1. Chauhan, Sonia. Groebner basis and simplicial complexes attached to the tangent bundle of a family of determinantal varieties.

Degree: MS, Department of Mathematics, 2013, California State University – Northridge

For m C 2; consider the m??m determinantal variety of m??(m+1) matrices mod t2: this is the variety Zm;m+1 m;2 obtained by considering generic m?? (m+ 1) matrices over the ring F[t]~(t2), and setting the coe cients of powers of t of all m??m minors to zero. The corresponding object mod t is of course the classical determinantal variety Zm;m+1 m of m?? (m+ 1) matrices of rank less than m. We refer to the mod t2 variety Zm;m+1 m;2 as the tangent bundle of the classical variety Zm;m+1 m. In this thesis, we begin by providing a conjectured Groebner basis for the ideal Im;m+1 m;2 which de nes Zm;m+1 m;2 , and as well, conjectured lead terms of the Groebner basis. These conjectures were made based on explicit computations for the cases 2 B m B 6 that were done using the computer algebra system Singular ([8]). Since our conjectured lead terms are squarefree for all m, we can construct Im, the Stanley- Reisner simplicial complex attached to the ideal generated by our conjectured lead terms. This complex has an existence of its own, independent of the conjectures, and is an interesting object in its own right. The bulk of our thesis consists of the analysis of this simplicial complex. For all values of m, we describe the facets of Im in terms of their intersections with certain antidiagonals of a matrix of variables. Also for all values of m, we derive a formula that counts the number of facets of this complex. This number turns out to be the square of the degree of the classical variety Zm;m+1 m , which yields evidence that our conjectures about the Groebner basis and their lead terms are correct. In addition, for 2 B m B 6, we show that Im is shellable. Using standard results, we conclude from the shellability of Im that for 2 B m B 6, the coordinate ring of Zm;m+1 m;2 is Cohen-Macaulay, a property of great interest in algebraic geometry. Further, for 2 B m B 6, we compute the Hilbert function of the Stanley-Reisner ring of Im. The corresponding Hilbert series of Zm;m+1 m;2 pleasingly turns out to be the square of the Hilbert series of the classical variety Zm;m+1 m , giving further credibility to our conjectures.

2. Stokes, Erik. THE h-VECTORS OF MATROIDS AND THE ARITHMETIC DEGREE OF SQUAREFREE STRONGLY STABLE IDEALS.

Degree: 2008, University of Kentucky

Making use of algebraic and combinatorial techniques, we study two topics: the arithmetic degree of squarefree strongly stable ideals and the h-vectors of matroid complexes. For a squarefree monomial ideal, I, the arithmetic degree of I is the number of facets of the simplicial complex which has I as its Stanley-Reisner ideal. We consider the case when I is squarefree strongly stable, in which case we give an exact formula for the arithmetic degree in terms of the minimal generators of I as well as a lower bound resembling that from the Multiplicity Conjecture. Using this, we can produce an upper bound on the number of minimal generators of any Cohen-Macaulay ideals with arbitrary codimension extending Dubreil’s theorem for codimension 2. A matroid complex is a pure complex such that every restriction is again pure. It is a long-standing open problem to classify all possible h-vectors of such complexes. In the case when the complex has dimension 1 we completely resolve this question and we give some partial results for higher dimensions. We also prove the 1-dimensional case of a conjecture of Stanley that all matroid h-vectors are pure O-sequences. Finally, we completely characterize the Stanley-Reisner ideals of matroid complexes.

3. Connon, Emma. Generalizing Fröberg's Theorem on Ideals with Linear Resolutions.

Degree: PhD, Department of Mathematics & Statistics - Math Division, 2013, Dalhousie University

In 1990, Fröberg presented a combinatorial classification of the quadratic square-free monomial ideals with linear resolutions. He showed that the edge ideal of a graph has a linear resolution if and only if the complement of the graph is chordal. Since then, a generalization of Fröberg's theorem to higher dimensions has been sought in order to classify all square-free monomial ideals with linear resolutions. Such a characterization would also give a description of all square-free monomial ideals which are Cohen-Macaulay. In this thesis we explore one method of extending Fröberg's result. We generalize the idea of a chordal graph to simplicial complexes and use simplicial homology as a bridge between this combinatorial notion and the algebraic concept of a linear resolution. We are able to give a generalization of one direction of Fröberg's theorem and, in investigating the converse direction, find a necessary and sufficient combinatorial condition for a square-free monomial ideal to have a linear resolution over fields of characteristic 2.
