Let S = K[x1, . . . , xn] denote the polynomial ring in n variables over a field K with each deg xi = 1 and IS a homogeneous ideal of S with dim S/I = d. The Hilbert series of S/I is of the form hS/I(λ)/(1 − λ)d, where hS/I(λ) = h0 + h1λ + h2λ2 + ⋯ + hsλs with hs≠ 0 is the h-polynomial of S/I. Given arbitrary integers r ≥ 1 and s ≥ 1, a lexsegment ideal I of S = K[x1,…,xn], where n ≤ max{r,s} + 2, satisfying reg(S/I) = r and deg hS/I(λ) = s will be constructed.

During the participation of the first author in the workshop New Trends in Syzygies, organized by Jason McCullough (Iowa State University) and Giulio Caviglia (Purdue University), Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery, Banff, Canada, June 24 – 29, 2018, a motive for writing the present paper arose from an informal conversation with Marc Chardin. Special thanks are due to the BIRS for providing the participants with a wonderful atmosphere for mathematics.
