Scientific proposal:My principal interest concerns actually the generalizations of the classicalMaslovindex as secondary characteristic classes, with applications to spontaneous symetry breaking ofYang-Millsfields following the dimensional reduction mechanism. In algebraic-geometric terms, certain homogeneous stable vector bundles on an algebraic variety correspond after dimensional reduction, using the results ofGarcia-PradoandBradlow, to a stable pair on the quotient variety. The geometric quantization problem that corresponds to the associatedYang-Mills-Higgssystem depends on the higher dimensionalMaslovclasses and the problem is to find the relations which are between these naturally related structures.

Scientific proposal:The aim of this research plan is an investigation into the projective geometry of the moduli spaces of rank-2 vector bundles. We seek especially results on their ideals in certain known projective embeddings, as well as the geometry of their Brill-Noether subschemes. The principal case we propose to study is the moduli space

{\cal SU}_C(2)of rank 2 vector bundles with trivial determinant, embedded in the2\Theta-linear system. It is a locally factorial, irreducible, projective variety. Its non-stable part can be canonically identified to theKummervarietyKm(J)ofJ(ifg \geq 3,Km(J)is precisely the singular locus of{\cal SU}_C(2)). Its Picard group is generated by a line bundle{\cal L}, which gives rise to a finite morphism\theta:{\cal SU}_C(2) \rightarrow |{\cal L}|^* \cong |2\Theta|.There are very important things known about the structure of the morphism

\theta. For example, ifChas genus two, then\thetais an isomorphism of{\cal SU}_C(2)onto|2\Theta|\cong{\bf P}^3, ifCis hyperelliptic of highere genus, then\thetais 2-to-1 onto a subvariety of|2\Theta|that can be described in an explicit way, and ifCis not hyperelliptic of higher genus,\thetais of degree 1 onto its image.If

Chas genus three, a result ofNarasimhanandRamanansays that\thetais an isomorphism to a special Heisenberg-invariant quarticQ_C\subset |2\Theta| \cong {\bf P}^7, called theCoble quarticofC. It is characterised by either of two properties:Q_Cis the unique Heisenberg-invariant quartic containingKm(J)in its singular locus; andQ_Cis the set of2\Theta-divisors containig some translate of the image of the Abel-Jacobi mapW_1 \subset J^1(C). In the genus four case, assuming thatChas no vanishing theta-nulls,OxburyandPaulygot twodistincthypersurfaces in|2\Theta| \cong {\bf P}^{15}: a unique Heisenberg-invariant quarticQ_C \subset |2\Theta|containing the image of{\cal SU}_C(2)in its singular locus, andG_C \subset |2\Theta|, the set of2\Theta-divisors containig some translate ofW_1 \subset J^1(C).For higher-genus curves there is no similar result known up to now. It seems that one needs firstly to get a better understanding of the genus four case. There are several basic open questions about the hypersurfaces

G_CandQ_C, which we propose to answer to. For example, isG_Ca quartic? We could also try to deal with a converse problem: instead of asking whether such a given hypersurface has degree four, we can ask how can one construct quartics singular along{\cal SU}_C(2), and thus singular alongKm(J)(NarasimhanandRamananconjectured that the moduli space is set-theoretically cut out by quartics, so one expects plenty)? It is possibleG_CandQ_Cto be elements in aspecialfamily of Heisenberg-invariant quartics, and it would be nice to find out what kind ofcanonicalspecial families, containingQ_CandG_Camong their members, can appear. We also propose to decide whether the singular locus ofQ_Cand the image of{\cal SU}_C(2)in|2\Theta|are coincident or not.

Scientific proposal:The use of syzygies in the study of Hibert schemes or moduli spaces. The first study which I would like to accomplish is that of certain Hilbert schemes of curves inP^3, beginning with the Hilbert schemes of degree4Cohen Macaulay curves. One of the difficult problem is the decomposition in connected or irreductible components. For degree up to3there is known in the literature that the Hilbert scheme is connected. The difficulty lies in the understandig of the curves with nilpotents. Possible collaboration withW. Decker,F.O. Schreyerand may be also other mathematicians.

Scientific proposal:Topics concerning the classification of projective embedded curves.

Let's denote by

I'(d,g,n)(resp.I"(d,g,n)) the union of components of the Hilbert schemeH(d,g,n)corresponding to smooth, irreducible, non-degenerate (resp. linearly normal) curves inP^n.

P1:Find the integers(d,g,n),n > 2, such thatI'(d,g,n)is nonempty.

P2:Find the integers(d,g,n),n > 2, such thatI"(d,g,n)is nonempty.

P3:For each triplet such thatI'(d,g,n)is nonempty, try to give its description ("good" components, "bad" components, irreducibility, ...).

Collaborations:I had collaborations withA. Lascu,Ph. Ellia(Ferrara),A. Hirschowitz(Nice),D. Laksov(Stokholm),J. Alexander(Angers),R. Strano(Catania) on the ProblemsP1andP3. I have in present a project withJ. Kleppe(Oslo) onP2.

Proposed new (or continuation of old) collaborations with:A. Hirschowitz(Nice),J. Kleppe(Oslo),Rosa Maria Miro-Roig(Barcelona),Ph. Ellia(Ferara),J. Alexander(Nice).I need short-term visits (1-2 weeks). If possible, I need a longer collaboration with

A. Hirschowitz.
