Powers of ideals and the cohomology of stalks and fibers of morphisms

Marc Chardin

Vol. 7 (2013), No. 1, 1–18

We first provide here a very short proof of a refinement of a theorem of Kodiyalam and Cutkosky, Herzog and Trung on the regularity of powers of ideals. This result implies a conjecture of Hà and generalizes a result of Eisenbud and Harris concerning the case of ideals primary for the graded maximal ideal in a standard graded algebra over a field. It also implies a new result on the regularities of powers of ideal sheaves. We then compare the cohomology of the stalks and the cohomology of the fibers of a projective morphism to the effect of comparing the maximums over fibers and over stalks of the Castelnuovo–Mumford regularities of a family of projective schemes.
