Abstract: We prove a conjecture of R. Lazarsfeld on the syzygies (of the homogeneous ideal) of abelian varieties embedded in projective space by multiples of an ample line bundle. Specifically, we prove that if $A$ is an ample line on an abelian variety, then $A^{\otimes n}$ satisfies the property $N_{p}$ as soon as $n\ge p+ 3$. The proof uses a criterion for the global generation of vector bundles on abelian varieties (generalizing the classical one for line bundles) and a criterion for the surjectivity of multiplication maps of global sections of two vector bundles in terms of the vanishing of the cohomology of certain twists of their Pontrjagin product.
