2 Regularity jumps The goal of this section is to show that the regularity of the powers of an ideal can jump for the first time at any place. This happens already in 4 variables. Let R be the polynomial ring K[x1 , x2 , z1 , z2 ] and for d > 1 define the ideal d+1 J = (x1 zd1 , x1 zd2 , x2 zd−1 . 1 The ideal J k has linear quotients for all k < d and J d has a firstsyzygy of degree d. In particular reg(J k ) = k(d + 1) for all k < d and reg(J d ) ≥ d(d + 1) + d − 1 and this holds independently of K.

If α1 > 0 and β3 > 0 and u1 > 0 (6) then Equation (3) does the job. If instead α2 > 0 and β3 > 0 and u2 ≥ d − 1 (7) then Equation (4) does the job. So it is enough to show that either (6) or (7) holds. By contradiction, assume that both (6) and (7) do not hold. Note that (ii) and (vi) imply that β3 > 0. Also note that if a = b then F has bidegree (0, a) and hence must be divisible by (3), which is impossible since a < d. So we may assume that b < a. But then u1 + u2 = (a − b)(d + 1) ≥ d + 1 and hence either u1 > 0 or u2 ≥ d − 1.

14 Let R be a one-dimensional Noetherian integral domain with finite integral closure. Then any integrally closed ideal is reflexive. In particular, for any ideal I its bidual (I −1 )−1 is contained in its integral closure I. Proof. We may assume that R is a local ring, of integral closure B. An ideal L is integrally closed if L = R ∩ LB. Since B is a principal ideals domain, LB = xB for some x. We claim that xB is reflexive. Let C = B−1 = HomR (B, R) be the conductor of B/R. C is also an ideal of B, C = yB, and therefore C−1 = y−1 B−1 = y−1C, which shows that C−1 = B.
