### on the ``generic" modules of finite length (skyscrapers)

Let $R$ be a local or graded ring. (If it helps, can assume the ring is "good", e.g. $R=k[[x_1,..,x_p]]$, where $k$ is a field of zero characteristic.)
Let $M$ be a finitely generated $R$-module ...

### trying to understand particular modules, to contruct some nice free resolutions

Let $R$ be a local or graded ring, fix some morphism $\phi\in Hom_R (R^{\oplus n},R^{\oplus m})=:Mat(m,n;R)$.
In various applications one meets modules like $\frac{Mat(m,n;R)}{Span(U ...

### Different ways of having infinite global dimension

Is there any ring $R$ of infinite global dimension such that any $R$-module is a retract (i.e. direct summand) of some $\oplus_{i\in I}M_i$ where each $M_i$ has finite projective dimension?
I ask ...

### Is there a notion of 'local ample/Kähler cone' for resolved singularities?

Google searches for "local ample cone" and "local Kähler cone" yield no results, but maybe there is a different term.
Let $\pi : \hat X \to X$ be a resolution of an isolated singularity on the ...
