On the strong maximal rank conjecture in genus 22 and 23

  title={On the strong maximal rank conjecture in genus 22 and 23},
  author={David Jensen and Sam Payne},
  journal={arXiv: Algebraic Geometry},
We develop new methods to study tropicalizations of linear series and show linear independence of sections. Using these methods, we prove two new cases of the strong maximal rank conjecture for linear series of degree 25 and 26 on curves of genus 22 and 23, respectively.

The Strong Maximal Rank conjecture and higher rank Brill–Noether theory
By viewing a rank two vector bundle as an extension of line bundles we may re-interpret cohomological conditions on the vector bundles (e.g., number of sections) as rank conditions on multiplicationExpand
The Kodaira dimensions of $\overline{\mathcal{M}}_{22}$ and $\overline{\mathcal{M}}_{23}$
We prove that the moduli spaces of curves of genus 22 and 23 are of general type. To do this, we calculate certain virtual divisor classes of small slope associated to linear series of rank 6 withExpand
Divisors on the Moduli Space of Curves From Divisorial Conditions On Hypersurfaces
In this note, we extend work of Farkas and Rimanyi on applying quadric rank loci to finding divisors of small slope on the moduli space of curves by instead considering all divisorial conditions onExpand
On the unirationality of moduli spaces of pointed curves
We show that $\mathcal{M}_{g,n}$, the moduli space of smooth curves of genus $g$ together with $n$ marked points, is unirational for $g=12$ and $n\leq 4$ and for $g=13$ and $n \leq 3$, byExpand


The maximal rank conjecture
Let C be a general curve of genus g, embedded in P^r via a general linear series of degree d. In this paper, we prove the Maximal Rank Conjecture, which determines the Hilbert function of C.
Combinatorial and inductive methods for the tropical maximal rank conjecture
This conjecture for the canonical divisor is proved using explicit calculations in a range of base cases, and in a wide range of cases for m =3, extending previous results for m=2. Expand
