Hi,

I have been dealing with a problem and I could not find any tools to attack it. The problem is the following,

What extra conditions do I need to show that an affine smooth complete intersection variety is connected?

thanks for the answer and sorry for the sloppiness

the problem deals with varieties which have dimension higher than 24. –  guest Jun 17 '13 at 16:42
    
What kind of conditions are you looking for? In the affine case, it is usually difficult to say something is connected. –  Mohan Jun 17 '13 at 19:03
    
yes it is affine. –  guest Jun 18 '13 at 8:57
    
I thought of homogenizing the vanishing ideal and use the exercise Chapter II 8.4 [Compelete Intersection] which involves Unimixedness Thm (but do I really need that my Ring is Cohen-Macaulay) . OR to do some Bertini type trick since i have an equidimensional variety. Cut with "good" hyperplanes and try to end up with a curve it works specific cases but i cant prove it for general cases. I really appreciate the comment. –  guest Jun 18 '13 at 9:09
