensatz.
Unfortunately, there is a mistake in [PS, Lemma 3.10] which invalidates [PS, Theorem 3.12]. We show that the theorem still holds if the ring is assumed to be Gorenstein.
In previous work, based on the work of Zwara and Yoshino, we defined and studied degenerations of objects in triangulated categories analogous to the degeneration of modules. In triangulated categories ${\mathcal{T}}$, it is surprising that the zero object may degenerate. We show that the triangulated subcategory of ${\mathcal{T}}$ generated by the objects that are degenerations of zero coincides with the triangulated subcategory of ${\mathcal{T}}$ consisting of the objects with a vanishing image in the Grothendieck group $K_{0}({\mathcal{T}})$ of ${\mathcal{T}}$.
The purpose of this note is to establish isomorphisms up to bounded torsion between relative $K_{0}$-groups and Chow groups with modulus as defined by Binda and Saito.
We prove that each positive power of the maximal ideal of a commutative Noetherian local ring is Tor-rigid and strongly rigid. This gives new characterizations of regularity and, in particular, shows that such ideals satisfy the torsion condition of a long-standing conjecture of Huneke and Wiegand.
