Part of the Progress in Mathematics book series (PM, volume 264)


Throughout this book, ℙn will be the n-dimensional projective space over an algebraically closed field K of characteristic zero, \( R = K\left[ {x_0 ,x_1 , \ldots ,x_n } \right] \) and \( m = \left[ {x_0 ,x_1 , \ldots ,x_n } \right] \) its homogeneous maximal ideal. If M is a graded R-module, we distinguish two types of duals of M: the R-dual M*:= Hom R (M, R) and the K-dual MV:= HomK (M, K). A scheme V ⊂ ℙn will mean an equidimensional locally Cohen-Macaulay closed subscheme of ℙn. For a subscheme V of ℙn we denote by I V its ideal sheaf, \( I\left( V \right) = H_ * ^0 \left( {\mathcal{I}_V } \right): = \oplus _{t \in \mathbb{Z}} H^0 \left( {\mathbb{P}^n ,\mathcal{I}_V \left( t \right)} \right) \) its saturated homogeneous ideal (unless \( V = \not 0 \), in which case we let I(V) = m), A(V) = R/I(V) the homogeneous coordinate ring, and N v = Hom(I V , O V )the normal sheaf of V.
