THE FREE COVER OF A ROW CONTRACTION WILLIAM ARVESON
 

Summary: 



THE FREE COVER OF A ROW CONTRACTION



WILLIAM ARVESON



Abstract. We establish the existence and uniqueness of finite free res-
olutions - and their attendant Betti numbers - for graded commuting
d-tuples of Hilbert space operators. Our approach is based on the no-
tion of free cover of a (perhaps noncommutative) row contraction. Free
covers provide a flexible replacement for minimal dilations that is bett*
*er
suited for higher-dimensional operator theory.
For example, every graded d-contraction that is finitely multi-cyclic
