Abstract:

Let $R$ be a commutative ring and $I$ an ideal in $R$ which is locally generated by a regular sequence of length $d$. Then, each f. g. projective $R/I$-module $V$ has an $R$-projective resolution $P.$ of length $d$. In this paper, we compute the homology of the $n$-th Koszul complex associated with the homomorphism $P_1 \rightarrow P_0$ for all $n \ge 1$, if $d=1$. This computation yields a new proof of the classical Adams-Riemann-Roch formula for regular closed immersions which does not use the deformation to the normal cone any longer. Furthermore, if $d=2$, we compute the homology of the complex $N\, \operatorname{Sym}^2 \, \Gamma(P.)$ where $\Gamma$ and $N$ denote the functors occurring in the Dold-Kan correspondence.
