A blowup algebra for hyperplane arrangements

Mehdi Garrousian, Aron Simis and Ştefan O. Tohăneanu

Vol. 12 (2018), No. 6, 1401–1429

It is shown that the Orlik–Terao algebra is graded isomorphic to the special fiber of the ideal I generated by the (n 1)-fold products of the members of a central arrangement of size n. This momentum is carried over to the Rees algebra (blowup) of I and it is shown that this algebra is of fiber-type and Cohen–Macaulay. It follows by a result of Simis and Vasconcelos that the special fiber of I is Cohen–Macaulay, thus giving another proof of a result of Proudfoot and Speyer about the Cohen–Macaulayness of the Orlik–Terao algebra.
