# 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…

Vertex decomposability and regularity of very well-covered graphs

A graph $G$ is well-covered if it has no isolated vertices and all the maximal independent sets have the same cardinality. If furthermore two times this cardinality is equal to $|V(G)|$, the graph…

This work studies the topology of the lcm-lattice of edge ideals and derives upper bounds on the Castelnuovo-Mumford regularity of the ideals and shows that the second power of the edge ideal has a linear resolution.

The regularity of the edge ideal of a finite simple graph G is at least the induced matching number of G and is at most the minimum matching number of G. If G possesses a dominating induced matching,…
