Secant spaces and syzygies of special line bundles on curves

Marian Aprodu and Edoardo Sernesi

Vol. 9 (2015), No. 3, 585–600

On a special line bundle L on a projective curve C we introduce a geometric condition called (Δq). When L = KC, this condition implies gon(C) q + 2. For an arbitrary special L, we show that (Δ3) implies that L has the well-known property (M3), generalising a similar result proved by Voisin in the case L = KC.
