Cover Product and Betti Polynomial of Graphs
For disjoint graphs $G$ and $H$, with fixed
vertex covers
$C(G)$ and $C(H)$, their cover product is the graph $G
\circledast
H$ with vertex set
$V(G)\cup V(H)$ and edge set $E(G)\cup E(H)\cup\{\{i,j\}:i\in
C(G), j\in
C(H)\}$. We describe the graded Betti numbers of $G\circledast
H$ in terms of those of
$G$ and $H$. As applications we obtain: (i) For any positive
integer $k$ there
exists a connected bipartite graph $G$ such that $\operatorname{reg}
R/I(G)=\mu_S(G)+k$, where,
$I(G)$ denotes the edge ideal of $G$, $\operatorname{reg} R/I(G)$
is the CastelnuovoMumford
regularity of $R/I(G)$ and $\mu_S(G)$ is the induced or strong
matching number of
$G$; (ii) The graded Betti numbers of the complement of a tree
only depends upon
its number of vertices; (iii) The $h$vector of $R/I(G\circledast
H)$ is described in
terms of the $h$vectors of $R/I(G)$ and $R/I(H)$. Furthermore,
in a different
direction, we give a recursive formula for the graded Betti numbers
of chordal
bipartite graphs.

On Stanley Depths of Certain Monomial Factor Algebras
Let $S=K[x_1,\ldots,x_n]$
be the polynomial
ring in $n$variables over a field $K$ and $I$ a monomial ideal
of $S$. According to one standard primary decomposition of $I$,
we get a Stanley decomposition of the monomial factor algebra
$S/I$.
Using this Stanley decomposition, one can estimate the Stanley
depth of $S/I$. It is proved that
${\operatorname {sdepth}}_S(S/I)\geq{\operatorname {size}}_S(I)$. When $I$ is squarefree
and ${\operatorname {bigsize}}_S(I)\leq 2$, the Stanley conjecture holds
for
$S/I$, i.e., ${\operatorname {sdepth}}_S(S/I)\geq{\operatorname {depth}}_S(S/I)$.
