Abstract

We present a proof of embedded desingularization for closed subschemes which does not make use of Hilbert-Samuel function and avoids Hironaka's notion of normal flatness (see also \cite{EncinasVillamayor2000} page 224). Given a subscheme defined by equations, we prove that embedded desingularization can be achieved by a sequence of monoidal transformations; where the law of transformation on the equations defining the subscheme is simpler then that used in Hironaka's procedure. This is done by showing that desingularization of a closed subscheme $X$, in a smooth sheme $W$, is achieved by taking an algorithmic principalization for the ideal $I(X)$, associated to the embedded scheme $X$. This provides a conceptual simplification of the original proof of Hironaka. This algorithm of principalization (of Log-resolution of ideals), and this new procedure of embedded desingularization discussed here, have been implemented in MAPLE.
