Integral closure of bipartite graph ideals. (English) Zbl 1445.13012
Following I. Swanson and C. Huneke [Integral closure of ideals, rings, and modules. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press (2006; Zbl 1117.13001)], for an ideal $$I$$ of a commutative ring $$R$$, the integral closure $$\overline{I}$$ of $$I$$ consists of all elements $$r$$ in $$R$$ that are integral over $$I$$, i.e., for such an element $$r$$, there exist an integer $$n$$ and elements $$a_i\in I^i$$ ($$1\leq i\leq n$$) such that $$r^n+\sum_{i=1}^na_ir^{n-i}=0$$ holds. Recall that $$\overline{I}$$ is an ideal and, it is monomial if $$I$$ is a monomial ideal of a polynomial ring $$\mathbb F[X]$$. For a monomial ideal $$I$$, $$\overline{I}$$ is a monomial ideal generated by all monomials $$u$$ for which there exists an integer $$k$$ such that $$u^k\in I^k$$.
In the paper under review, the authors introduce a log set $$log(F)$$ for any set $$F$$ of monomials, and use it to describe the integral closure of an edge ideal of a complete bipartite graph. The authors also studied the related properties of generalized graph ideals of a strong complete quasi-bipartite graph $$G$$, which has a loop in each vertex, in addition to the complete bipartite structure on $$G$$.
