Abstract: For certain grade two perfect ideals, there is an expected description of the equations of the Rees algebra. In this paper, the Cohen-Macaulayness of the Rees algebra, numerical invariants of the ideal, and a condition on the minors of a presentation matrix of the ideal are shown to be related to the equations having this form.
