3-dimensional sundials

Enrico Carlini, Maria Catalisano, Anthony Geramita (2011)

Open Mathematics

R. Hartshorne and A. Hirschowitz proved that a generic collection of lines on ℙn, n≥3, has bipolynomial Hilbert function. We extend this result to a specialization of the collection of generic lines, by considering a union of lines and 3-dimensional sundials (i.e., a union of schemes obtained by degenerating pairs of skew lines).

A geometric application of Nori’s connectivity theorem

Claire Voisin (2004)

Annali della Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa - Classe di Scienze

We study (rational) sweeping out of general hypersurfaces by varieties having small moduli spaces. As a consequence, we show that general K -trivial hypersurfaces are not rationally swept out by abelian varieties of dimension at least two. As a corollary, we show that Clemens’ conjecture on the finiteness of rational curves of given degree in a general quintic threefold, and Lang’s conjecture saying that such varieties should be rationally swept-out by abelian varieties, contradict.

A minimal Set of Generators for the Ring of multisymmetric Functions

David Rydh (2007)

Annales de l’institut Fourier

The purpose of this article is to give, for any (commutative) ring A , an explicit minimal set of generators for the ring of multisymmetric functions T S A d ( A [ x 1 , , x r ] ) = A [ x 1 , , x r ] A d 𝔖 d as an A -algebra. In characteristic zero, i.e. when A is a -algebra, a minimal set of generators has been known since the 19th century. A rather small generating set in the general case has also recently been given by Vaccarino but it is not minimal in general. We also give a sharp degree bound on the generators, improving the degree bound previously...

A Smooth Four-Dimensional G-Hilbert Scheme

Sebestean, Magda (2004)

Serdica Mathematical Journal

2000 Mathematics Subject Classification: 14C05, 14L30, 14E15, 14J35.When the cyclic group G of order 15 acts with some specific weights on affine four-dimensional space, the G-Hilbert scheme is a crepant resolution of the quotient A^4 / G. We give an explicit description of this resolution using G-graphs.

A support theorem for Hilbert schemes of planar curves

Luca Migliorini, Vivek Shende (2013)

Journal of the European Mathematical Society

Consider a family of integral complex locally planar curves whose relative Hilbert scheme of points is smooth. The decomposition theorem of Beilinson, Bernstein, and Deligne asserts that the pushforward of the constant sheaf on the relative Hilbert scheme splits as a direct sum of shifted semisimple perverse sheaves. We will show that no summand is supported in positive codimension. It follows that the perverse filtration on the cohomology of the compactified Jacobian of an integral plane curve...
