For the completion B of a local geometric normal domain, V. Srinivas asked which subgroups of Cl B arise as the image of the map Cl A → Cl B on class groups as A varies among normal geometric domains with B ∼ =Â. For two dimensional rational double point singularities we show that all subgroups arise in this way. We also show that in any dimension, every normal hypersurface singularity has completion isomorphic to that of a geometric UFD. Our methods are global, applying Noether-Lefschetz theory to linear sys…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
