On projective curves of maximal regularity

  • Markus Brodmann
  • Peter Schenzel


 Let 𝒞⊆ℙrK be a non-degenerate projective curve of degree d>r+1 of maximal regularity so that 𝒞 has an extremal secant line . We show that 𝒞∪ is arithmetically Cohen Macaulay if d<2r−1 and we study the Betti numbers and the Hartshorne-Rao module of the curve 𝒞.
