Part of the Springer Monographs in Mathematics book series (SMM)


We describe different approaches to prove \(H^1\)-vanishing for ideal sheaves of zero-dimensional schemes. When looking for appropriate \(H^1\)-vanishing theorems for the problems discussed in Chap.  4, one has to be aware that the types of zero-dimensional schemes to be considered are quite different (cf. Sects. and  2.3.4).
