Our next objective is to exhibit linear maximal Cohen-Macaulay modules for rings
dened by the vanishing of the minors of a matrix of indeterminates in two special cases:
one is the case of maximal minors, and the oth

Recall the if R is a Noetherian ring of prime characteristic p > 0, R is called F-nite if
F : R R makes R into a module-nite algebra over
F (R) = cfw_rp : r R,
a subring of R that is also denoted Rp . When R is F -nit

We aim to prove the following result of Paul Monsky, following his paper [P. Monsky,
The Hilbert-Kunz function, Mathematische Annalen 263 (1983) 4349].
Theorem (Monsky). Let (R, m, K) be local where R has prime chara

The following result can be deduced easily from the Buchsbaum-Eisenbud acyclicity
criterion, but we give a short, self-contained argument.
Proposition. Let (R, m, K) be a local ring and N a maximal Cohen-Macaulay mod

We can now analyze all graded maximal Cohen-Macaulay modules for a Veronese subring of the polynomial ring in two variables, and show, as a corollary, that there is a unique
indecomposable linear maximal Cohen-Macaula

The next two results suggest that characteristic p techniques may be helpful in proving
the existence of linear maximal Cohen-Macaulay modules.
Let R be a ring of prime characteristic p > 0. The Frobenius closure I F

Before giving a second proof of the existence of linear maximal Cohen-Macaulay modules
for K[X]/I2 (X) and the extension of this result to the case of more general Segre products,
we want to note that the Segre produ

We want to establish that in the twisted tensor product of two Zd -graded K-algebras,
C K C , one has that if u C and v C are forms of degree 1, then
(u 1 + 1 v)d = ud 1 + 1 v d ,
a property reminiscent of the behavi

We are going to use certain matrix factorizations to construct linear maximal CohenMacaulay modules over hypersurfaces.
Discussion: Cohen-Macaulay modules over hypersurfaces R/f R of nite projective dimension over R.

Before proceeding further with our study of Lechs conjecture, we want to discuss a
result known as the associativity of multiplicities whose proof uses Lechs theorem on
computing multiplicities using ideals generated

Our next objective is to give a matrix factorization of a generic form over Z instead of
Z[]. The idea is to replace the ring Z[] by a ring of matrices over Z.
Discussion: block form. Let R be any associative ring wi
