Some remarks on syzygies of adjoint line bundles

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In this article, we construct examples of n-folds X carrying an ample line bundle A ∈, Pic X such that property Np fails for KX + (n + 1 + p)A. This shows that the condition of Mukai's conjecture is optimal for every n ≥ 1 and p ≥ 0.
