 Fat Points in $\mathbb{P}^1 \times \mathbb{P}^1$ and Their Hilbert Functions We study the Hilbert functions of fat points in $\popo$. If $Z \subseteq \popo$ is an arbitrary fat point scheme, then it can be shown that for every $i$ and $j$ the values of the Hilbert function $_{Z}(l,j)$ and $H_{Z}(i,l)$ eventually become constant for $l \gg 0$. We show how to determine these eventual values by using only the multiplicities of the points, and the relative positions of the points in $\popo$. This enables us to compute all but a finite number values of $H_{Z}$ without using the coordinates of points. We also characterize the ACM fat point schemes sing our description of the eventual behaviour. In fact, n the case that $Z \subseteq \popo$ is ACM, then the entire Hilbert function and its minimal free resolution depend solely on knowing the eventual values of the Hilbert function.

 An Algorithm for Fat Points on $\mathbf{P}^2 Let$F$be a divisor on the blow-up$X$of$\pr^2$at$r$general points$p_1, \dots, p_r$and let$L$be the total transform of a line on$\pr^2$. An approach is presented for reducing the computation of the dimension of the cokernel of the natural map$\mu_F \colon \Gamma \bigl( \CO_X(F) \bigr) \otimes \Gamma \bigl( \CO_X(L) \bigr) \to \Gamma \bigl( \CO_X(F) \otimes \CO_X(L) \bigr)$to the case that$F$is ample. As an application, a formula for the dimension of the cokernel of$\mu_F$is obtained when$r = 7$, completely solving the problem of determining the modules in minimal free resolutions of fat point subschemes\break$m_1 p_1 + \cdots + m_7 p_7 \subset \pr^2$. All results hold for an arbitrary algebraically closed ground field~$k\$. Keywords:Generators, syzygies, resolution, fat points, maximal rank, plane, Weyl groupCategories:13P10, 14C99, 13D02, 13H15
