Smoothable Gorenstein Points Via Marked Schemes and Double-generic Initial Ideals

Abstract Over an infinite field K with we investigate smoothable Gorenstein K-points in a punctual Hilbert scheme and obtain the following results: (i) every K-point defined by local Gorenstein

Linear General Position (i.e. Arcs) for Zero-Dimensional Schemes Over a Finite Field

We extend some of the usual notions of projective geometry over a finite field (arcs and caps) to the case of zero-dimensional schemes defined over a finite field Fq. In particular we prove that for

Smoothable zero dimensional schemes and special projections of algebraic varieties

We study the degrees of generators of the ideal of a projected Veronese variety v2(P3)⊂P9 to P6 depending on the center of projection. This is related to the geometry of zero dimensional schemes of

Elementary components of Hilbert schemes of points

The Bialynicki-Birula decomposition is generalized to singular schemes and an infinite family of small, elementary and generically smooth components of the Hilbert scheme of points of the affine four-space is found.

A G ] 1 F eb 2 01 9 Elementary components of Hilbert schemes of points

Consider the Hilbert scheme of points on a higher-dimensional affine space. Its component is elementary if it parameterizes irreducible subschemes. We characterize reduced elementary components in

Let X ⊂ P be a projective embedded variety defined over a field K. Results relating maximum and generic X-rank of points of P(K) and P(L) are given, where L is a field containing K. Some of these

Apolarity, border rank, and multigraded Hilbert scheme

We introduce an elementary method to study the border rank of polynomials and tensors, analogous to the apolarity lemma. This can be used to describe the border rank of all cases uniformly, including

The Hilbert Scheme of 11 Points in \(\mathbb{A}^{3}\) Is Irreducible

We prove that the Hilbert scheme of 11 points on a smooth threefold is irreducible. In the course of the proof, we present several known and new techniques for producing curves on the Hilbert scheme.

Concise tensors of minimal border rank

. We determine defining equations for the set of concise tensors of minimal border rank in C m ⊗ C m ⊗ C m when m = 5 and the set of concise minimal border rank 1 ∗ -generic tensors when m = 5 , 6 .



Deformations of zero-dimensional schemes and applications

In this thesis we consider the geometry of the Hilbert scheme of points in P^n, concentrating on the locus of points corresponding to the Gorenstein subschemes of P^n. New results are given, most

Determinantal equations for secant varieties and the Eisenbud–Koh–Stillman conjecture

This work puts Eisenbud's question in a more general context about the behaviour of border rank under specialisation to a linear subspace, and provides an overview of conjectures coming from signal processing and complexity theory in this context.

Equations for secant varieties of Veronese and other varieties

New classes of modules of equations for secant varieties of Veronese varieties are defined using representation theory and geometry. Some old modules of equations (catalecticant minors) are revisited


Abstract We consider higher secant varieties to Veronese varieties. Most points on the rth secant variety are represented by a finite scheme of length r contained in the Veronese variety – in fact,

Constructions of $k$-regular maps using finite local schemes

A continuous map from R^m to R^N or from C^m to C^N is called k-regular if the images of any $k$ points are linearly independent. Given integers m and k a problem going back to Chebyshev and Borsuk

Irreducibility of the Gorenstein loci of Hilbert schemes via ray families

We analyze the Gorenstein locus of the Hilbert scheme of $d$ points on $\p n$ i.e., the open subscheme parameterizing zero--dimensional Gorenstein subschemes of $\p n$ of degree $d$ d. We give new

Multigraded Hilbert schemes

We introduce the multigraded Hilbert scheme, which parametrizes all homogeneous ideals with fixed Hilbert function in a polynomial ring that is graded by any abelian group. Our construction is widely
