$A_{\infty}$–resolutions and the Golod property for monomial rings

##### Abstract

Let $R=S∕I$ be a monomial ring whose minimal free resolution $F$ is rooted. We describe an ${A}_{\infty }$–algebra structure on $F\phantom{\rule{0.3em}{0ex}}$. Using this structure, we show that $R$ is Golod if and only if the product on ${Tor}^{S}\left(R,k\right)$ vanishes. Furthermore, we give a necessary and sufficient combinatorial condition for $R$ to be Golod.
