Abstract: The concept of a generalized complete intersection (GCI) of affine schemes is introduced. The proofs of the following theorems are then sketched. Theorem 1. Suppose $ X$ is a $ GCI$ of affine Cohen-Macaulay schemes of codimension $ \leqslant 2$. Then if the versal deformation space of $ X$ exists, it is smooth. Theorem 2. Suppose $ X$ is a $ GCI$ of determinantal schemes. Then if $ \dim X$ is sufficiently low, $ X$ is smoothable. In particular, if $ X$ is as in Theorem 1 and $ \dim X < 4$ then $ X$ is smoothable.
