Abstract: Generically, the cohomology with coefficients in a local system of rank one on the complement in $ \mathbb{P}^n$ of the union of a finite number of hypersurfaces vanishes except in the highest dimension. We study the non-generic case, in which the cohomology in other dimensions does not vanish. When the hypersurfaces are hyperplanes, many examples of this kind are known. In this paper, we consider the case in which the hypersurfaces need not be hyperplanes. We prove that the hypersurfaces given by some particular linear systems have non-vanishing local system cohomologies.
