# What is a linear resolution?

Can anyone tell me where I may find an introduction to linear resolutions (of a $k[x_1,\ldots,x_n]$-module or ideal) including, of course, the standard definition of such a resolution, as well as its basic properties?

Thanks in advance.

You can find some things about the linear free resolutions in the book of Bruns and Herzog, Cohen-Macaulay Rings. –  user26857 Jul 11 '12 at 9:18
