摘要 Abstract

By degenerating a smooth curve to an curve with one node (irreducible or reducible), we establish two recurrence relations for the dimensions of spaces of generalized theta functions on moduli spaces of semi-stable parabolic bundles on smooth curves of genus $g$, which imply an explicit formula of dimension (Verlinde formula). There are two steps to establish such recurrence relations: (1) factorizations of generalized theta functions over nodal curves;(2) invariance of dimensions during degeneration, which are implied by vanishing theorem of cohomolgy on moduli spaces. The step (1) and step (2) for $g>2$ were done by myself around 2000. However vanishing theorem for $g<3$ remains open.

Recently, we solve this characteristic zero problem by a mothed of characteristic p>0. Namely, we prove that moduli spaces of semi-stable parabolic bundles and generalized parabolic sheaves with fixed determinants are of globally Frobenius regular type, which imply the vanishing theorem for any genus.
