# Questions tagged [grothendieck-riemann-roch]

The Grothendieck–Riemann–Roch theorem is a far-reaching result on coherent cohomology. It is a generalisation of the Hirzebruch–Riemann–Roch theorem, about complex manifolds, which is itself a generalisation of the classical Riemann–Roch theorem for line bundles on compact Riemann surfaces.

### Simple Grothendieck-Riemann-Roch computation with relative Todd class

$\DeclareMathOperator\Tot{Tot}\DeclareMathOperator\ch{ch}\DeclareMathOperator\td{td}\DeclareMathOperator\ker{ker}\DeclareMathOperator\rk{rk}$I was wondering if the following is correct: Let $X=\Tot(L)$...

### What is the Todd class *really*?

My question is about how to think about the Todd class. Usually this is presented via Grothendieck Riemann Roch (GRR): if $X$ is a smooth projective scheme over a field $\mathbf{C}$, the chern ...

### For a given $E\to X$ find $\xi\to \mathbb{P}E^*$ such that $\pi_*\operatorname{ch}(\xi)=\operatorname{ch}(E)$

$\DeclareMathOperator\ch{ch}$This is a specification of the question For given bundle $E\to X$ find $\xi\to Y$ such that $\pi_*ch(\xi)=ch(E)$. Let $E\to X$ be a holomorphic vector bundle over a ...

### For given bundle $E\to X$ find $\xi\to Y$ such that $\pi_*ch(\xi)=ch(E)$

Let $\pi:X\to Y$ a projective morphism and $F\to X$ a vector bundle. The Grothendieck-Riemann-Roch theorem states that $$\pi_*(ch(F)td(\pi))=ch(\pi_!F)$$ where $td(\pi)$ denotes the relative Todd ...

### Can we move curves which are members of very ample systems?

Let us take the second degree Hirzebruch surface $\mathbb{F}_2$ which is a holomorphic $\mathbb{CP}^1$ bundle over $\mathbb{CP}^1$ having sections of self intersections $+2$ and $-2$. Let me denote ...

### Reflection-invariant monomial ideals and Alexander duality

First we give some definitions from Section 3 of the paper Monomials, Binomials, and Riemann-Roch by Manjunath and Sturmfels and then we restate a claim from that paper offered without proof. Finally ...

### $ch(L f^*\epsilon)$

I know the famous principle (or theorem depending on how you define) of Chern classes for locally free sheaves and a morphism $f: X'\rightarrow X$, $ch(f^* \epsilon)=f^* ch(\epsilon)$. But if $f$ ...

### A question on Grothendieck Riemann Roch

As an exercise for myself I wanted to check GRR in the following situation. Consider $P:X \rightarrow B$ to be an Weierstrass elliptic fibration with a section, and $X\times_B X$ be the fiber product ...

### Local family index theorem, but with Chern class?

Let $\pi:X\to B$ be a proper submersion with spin fibers, and $E\to X$ a Hermitian vector bundle with a unitary connection $\nabla$. Then the local family index theorem for spin Dirac operator twisted ...

The Riemann-Roch without denominators can be expressed as follows: Let $f: X\rightarrow Y$ be a closed embedding of quasi-projective smooth $k$-varieties of codimension $d$ for some field $k$. Let $E$ ...

### Pushforward of tensor product of holomorphic vector bundles

Let $M$ be a complex manifold, $\Sigma$ a Riemann surface of genus $g$, and $E, F$ holomorphic vector bundles on $M\times\Sigma$. If $\pi: M\times \Sigma\to M$ is the projection map, is it possible to ...

### Equivariant Riemann-Roch on DM stacks?

Does an equivariant version of (Toen)-Riemann-Roch theorem hold say over a smooth Deligne-Mumford stack $X$ over the complex numbers? Any references that state this explicitely? Are there formulas ...

### Riemann-Roch for curves over Dedekind domains and base-change for modular forms

In p-adic properties of modular schemes and modular forms Katz formulates the following base change theorem as Theorem 1.7.1 Let $n\geq 3$ and $\overline{\mathcal{M}}_n$ be the compactified moduli ...

### Faltings-Riemann-Roch Theorem

I found the famous Faltings book Lectures on arithmetic Riemann-Roch theorem". In the book, very analytic techniques such as Garding inequality or heat kernel are explained. I have no idea where ...
