Description of the project:
Given R a positively graded algebra and M a finitely generated graded R-module, we are interested
in the study of the minimal graded free resolution of M over R. Its invariants (the Betti numbers) are very
important in understanding the equations describing M. In many cases of interest, e.g. when R is an algebra of polynomials,
and M=I is a monomial or a binomial ideal, there exists some extra structure available on this module, and this is reflected in
the homological properties of the modules. Various tools from combinatorics, topology or homological algebra may be used.
This is an area of much current research.
When M or R are not graded from the start, a good way to reduce to the graded case is to use the filtration induced by the
powers of a maximal ideal m in R and consider the associated graded ring gr_m(R), and similarly for grM.
Of course, certain properties may be lost, but we know for sure that the Betti numbers may only increase.
An important class of graded rings R consists of those with R_0 is a field or a semisimple ring and R_0 has a linear resolution
as an R-module. If this occurs, we say that R is Koszul.
When an algebra is not graded from the very beginning, we may use the idea above to pass to the associated graded ring and study the Koszul property for the latter. This approach has already been exploited by V. Reiner and the PI. There are perspectives to extend its applications.
