### Constructing a free resolution of a $\mathbb Z[x_1,\dotsc,x_n]$-module using a related free resolution of a $\mathbb Q[x_1,\dotsc,x_n]$-module

I have asked a related question on math.SE here, but the notation is a bit different.
As the title says, I am interested in constructing a finite free resolution of a $\mathbb Z[x_1,\dotsc,x_n]$-...

### The first syzygy module of a binomial ideal

It is known how you compute the first syzygy module of a monomial ideal but it seems an hard work to do the same for binomial ones. I don't know any procedure to aim that, so I would like kindly if ...

### Higher cohomology of projective bundles

Let $C$ be a curve and $L$ be a line bundle with sufficiently large degree. Let $C_p$ denote the $p$-th symmetric product of $C$, which consists of all the effective divisors of degree $p$ on $C$. Let ...

### Stability of syzygy bundles of smooth curves

For a very ample line bundle $L$, the kernel of the surjection $H^0(L)\otimes \mathcal{O}_X\rightarrow L \rightarrow 0$ is denoted by $M_L$ and is called syzygy bundle. In this paper authors claim in ...

### Original proof of Hilbert's syzygy theorem

Does anyone know an English reference for the original proof of Hilbert's syzygy theorem? The three proofs that I know use either:
the theory of projective dimension and change of rings (plus a step ...

### Degrees of syzygies of points in $\mathbb P^2$

Let $X$ be a collection of points in $\mathbb P^2$ over the complex numbers. Let $I_X$ be the defining ideal. I am interested in knowing when:
The syzygies of $I_X$ contains no linear forms. Since ...

### Geometric meaning of Koszul modules

Assume $C$ is a smooth projective curve and $L$ is a line bundle on it. We say $L$ is $p$-very ample if for any effective divisor $D$ of degree $p+1$, the evaluation map $H^0(C,L)\to H^0(C,L\otimes\...

### Question on syzygies

Given a finite dimensional algebra $A$ over a field $K$ with $\Omega^i(D(A)) \cong \Omega^{i+1}(D(A))$ for some $i \geq 1$, where $D(A)=\operatorname{Hom}_K(A,K)$.
Do we then also have $\Omega^{-i}(A)...

### Normal set of points in the plane

When defining the normality of a scheme in the book The Geometry of Syzygies, Eisenbud says that there are just a few facts that are known for their bounds.
Given $X \subset \mathbb{P}^r$, we say ...

### Defining ideals for rational curves in space

A rational normal curve $C_d\subset\mathbb{P}^d$ is defined by quadrics. I guess, for the generic projection $\mathbb{P}^d\stackrel{\pi}{\to}\mathbb{P}^n$ the image $\pi(C_d)$ is still defined by ...
