Koszul algebras and the Frobenius endomorphisms
Abstract: Let $R$ be a standard graded algebra over a field of characteristic $p > 0$. Let $\phi:R\to R$ be the Frobenius endomorphism. For each finitely generated graded $R$-module $M$, let $^{\phi}M$ be the abelian group $M$ with an $R$-module structure induced by the Frobenius endomorphism. The $R$-module $^{\phi}M$ has a natural grading given by $\deg x=j$ if $x\in M_{jp+i}$ for some $0\le i \le p-1$. In this talk, I\\'ll discuss our new characterization of Koszul algebras saying that $R$ is Koszul if and only if there exists a non-zero finitely generated graded $R$-module $M$ such that $\reg_R \up{\phi}M
