Hilbert–Samuel multiplicity under hypersurface sections

Let $\newcommand{\frakm}{\mathfrak{m}}(R,\frakm)$ be a reduced Noetherian local ring of dimension $d$ and $f\in\frakm^\alpha\setminus\frakm^{\alpha+1}$ a parameter of $R$, i.e. $\dim R/(f)=d-1$. Let $...

Symmetric 0-dimensional schemes with generic Hilbert function and Grassmannians

I've came across this problem while thinking about some properties of fat schemes. Let me give you an explicit (motivating) example: We have $S=\mathbb{C}[x,y,z]$, the coordinate ring of $\mathbb{P}^2$...

Hilbert polynomials of graded algebras evaluated at negative numbers

Let $k$ be a field and let $R$ be a commutative (standard) graded $k$-algebra, that is, $R=\bigoplus_{n=0}^\infty R_n$ with $R_0=k$ (and $R=k[R_1]$). The Hilbert function $h_R:\mathbb{N}\rightarrow \...

For a vector bundle over a curve, is there a condition on the Hilbert polynomial for no non-zero section?

Assume we are over $\mathbb C$. Let $C$ be a complete algebraic curve, and $E$ an algebraic vector bundle. Its Hilbert polynomial is $$p(t)=rt+r(1-g)+d$$ where $r=\mathrm{rank}(E)$ and $d=\deg(E)$ and ...
