Title: Maps from Feigin and Odesskii's elliptic algebras to twisted homogeneous coordinate rings
Abstract The elliptic algebras in the title are connected graded $\mathbb {C}$ -algebras, denoted $Q_{n,k}(E,\tau )$ , depending on a pair of relatively prime integers $n>k\ge 1$ , an elliptic curve E and a point $\tau \in E$ . This paper examines a canonical homomorphism from $Q_{n,k}(E,\tau )$ to the twisted homogeneous coordinate ring $B(X_{n/k},\sigma ',\mathcal {L}^{\prime }_{n/k})$ on the characteristic variety $X_{n/k}$ for $Q_{n,k}(E,\tau )$ . When $X_{n/k}$ is isomorphic to $E^g$ or the symmetric power $S^gE$ , we show that the homomorphism $Q_{n,k}(E,\tau ) \to B(X_{n/k},\sigma ',\mathcal {L}^{\prime }_{n/k})$ is surjective, the relations for $B(X_{n/k},\sigma ',\mathcal {L}^{\prime }_{n/k})$ are generated in degrees $\le 3$ and the noncommutative scheme $\mathrm {Proj}_{nc}(Q_{n,k}(E,\tau ))$ has a closed subvariety that is isomorphic to $E^g$ or $S^gE$ , respectively. When $X_{n/k}=E^g$ and $\tau =0$ , the results about $B(X_{n/k},\sigma ',\mathcal {L}^{\prime }_{n/k})$ show that the morphism $\Phi _{|\mathcal {L}_{n/k}|}:E^g \to \mathbb {P}^{n-1}$ embeds $E^g$ as a projectively normal subvariety that is a scheme-theoretic intersection of quadric and cubic hypersurfaces.

  1. Abstract We prove an inequality that unifies previous works of the authors on the properties of the Radon transform on convex bodies including an extension of the Busemann–Petty problem and a slicing inequality for arbitrary functions. Let $K$ and $L$ be star bodies in ${\mathbb R}^n,$ let $0<k<n$ be an integer, and let $f,g$ be non-negative continuous functions on $K$ and $L$, respectively, so that $\|g\|_\infty =g(0)=1.$ Then $$\begin{align*} & \frac{\int_Kf}{\left(\int_L g\right)^{\frac{n-k}n}|K|^{\frac kn}} \le \frac n{n-k} \left(d_{\textrm{ovr}}(K,\mathcal{B}\mathcal{P}_k^n)\right)^k \max_{H} \frac{\int_{K\cap H} f}{\int_{L\cap H} g}, \end{align*}$$where $|K|$ stands for volume of proper dimension, $C$ is an absolute constant, the maximum is taken over all $(n-k)$-dimensional subspaces of ${\mathbb R}^n,$ and $d_{\textrm{ovr}}(K,\mathcal{B}\mathcal{P}_k^n)$ is the outer volume ratio distance from $K$ to the class of generalized $k$-intersection bodies in ${\mathbb R}^n.$ Another consequence of this result is a mean value inequality for the Radon transform. We also obtain a generalization of the isomorphic version of the Shephard problem.
  2. Abstract Inspired by Lehmer’s conjecture on the non-vanishing of the Ramanujan $$\tau $$ τ -function, one may ask whether an odd integer $$\alpha $$ α can be equal to $$\tau (n)$$ τ ( n ) or any coefficient of a newform f ( z ). Balakrishnan, Craig, Ono and Tsai used the theory of Lucas sequences and Diophantine analysis to characterize non-admissible values of newforms of even weight $$k\ge 4$$ k ≥ 4 . We use these methods for weight 2 and 3 newforms and apply our results to L -functions of modular elliptic curves and certain K 3 surfaces with Picard number $$\ge 19$$ ≥ 19 . In particular, for the complete list of weight 3 newforms $$f_\lambda (z)=\sum a_\lambda (n)q^n$$ f λ ( z ) = ∑ a λ ( n ) q n that are $$\eta $$ η -products, and for $$N_\lambda $$ N λ the conductor of some elliptic curve $$E_\lambda $$ E λ , we show that if $$|a_\lambda (n)|<100$$ | a λ ( n ) | < 100 is odd with $$n>1$$ n > 1 and $$(n,2N_\lambda )=1$$ ( n , 2 N λ ) = 1 , then $$\begin{aligned} a_\lambda (n) \in&\{-5,9,\pm 11,25,more »\pm 41, \pm 43, -45,\pm 47,49, \pm 53,55, \pm 59, \pm 61,\\&\pm 67, -69,\pm 71,\pm 73,75, \pm 79,\pm 81, \pm 83, \pm 89,\pm 93 \pm 97, 99\}. \end{aligned}$$ a λ ( n ) ∈ { - 5 , 9 , ± 11 , 25 , ± 41 , ± 43 , - 45 , ± 47 , 49 , ± 53 , 55 , ± 59 , ± 61 , ± 67 , - 69 , ± 71 , ± 73 , 75 , ± 79 , ± 81 , ± 83 , ± 89 , ± 93 ± 97 , 99 } . Assuming the Generalized Riemann Hypothesis, we can rule out a few more possibilities leaving $$\begin{aligned} a_\lambda (n) \in \{-5,9,\pm 11,25,-45,49,55,-69,75,\pm 81,\pm 93, 99\}. \end{aligned}$$ a λ ( n ) ∈ { - 5 , 9 , ± 11 , 25 , - 45 , 49 , 55 , - 69 , 75 , ± 81 , ± 93 , 99 } .« less
  3. Abstract

    Let $S$ be a scheme and let $\pi : \mathcal{G} \to S$ be a ${\mathbb{G}}_{m,S}$-gerbe corresponding to a torsion class $[\mathcal{G}]$ in the cohomological Brauer group ${\operatorname{Br}}^{\prime}(S)$ of $S$. We show that the cohomological Brauer group ${\operatorname{Br}}^{\prime}(\mathcal{G})$ of $\mathcal{G}$ is isomorphic to the quotient of ${\operatorname{Br}}^{\prime}(S)$ by the subgroup generated by the class $[\mathcal{G}]$. This is analogous to a theorem proved by Gabber for Brauer–Severi schemes.

  4. Abstract

    Let $k$ be an algebraically closed field of characteristic $p$, and let ${\mathcal{O}}$ be either $k$ or its ring of Witt vectors $W(k)$. Let $G$ be a finite group and $B$ a block of ${\mathcal{O}} G$ with normal abelian defect group and abelian $p^{\prime}$ inertial quotient $L$. We show that $B$ is isomorphic to its second Frobenius twist. This is motivated by the fact that bounding Frobenius numbers is one of the key steps towards Donovan’s conjecture. For ${\mathcal{O}}=k$, we give an explicit description of the basic algebra of $B$ as a quiver with relations. It is a quantized version of the group algebra of the semidirect product $P\rtimes L$.

  5. Abstract Let X be a simply connected closed oriented manifold of rationally elliptic homotopy type. We prove that the string topology bracket on the $S^1$ -equivariant homology $ {\overline {\text {H}}}_\ast ^{S^1}({\mathcal {L}} X,{\mathbb {Q}}) $ of the free loop space of X preserves the Hodge decomposition of $ {\overline {\text {H}}}_\ast ^{S^1}({\mathcal {L}} X,{\mathbb {Q}}) $ , making it a bigraded Lie algebra. We deduce this result from a general theorem on derived Poisson structures on the universal enveloping algebras of homologically nilpotent finite-dimensional DG Lie algebras. Our theorem settles a conjecture of [7].
