Trace ideals, normalization chains, and endomorphism rings

26 Nov 2019  ·  Faber Eleonore ·

In this paper we consider reduced (non-normal) commutative noetherian rings $R$. With the help of conductor ideals and trace ideals of certain $R$-modules we deduce a criterion for a reflexive $R$-module to be closed under multiplication with scalars in an integral extension of $R$... Using results of Greuel and Kn\"orrer this yields a characterization of plane curves of finite Cohen--Macaulay type in terms of trace ideals. Further, we study one-dimensional local rings $(R,\mathfrak{m})$ such that that their normalization is isomorphic to the endomorphism ring $\mathrm{End}_R(\mathfrak{m})$: we give a criterion for this property in terms of the conductor ideal, and show that these rings are nearly Gorenstein. Moreover, using Grauert--Remmert normalization chains, we show the existence of noncommutative resolutions of singularities of low global dimensions for curve singularities. read more
