Free linear systems on integral Gorenstein curves. (English) Zbl 0770.14002
One introduces and studies the notion of free linear systems on Gorenstein curves, designated to play a similar role as that of base point free linear systems on smooth curves. In particular one proves a “free pencil trick”. – Some applications to integral plane curves are indicated.
