Algebraic shifting and strongly edge decomposable complexes

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Let Γ be a simplicial complex with n vertices, and let Δ(Γ) be either its exterior algebraic shifted complex or its symmetric algebraic shifted complex. If Γ is a simplicial sphere, then it is known that (a) Δ(Γ) is pure and (b) h-vector of Γ is symmetric. Kalai and Sarkaria conjectured that if Γ is a simplicial sphere then its algebraic shifting also satisfies (c) Δ (Γ) ⊂ Δ (C(n; d)), where C(n; d) is the boundary complex of the cyclic d-polytope with n vertices. We show this conjecture for strongly edge decomposable spheres introduced by Nevo. We also show that any shifted simplicial complex satisfying (a), (b) and (c) is the algebraic shifted complex of some simplicial sphere.

N2 - Let Γ be a simplicial complex with n vertices, and let Δ(Γ) be either its exterior algebraic shifted complex or its symmetric algebraic shifted complex. If Γ is a simplicial sphere, then it is known that (a) Δ(Γ) is pure and (b) h-vector of Γ is symmetric. Kalai and Sarkaria conjectured that if Γ is a simplicial sphere then its algebraic shifting also satisfies (c) Δ (Γ) ⊂ Δ (C(n; d)), where C(n; d) is the boundary complex of the cyclic d-polytope with n vertices. We show this conjecture for strongly edge decomposable spheres introduced by Nevo. We also show that any shifted simplicial complex satisfying (a), (b) and (c) is the algebraic shifted complex of some simplicial sphere.
