Abstract. In this article we study CohenMacaulay modules over onedimensional hypersurface singularities and the relationship with representation theory of associative algebras using methods of cluster tilting theory. We give a criterion for existence of cluster tilting objects and their complete description by homological method using higher almost split sequences and results from birational geometry. We obtain a large class of 2CY tilted algebras which are finite dimensional symmetric and satisfies τ 2 = id. In particular, we compute 2CY tilted algebras for simple/minimally elliptic curve singuralities.
On Lines and Joints

"... Let L be a set of n lines in R d, for d ≥ 3. A joint of L is a point incident to at least d lines of L, not all in a common hyperplane. Using a very simple algebraic proof technique, we show that the maximum possible number of joints of L is Θ(n d/(d−1)). For d = 3, this is a considerable simplifica ..."

Let L be a set of n lines in R d, for d ≥ 3. A joint of L is a point incident to at least d lines of L, not all in a common hyperplane. Using a very simple algebraic proof technique, we show that the maximum possible number of joints of L is Θ(n d/(d−1)). For d = 3, this is a considerable simplification of the orignal algebraic proof of Guth and Katz [9], and of the followup simpler proof of Elekes et al. [6]. Some extensions, e.g., to the case of joints of algebraic curves, are also presented.
On the Complexity of the Generalized MinRank Problem

We study the complexity of solving the generalized MinRank problem, i.e. computing the set of points where the evaluation of a polynomial matrix has rank at most r. A natural algebraic representation of this problem gives rise to a determinantal ideal: the ideal generated by all minors of size r + 1 of the matrix. We give new complexity bounds for solving this problem using Gröbner bases algorithms under genericity assumptions on the input matrix. In particular, these complexity bounds allow us to identify families of generalized MinRank problems for which the arithmetic complexity of the solving process is polynomial in the number of solutions. We also provide an algorithm to compute a rational parametrization of the variety of a 0dimensional and radical system of bidegree (D,1). We show that its complexity can be bounded by using the complexity bounds for the generalized MinRank problem.
EQUISINGULAR CALCULATIONS FOR PLANE CURVE SINGULARITIES

Abstract. We present an algorithm which, given a deformation of a reduced plane curve singularity, computes equations for the equisingularity stratum (that is, the µconstant stratum in characteristic 0) in the parameter space of the deformation. The algorithm works for any, not necessarily reduced, parameter space and for algebroid curve singularities C defined over an algebraically closed field of characteristic 0 (or of characteristic p> ord(C)). It provides at the same time an algorithm for computing the equisingularity ideal of J. Wahl. The algorithms have been implemented in the computer algebra system Singular. We show them at work by considering two nontrivial examples. As the article is also meant for nonspecialists in singularity theory, we include a short survey on new methods and results about equisingularity in characteristic 0. Dedicated to the memory of Sevin Recillas 1.

We consider the problem of computing critical points of the restriction of a polynomial map to an algebraic variety. This is of first importance since the global minimum of such a map is reached at a critical point. Thus, these points appear naturally in nonconvex polynomial optimization which occurs in a wide range of scientific applications (control theory, chemistry, economics,...). Critical points also play a central role in recent algorithms ofeffectiverealalgebraicgeometry. Experimentally, it has been observed that Gröbner basis algorithms are efficient to compute such points. Therefore, recent software based on the socalled Critical Point Method are built on Gröbner bases engines. Let f1,...,fp be polynomials in Q[x1,...,xn] of degree D, V ⊂ C n be their complex variety and π1 be the projection map (x1,...,xn) ↦ → x1. Thecriticalpointsoftherestrictionofπ1to V are defined by the vanishing of f1,...,fp and some maximal minors of the Jacobian matrix associated to f1,...,fp. Suchasystemisalgebraicallystructured:theidealitgenerates is the sum of a determinantal ideal and the ideal generated by f1,...,fp. We provide the first complexity estimates on the computation of Gröbner bases of such systems defining critical points. We prove that under genericity assumptions on f1,...,fp, thecomplexityis polynomial in the generic number of critical points, i.e. D p (D − 1) n−p () n−1.Moreparticularly,inthe p−1 quadratic case D =2,thecomplexityofsuchaGröbnerbasiscomputationispolynomial in the number of variables n and exponential in p. We also give experimental evidence supporting these theoretical results.
Enumeration of unisingular algebraic hypersurfaces

We enumerate complex algebraic hypersurfaces in P n, of a given (high) degree with one singular point of a given singularity type. Our approach is to compute the (co)homology classes of the corresponding equisingular strata in the parameter space of hypersurfaces. We suggest an inductive procedure, based on an intersection theory combined with liftings and degenerations. The procedure computes the (co)homology class in question, whenever a given singularity type is properly defined and the stratum possesses good geometric properties. We consider in detail the generalized Newtonnondegenerate singularities. We also give examples of enumeration in some other cases.

Dedicated to Joseph Steenbrink on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday Abstract. In this paper we develop the theory of equisingular deformations of plane curve singularities in arbitrary characteristic. We study equisingular deformations of the parametrization and of the equation and show that the base space of its semiuniveral deformation is smooth in both cases. Our approach through deformations of the parametrization is elementary and we show that equisingular deformations of the parametrization form a linear subfunctor of all deformations of the parametrization. This gives additional information, even in characteristic zero, the case which was treated by J. Wahl. The methods and proofs extend easily to good characteristic, that is, when the characteristic does not divide the multiplicity of any branch of the singularity. In bad characteristic, however, new phenomena occur and we are naturally led to consider weakly trivial respectively weakly equisingular deformations, that is, those which become trivial respectively equisingular after a finite and dominant base change. The semiuniversal base space for weakly equisingular

We study geometric properties of linear strata of unisingular curves. We resolve the singularities of closures of the strata and represent the resolutions as projective bundles. This enables us to study their geometry. In particular we calculate the Picard groups of the strata and the intersection rings of the closures of the strata. The rational equivalence classes of some geometric cycles on the strata are calculated. As an application we give an example when the proper stratum is not affine. As an auxiliary problem we discuss the collision of two singular points, restrictions on possible resulting singularity types and solve the collision problem in several cases. Then we present some cases of enumeration of

Abstract. Let X be a smooth cubic threefold. We can associate two objects to X: the intermediate Jacobian J and the Fano surface F parametrising lines on X. By a theorem of Clemens and Griffiths, the Fano surface can be embedded in the intermediate Jacobian and the cohomology class of its image is minimal. In this paper we show that if X is generic, the Fano surface is the only surface of minimal class in J. 1.
