Abstract This paper takes a new look at ideals generated by 2×2 minors of 2×3 matrices whose entries are powers of three elements not necessarily forming a regular sequence. A special case of this is the ideals determining monomial curves in three-dimensional space, which were studied by Herzog. In the broader context studied here, these ideals are identified as Northcott ideals in the sense of Vasconcelos, and so their liaison properties are displayed. It is shown that they are set… 

Degree and Algebraic Properties of Lattice and Matrix Ideals

We study the degree of nonhomogeneous lattice ideals over arbitrary fields, and give formulas to compute the degree in terms of the torsion of certain factor groups of $\mathbb{Z}^s$ and in terms of


Abstract In this paper, we study a family of binomial ideals defining monomial curves in the n-dimensional affine space determined by n hypersurfaces of the form $x_i^{c_i} - x_1^{u_{i1}} \cdots

Sally’s question and a conjecture of shimoda

Abstract In 2007, Shimoda, in connection with a long-standing question of Sally, asked whether a Noetherian local ring, such that all its prime ideals different from the maximal ideal are complete

Saturations of powers of certain determinantal ideals

Let $R$ be a Noetherian local ring and $m$ a positive integer. Let $I$ be the ideal of $R$ generated by the maximal minors of an $m \times (m + 1)$ matrix $M$ with entries in $R$. Assuming that the


We describe prime ideals of height 2 minimally generated by 3 elements in a Gorenstein, Nagata local ring of Krull dimension 3 and multiplicity at most 3. This subject is related to a conjecture of

Noncomplete intersection prime ideals in dimension $3$

We describe prime ideals of height 2 minimally generated by 3 elements in a Gorenstein, Nagata local ring of Krull dimension 3 and multiplicity at most 3. This subject is related to a conjecture of

Degrees of Rees polynomial and multiplicity function

Let $J\subset I$ be ideals in a formally equidimensional local ring with $\lambda(I/J)<\infty$ and $J$ is a reduction of $I.$ For all large $n,$ the function $\lambda(I^n/J^n)$ is a polynomial



Binomial Ideals

: We investigate the structure of ideals generated by binomials (poly-nomials with at most two terms) and the schemes and varieties associated to them. The class of binomial ideals contains many

For each matrix, whose elements belong to a commutative ring with an identity element, there is defined a free complex. This complex is a generalization of the standard Koszul complex, which

On the integral closure of ideals

Abstract:Among the several types of closures of an ideal I that have been defined and studied in the past decades, the integral closure has a central place being one of the earliest and most

Generators and relations of abelian semigroups and semigroup rings

The object of this paper is the study of the relations of finitely generated abelian semigroups. We give a new proof of the fact that each such semigroup S is finitely presented. Moreover, we show

Monomial space curves in ³ as set-theoretic complete intersections

It is shown constructively that all monomial space curves in affine 3-space are set-theoretic complete intersections. It was shown by J. Herzog (private communication) that all space curves in affine

The theory of d-sequences and powers of ideals


0. Introduction. Let R be a local ring, and I an ideal of R. Associated to I are several graded algebras: the symmetric algebra of the module I, Sym(I), the Rees algebra of I, defined to be the

Vanishing of the André-Quillen homology module H 2(A, B, G(I))

Abstract Let I be an ideal of a commutative Noetherian ring A, A ⊃ Q, B = A/I and G(I) the associated graded ring to I. It is known that H 2(A, B, B) = 0 is equivalent to I being syzygetic. We prove
