## Algebras generated by reciprocals of linear forms

Abstract[ps] [pdf]:Let $\Delta$ be a finite set of nonzero linear forms in several variables with coefficients in a field $\mathbf K$ of characteristic zero. Consider the $\mathbf K$-algebra $C(\Delta)$ of rational functions generated by $\{1/\alpha \mid \alpha \in \Delta \}$. Then the ring $\partial(V)$ of differential operators with constant coefficients naturally acts on $C(\Delta)$. We study the graded $\partial(V)$-module structure of $C(\Delta)$. We especially find standard systems of minimal generators and a combinatorial formula for the Poincar\'e series of $C(\Delta)$. The results are stated in terms of the arrangement $\mathcal{A}_\Delta$ associated with $\Delta$. Our proofs are based on a theorem by Brion-Vergne and results by Orlik-Terao.
