Laura LynchClass Notes for Math 918: Homological Conjectures, Instructor Tom Marley
http://digitalcommons.unl.edu/mathclass/6
http://digitalcommons.unl.edu/mathclass/6Fri, 06 Aug 2010 08:39:27 PDT
This course was an overview of what are known as the “Homological Conjectures,” in particular, the Zero Divisor Conjecture, the Rigidity Conjecture, the Intersection Conjectures, Bass’ Conjecture, the Superheight Conjecture, the Direct Summand Conjecture, the Monomial Conjecture, the Syzygy Conjecture, and the big and small Cohen Macaulay Conjectures. Many of these are shown to imply others.

This document contains notes for a course taught by Tom Marley during the 2009 spring semester at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The notes loosely follow the treatment given in Chapters 8 and 9 of Cohen-Macaulay Rings, by W. Bruns and J. Herzog, although many other sources, including articles and monographs by Peskine, Szpiro, Hochster, Huneke, Grith, Evans, Lyubeznik, and Roberts (to name a few), were used. Special thanks to Laura Lynch for putting these notes into LaTeX.
