Stability properties of powers of ideals in regular local rings of small dimension

Jürgen Herzog and Amir Mafi

Vol. 295 (2018), No. 1, 31–41

Let (R,m) be a regular local ring or a polynomial ring over a field, and let I be an ideal of R which we assume to be graded if R is a polynomial ring. Let astabI, astab¯I and dstabI, respectively, be the smallest integers n for which AssIn, Ass I¯n and depthIn stabilize. Here I¯n denotes the integral closure of In.

We show that astabI = astab¯I = dstabI if dimR 2, while already in dimension three, astabI and astab¯I may differ by any amount. Moreover, we show that if dimR = 4, there exist ideals I and J such that for any positive integer c one has astabI dstabI c and dstabJ astabJ c.
