Hartog's phenomenon for polyregular functions and projective dimension of related modules over a polynomial ring
Annales de l'Institut Fourier, Volume 47 (1997) no. 2, p. 623-640

In this paper we prove that the projective dimension of n =R 4 /A n is 2n-1, where R is the ring of polynomials in 4n variables with complex coefficients, and A n is the module generated by the columns of a 4×4n matrix which arises as the Fourier transform of the matrix of differential operators associated with the regularity condition for a function of n quaternionic variables. As a corollary we show that the sheaf of regular functions has flabby dimension 2n-1, and we prove a cohomology vanishing theorem for open sets in the space n of quaternions. We also show that Ext j ( n ,R)=0, for j=1,,2n-2 and Ext 2n-1 ( n ,R)0, and we use this result to show the removability of certain singularities of the Cauchy–Fueter system.

Soit R l’anneau des polynômes de 4n variables. Soit A n la transformation de Fourier de la matrice d’opérateurs différentiels associée à la condition de régularité imposée à une fonction de n variables quaternioniques, et A n le module défini par les colonnes de A n . Dans cet article nous prouvons que la dimension projective du module n =R 4 /A n est 2n-1. Nous prouvons ensuite, comme corollaire, que la dimension flasque du faisceau des fonctions régulières est 2n-1, et que certains groupes de cohomologie sont nuls pour les ouverts de l’espace n de quaternions. Nous démontrons que Ext j ( n ,R)=0, pour j=1,,2n-2 et que Ext 2n-1 ( n ,R)0, et nous utilisons ce résultat pour prouver que certaines singularités du système de Cauchy-Fueter peuvent être éliminées.
