Let k be a column in Dβ which starts in position ( j0 , k) and ends in ( j1 , k). Then Dα restricted to [1, . . , p] × [ j0 , j1 ] has j1 − j0 nonzero rows, say the interval [i0 , i1 ] where j1 − j0 = i1 − i0 + 1, and Dα restricted to [i0 , i1 ] × [ j0 , j1 ] is semi-strict with eDα (i0 ) > j0 and sDα (i1 ) < j1 . Proof. 1. 5 by restricting to the bidegree (c1k , c2k ). 2. Now we show eDα (i0 ) > j0 . By the HK-equations there is a (b1j , b2j ) with b2j = c2k . Since the b2j are decreasing, this must happen for j = j0 .

The Betti numbers of S(c) as a T -module can be computed via Koszul homology. 5. We have βi,Tj (S(c) ) = Hi (mc , S) jc . Proof. 6. One has βi,Tj (S(c) ) = 0 provided ( j − i − 1) min(c) ≥ i. Proof. 1 that Hi (mc , S)α = 0 for every α ≥ i(c + ∑ ei ) + c componentwise. Replacing α with j c we have that βi,Tj (S(c) ) = 0 if j c ≥ i(c + ∑ ei ) + c which is equivalent to ( j − i − 1) min(c) ≥ i. In [11] Hering, Schenck and Smith proved that index(S(c) ) ≥ min(c). 7. One has min(c) ≤ index(S(c) ). Moreover, min(c) + 1 ≤ index(S(c) ) if char K = 0 or char K > 1 + min(c).

An Nd -graded K-algebra R = α ∈Nd Rα is called standard if R0 = K and R is generated by Rei with i = 1, . . , d. Clearly R can be presented as a quotient of an 28 W. Bruns et al. Nd -graded polynomial ring S = K[xi j : 1 ≤ i ≤ d, 1 ≤ j ≤ mi ] with the Nd -graded structure induced by assigning deg xi j = ei ∈ Zd . Given a vector c = (c1 , . . , cd ) ∈ Nd , we can consider the Segre–Veronese subring of R associated to it, namely R(c) = R jc . j∈N Our goal is to study the Green–Lazarsfeld index of R(c) .
