Moment-angle Complexes, Monomial Ideals and Massey Products

  author={Graham C. Denham and Alexander I. Suciu},

Associated to every finite simplicial complex K there is a "moment-angle" finite CW-complex, Z_K; if K is a triangulation of a sphere, Z_K is a smooth, compact manifold. Building on work of Buchstaber, Panov, and Baskakov, we study the cohomology ring, the homotopy groups, and the triple Massey products of a moment-angle complex, relating these topological invariants to the algebraic combinatorics of the underlying simplicial complex. Applications to the study of non-formal manifolds and…

Massey products, toric topology and combinatorics of polytopes

In this paper we introduce a direct family of simple polytopes such that for any there are non-trivial strictly defined Massey products of order in the cohomology rings of their moment-angle

Homotopy theory in toric topology

In toric topology one associates with each simplicial complex on vertices two key spaces, the Davis–Januszkiewicz space and the moment-angle complex , which are related by a homotopy fibration . A


Last years the construction of generalized moment-angle complexes attracted a lot of interest. The connections with many other famous constructions were found, such as subspace arrangements, toric

Operations on polyhedral products and a new topological construction of infinite families of toric manifolds

A combinatorial construction is used to analyze the properties of polyhedral products and generalized moment-angle complexes with respect to certain operations on CW pairs including exponentiation.

LS-category of moment-angle manifolds, Massey products, and a generalisation of the Golod property

This paper is obtained as as synergy of homotopy theory, commutative algebra and combinatorics. We give various bounds for the Lusternik-Schnirelmann category of moment-angle complexes and show how

We prove that certain conditions on multigraded Betti numbers of a simplicial complex K imply the existence of a higher Massey product in the cohomology of a moment-angle complex \({{\cal Z}_K}\),

Geometric structures on moment-angle manifolds

A moment-angle complex is a cell complex with a torus action constructed from a finite simplicial complex . When this construction is applied to a triangulated sphere or, in particular, to the

Massey Products in the Cohomology of the Moment-Angle Manifolds Corresponding to Pogorelov Polytopes

Nontrivial Massey products in the cohomology of the moment-angle manifolds corresponding to polytopes in the Pogorelov class are constructed. This class includes the dodecahedron and all fullerenes,



Algebraic invariants for right-angled Artin groups

A finite simplicial graph Γ determines a right-angled Artin group GΓ, with generators corresponding to the vertices of Γ, and with a relation υw=wυ for each pair of adjacent vertices. We compute the

The cohomology rings of complements of subspace arrangements

Abstract. The ring structure of the integral cohomology of complements of real linear subspace arrangements is considered. While the additive structure of the cohomology is given in terms of the

Small rational model of subspace complement

This paper concerns the rational cohomology ring of the complement M of a complex subspace arrangement. We start with the De Concini-Procesi differential graded algebra that is a rational model for

For an arbitrary simplicial complex K, Davis and Januszkiewicz have defined a family of homotopy equivalent CW-complexes whose inte- gral cohomology rings are isomorphic to the Stanley-Reisner

Real quadrics in Cn, complex manifolds and convex polytopes

In this paper, we investigate the topology of a class of non-Kähler compact complex manifolds generalizing that of Hopf and Calabi-Eckmann manifolds. These manifolds are diffeomorphic to special

Categorical aspects of toric topology

We argue for the addition of category theory to the toolkit of toric topology, by surveying recent examples and applications. Our case is made in terms of toric spaces X_K, such as moment-angle

Homotopy Lie algebras, lower central series and the Koszul property

Let X and Y be finite-type CW–complexes (X connected, Y simply connected), such that the rational cohomology ring of Y is a k–rescaling of the rational cohomology ring of X. Assume H ∗ (X, Q) is a
