Abstract: A double line is a nonreduced locally Cohen-Macaulay scheme of degree two supported on a line in projective three-space. The heart of this work is to compute the associated Hartshorne-Rao module for such a curve. We can then say exactly when two such curves are in the same liaison class and in fact when they are directly linked. In particular, we find that $ C$ is only self-linked in characteristic two.
