Abstract: Let be the polynomial ring in variables over a field and its graded maximal ideal. Let be homogeneous polynomials of degree generating an -primary ideal, and let be arbitrary homogeneous polynomials of degree . In the present paper it will be proved that the Castelnuovo-Mumford regularity of the standard graded -algebra is at most . By virtue of this result, it follows that the regularity of a simplicial semigroup ring with isolated singularity is at most , where is the multiplicity of and is the codimension of .
