Abstract: A simple criterion is given for determining ``almost completely'' whether the positively graded complete intersection ring , of dimension , has an pure type singularity at . Specifically, if for and for , then there exists an integer determined by the singular locus of such that: (1) has pure type if . (2) does not have pure type if . The characterization given by this theorem is particularly effective if the singularity of at is isolated. In that case, so that only the condition is not solved by the above result. In particular, it follows from work of Keiichi Watanabe that if has an isolated rational singularity, then has pure type. The converse is also ``almost true'' with the only exception being the case where . In proving this criterion, a weak but more stable form of purity, called contractedness, is defined and explored. is contracted (in characteristic ) if every system of parameters for is contracted with respect to the Frobenius map . Just as for purity, the notion of contracted type is defined in characteristic 0 by reduction to characteristic . The two notions of pure (type) and contracted (type) coincide when is Gorenstein; whence, in particular, when is a complete intersection ring.
