Abstract:

In the noncommutative geometry of Artin, Van den Bergh, and others, the twisted homogeneous coordinate ring is one of the basic constructions. Such a ring is defined by a $\sigma$-ample divisor, where $\sigma$ is an automorphism of a projective scheme $X$. Many open questions regarding $\sigma$-ample divisors have remained.

We derive a relatively simple necessary and sufficient condition for a divisor on $X$ to be $\sigma$-ample. As a consequence, we show right and left $\sigma$-ampleness are equivalent and any associated noncommutative homogeneous coordinate ring must be noetherian and have finite, integral GK-dimension. We also characterize which automorphisms $\sigma$ yield a $\sigma$-ample divisor.
