Betti numbers of graded modules and the multiplicity conjecture in the non-Cohen–Macaulay case

Mats Boij and Jonas Söderberg

Vol. 6 (2012), No. 3, 437–454
Abstract

We use results of Eisenbud and Schreyer to prove that any Betti diagram of a graded module over a standard graded polynomial ring is a positive linear combination of Betti diagrams of modules with a pure resolution. This implies the multiplicity conjecture of Herzog, Huneke, and Srinivasan for modules that are not necessarily Cohen–Macaulay and also implies a generalized version of these inequalities. We also give a combinatorial proof of the convexity of the simplicial fan spanned by pure diagrams.
