A hands-on approach to tensor product surfaces of bidegree (2,1) Seceleanu, Alexandra


A central problem in geometric modeling is to find the implicit equations for a curve or surface defined by a regular or rational map. For surfaces the two most common situations are when the surface is given by a map \(\mathbb{P}^1\times \mathbb{P}^1 \to \mathbb{P}^3\) or \(\mathbb{P}^2 \to \mathbb{P}^3\). The image of regular map \(\mathbb{P}^1\times \mathbb{P}^1 \to \mathbb{P}^3\) is called a tensor product surface. We study singularities of tensor product surfaces parametrized by polynomials of bidegree (2, 1) in relation to the syzygies of the ideal generated by these polynomials. We determine all possible numerical types of bigraded minimal free resolutions of such an ideal. This is based on joint work with Hal Schenck and Javid Validashti.
