When is Hilbert-Samuel multiplicity of a local ring non-increasing along localization at prime ideals?

For Noetherian local ring $(R,\mathfrak m)$, let $e(R)$ denote the Hilbert-Samuel multiplicity of $R$ with respect to $\mathfrak m$ (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hilbert%E2%80%93Samuel_function#...

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 ...

Flatness of affine cone due to semicontinuity theorem

I would like to clarify an important aspect from the discussion in this question. The OP discussed an obstacle to solve part (c) from Exercise 9.5 from Hartshorne's Algebraic Geometry Chap. III page ...

Simple proof that the arithmetic genus is non-negative

I take an irreducible and reduced closed curve $C\subseteq \mathbb{P}^n$, defined over an algebraically closed field $k$ and define the arithmetic genus $p_a(C)$ as the integer such that the Hilbert ...

Is the Hilbert series of an ideal related to the Hilbert series of its homogenization?

Suppose we have a field $k$ of characteristic 0, let $I$ be an ideal of $R=k[x_1,...,x_n]$, and let $H$ be the homogenization of $I$ in $S=R[z]$. Is there any relationship between the Hilbert series ...

Segre embedding and Hilbert polynomial of coherent sheaves

Let $X \subset \mathbb{P}^n$ and $Y \subset \mathbb{P}^m$ be smooth, projective subvarieties, $F$ and $G$ coherent, torsion-free, sheaves on $X$ and $Y$ with Hilbert polynomials $P_{F}$ and $P_G$, ...

References for Hilbert schemes over non-Archimedean valuation

Can you suggest me some suitable references to learn the theory of Hilbert polynomials (or related Hilbert schemes) in the non-Archimedean setting? Thanks.

Hilbert polynomial of structure sheaf of hypersurfaces

Is there an example of a hypersurface $X$ of some projective space $\mathbb{P}^n$ such that there exists an invertible sheaf $\mathcal{L}$ on $X$, not isomorphic to the structure sheaf $\mathcal{O}_X$,...

Roots of the Hilbert polynomial of an invertible sheaf

Let $X$ be a smooth, projective variety over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero. Fix a polarisation on $X$. Let $\mathcal{L}$ be an invertible sheaf on $X$ with Hilbert polynomial, ...

Examples of smooth projective varieties with "nice" Picard group

I am looking for examples of smooth projective varieties $(X,H)$ with $H$ a polarization on $X$, $\dim \mbox{Pic}^0(X)=0$, $\mbox{Pic}(X) \not= \mathbb{Z}$ satisfying the property: for any two line ...

Hilbert functions of graded modules generated by mapped generators

I need to prove the following claim for my work. Intuitively, the claim should hold as it is analogous to the concept of an initial module, but a rigorous approach for the same I cannot find. Any help ...

Hilbert Regularity in relation to degree of generators

Suppose we look at the $\mathbb {C}$ module $\mathbb{C}[x_1,\dots,x_n]=\oplus{S_i}$ where $S_i$ are the polynomials of degree $i$. Then we look at a subring $R$ (also a $\mathbb {C}$ module) ...

Hypersurfaces containing a general chain of lines

Let $X$ be a general chain of $d$ lines in $\mathbb P^n$, where $n \geq 3$. Let $I$ be the homogeneous ideal of polynomials vanishing on $X$. What is the Hilbert function $$P(k) = \dim I_k$$ of $X$? ...

Assume that $X_1,\ldots,X_r\subseteq\mathbb P^n$ are irreducible, reduced hypersurfaces in complex projective space, each of the same degree $d$. In other words, $X_i=Z_\ast(f_i)$ for certain ...
