# Induced Matchings and the v-Number of Graded Ideals

@article{Grisalde2021InducedMA, title={Induced Matchings and the v-Number of Graded Ideals}, author={Gonzalo Grisalde and Enrique Reyes and Rafael H. Villarreal}, journal={Mathematics}, year={2021} }

We give a formula for the v-number of a graded ideal that can be used to compute this number. Then, we show that for the edge ideal I(G) of a graph G, the induced matching number of G is an upper bound for the v-number of I(G) when G is very well-covered, or G has a simplicial partition, or G is well-covered connected and contains neither four, nor five cycles. In all these cases, the v-number of I(G) is a lower bound for the regularity of the edge ring of G. We classify when the induced…

Let G be a finite simple graph with edge ideal I(G). Let I(G)∨ denote the Alexander dual of I(G). We show that a description of all induced cycles of odd length in G is encoded in the associated…

If G is a connected, well-covered graph containing no 4- nor 5-cycles as subgraphs and G contains an extendable vertex, then G is the disjoint union of edges and triangles together with a restricted set of edges joining extendable vertices.
