Cyclic coverings and higher order embeddings of algebraic varieties
2001 (English)In: Transactions of the American Mathematical Society, ISSN 0002-9947, E-ISSN 1088-6850, Vol. 353, no 3, 877-891 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
In the present paper we study higher order embeddings in the context of cyclic coverings. Analyzing the positivity of the line bundle downstairs and its relationship with the branch divisor, we provide criteria for its pull-back to define an embedding of given order. We show that the obtained criteria are sharp. Finally, we apply them to various - sometimes seemingly unrelated-problems in algebraic geometry.
