ABSTRACT A commutative local ring is generally defined to be a complete intersection
if its completion is isomorphic to the quotient of a regular local ring by an
ideal generated by a regular sequence. It has not previously been determined
whether or not such a ring is necessarily itself the quotient of a regular ring
by an ideal generated by a regular sequence. In this article, it is shown that
if a complete intersection is a one dimensional integral domain, then it is
such a quotient. However, an example is produced of a three dimensional
complete intersection domain which is not a homomorphic image of a regular
local ring, and so the property does not hold in general.

    ABSTRACT: Let A be a commutative Noetherian ring of Krull dimension n. Let I be a local complete intersection ideal of height n. Suppose (A/I) is torsion in K0(A). It is proved that I is a set theoretic complete intersection if one of the following conditions holds: (1) n is two; (2) n is odd; (3) n⩾4 even, and A contains the field of rational numbers.

    ABSTRACT: We survey some recent developments in understanding homological properties of finitely generated modules over a complete intersection. These properties mainly concern with vanishing patterns of Ext and Tor functors. We focus on applications to related areas and open questions.

    ABSTRACT: Let C be a curve over ℝ in the sense of A. Tognoli [”Algebraic geometry and Nash functions” (1978; Zbl 0418.14002)]. In this report the following problem is studied: Does there exist an embedding ϕ : C→ℝ n satisfying (i) Γ (C,O C )≅N -1 ℝ[ϕ(C)], where N={s∈ℝ[ϕ(C)]|s(x)≠0∀x∈ϕ(C)}· (ii) ℝ[ϕ(C)] is an abstract complete intersection. The results are related to Kumar’s work on complete intersections in the case of finitely generated algebras over a field [N. M. Kumar, J. Math. Kyoto Univ. 17, 533-538 (1977; Zbl 0384.14016)].
