non-Gorenstein curves; canonical model; trigonal non-Gorenstein curve; scrolls
Throughout, let \(C\) be a curve (i.e., an integral, complete, one-dimensional scheme) over an algebraically closed field of arithmetic genus \(g\). Let \(C'\subseteq {\mathbb P}^{g-1}\) be its canonical model which is defined by the global sections of the dualizing sheaf of \(C\). It is well-known so far that properties on trigonal Gorenstein curves can be deduced whenever its canonical model is contained in a surface scroll; e.g. [\textit{K.-O. St??hr}, J. Pure Appl. Algebra 135, No. 1, 93--105 (1999; Zbl 0940.14018)], [\textit{R. Rosa} and \textit{K.-O. St??hr}, J. Pure Appl. Algebra 174, No. 2, 187--205 (2002; Zbl 1059.14038)].
In this paper the authors study the case where \(C\) is non-Gorenstein and \(C'\) is contained in a scroll surface. Here the concepts ``nearly Gorenstein'' and ``arithmetically normal'' become relevant according respectively to Theorems 5.10 and 4 in [\textit{S. L. Kleiman} and \textit{R. V. Martins}, Geom. Dedicata 139, 139--166 (2009; Zbl 1172.14019)]. Moreover, as looking at for examples, they consider rational monomial curves and show that for such a curve its canonical model is contained in a scroll surface if and only if the curve is trigonal. This leads to the question when a nonhyperelliptic curve can be characterized by its canonical model; in fact, this is worked out for the case of a nonhyperelliptic curve with at most one unibranched singular point. Finally they generalize some results in [\textit{F.-O. Schreyer}, Math. Ann. 275, 105--137 (1986; Zbl 0578.14002)].
