Explicit deformation of lattice ideals via chip-firing games on directed graphs. (English) Zbl 1328.05119
Summary: For a finite index sublattice \(L\) of the root lattice of type \(A\), we construct a deterministic algorithm to deform the lattice ideal \(I_{\mathrm{L}}\) to a nearby generic lattice ideal, answering a question posed by E. Miller and B. Sturmfels [Combinatorial commutative algebra. New York, NY: Springer (2005; Zbl 1066.13001)]. Our algorithm is based on recent results of D. Perkinson et al. [Contemp. Math. 605, 211–256 (2013; Zbl 1320.05060)] concerning commutative algebraic aspects of chip-firing on directed graphs. As an application of our deformation algorithm, we construct a cellular resolution of the lattice ideal \(I_{\mathrm{L}}\) by degenerating the Scarf complex of its deformation.
