Betti numbers of Buchsbaum complexes. (English) Zbl 0727.55011
Summary: Given non-negative integers $$\beta_ 0,\beta_ 1,...,\beta_ d$$ we construct a d-dimensional Buchsbaum complex $$\Delta$$ over $${\mathbb{Z}}$$ such that $$\tilde H_ i(\Delta;{\mathbb{Z}})\cong {\mathbb{Z}}^{\beta_ i}$$ for all $$0\leq i\leq d$$. This demonstrates (via work of P. Schenzel [Math. Z. 178, 125-142 (1981; Zbl 0472.13012)]) the existence of Stanley-Reisner rings with arbitrarily prescribed Betti numbers for local cohomology.
