Rees algebras of square-free monomial ideals
We determine the defining equations of the Rees algebra of an ideal $I$ in the case where $I$ is a square-free monomial ideal such that each connected component of the line graph of the hypergraph corresponding to $I$ has at most $5$ vertices. Moreover, we show in this case that the non-linear equations arise from even closed walks of the line graph, and we also give a description of the defining ideal of the toric ring when $I$ is generated by square-free monomials of the same degree. Furthermore, we provide a new class of ideals of linear type. We show that when $I$ is a square-free monomial ideal with any number of generators and the line graph of the hypergraph corresponding to $I$ is the graph of a disjoint union of trees and graphs with a unique odd cycle, then $I$ is an ideal of linear type.
