Semistability Criterion for Parabolic Vector Bundles on Curves

By Indranil Biswas and Ajneet Dhillon


We give a cohomological criterion for a parabolic vector bundle on a curve to be semistable. It says that a parabolic vector bundle E* with rational parabolic weights is semistable if and only if there is another parabolic vector bundle F* with rational parabolic weights such that the cohomologies of the vector bundle underlying the parabolic tensor product E* ⊗ F* vanish. This criterion generalizes the known semistability criterion of Faltings for vector bundles on curves and significantly improves the result in [Bis07]
