In this paper we extend the definition of a separator of a point P in P to a fat point P of multiplicity m. The key idea in our definition is to compare the fat point schemes Z = m1P1 + · · · + miPi + · · · + msPs ⊆ P and Z = m1P1 + · · · + (mi − 1)Pi + · · · + msPs. We associate to Pi a tuple of positive integers of length ν = degZ − degZ. We call this(More)
If X is a finite set of points in a multiprojective space P1 × · · · × Pr with r ≥ 2, then X may or may not be arithmetically Cohen-Macaulay (ACM). For sets of points in P × P there are several classifications of the ACM sets of points. In this paper we investigate the natural generalizations of these classifications to an arbitrary multiprojective space.(More)
We initiate the study of extended bicolorings of Steiner triple systems (STS) which start with a k-bicoloring of an STS(v) and end up with a k-bicoloring of an STS(2v + 1) obtained by a doubling construction, using only the original colors used in coloring the subsystem STS(v). By producing many such extended bicolorings, we obtain several infinite classes(More)
In this note we develop some of the properties of separators of points in a multiprojective space. In particular, we prove multigraded analogs of results of Geramita, Maroscia, and Roberts relating the Hilbert function of X and X \ {P} via the degree of a separator, and Abrescia, Bazzotti, and Marino relating the degree of a separator to shifts in the(More)
The graded Betti numbers of the minimal free resolution (and also therefore the Hilbert function) of the ideal of a fat point subscheme Z of P are determined whenever Z is supported at any 6 or fewer distinct points. We also handle a broad range of cases in which the points can be infinitely near, related to the classification of normal cubic surfaces. All(More)
Let Z be a set of fat points in a multiprojective space Pn × · · · × Pn . We introduce definitions for the separator of a fat point and the degree of a fat point in this context, and we study some of their properties. Our definition has been picked so that when we specialize to the cases: (a) Z is a reduced set of points in Pn , (b) Z is a set of fat points(More)
A bicolorable STS(v) is a Steiner triple system whose vertices are colored in such way that every block receives precisely two colors. A k-bicoloring of a STS is a vertex coloring using each of k colors, and the feasible set Ω is a set of integers k for which k-bicolorings exist. In this paper, we study feasible sets of STS(v)s of all orders v < 50.
Let Z be a finite set of double points in P×P and suppose further that X , the support of Z, is arithmetically Cohen-Macaulay (ACM). We present an algorithm, which depends only upon a combinatorial description of X , for the bigraded Betti numbers of IZ , the defining ideal of Z. We then relate the total Betti numbers of IZ to the shifts in the graded(More)
