Maximal Cohen-Macaulay tensor products

14 Aug 2020  ·  Celikbas Olgur, Sadeghi Arash ·

In this paper we are concerned with the following question: if the tensor product of finitely generated modules $M$ and $N$ over a local complete intersection domain is maximal Cohen-Macaulay, then must $M$ or $N$ be a maximal Cohen-Macaulay? Celebrated results of Auslander, Lichtenbaum, and Huneke and Wiegand, yield affirmative answers to the question when the ring considered has codimension zero or one, but the question is very much open for complete intersection domains that have codimension at least two, even open for those that are one-dimensional, or isolated singularities... Our argument exploits Tor-rigidity and proves the following, which seems to give a new perspective to the aforementioned question: if $R$ is a complete intersection ring which is an isolated singularity such that dim($R$) > codim($R$), and the tensor product $M\otimes_R N$ is maximal Cohen-Macaulay, then $M$ is maximal Cohen-Macaulay if and only if $N$ is maximal Cohen-Macaulay. read more
