# Powers of the theta divisor and relations in the tautological ring

arXiv: Algebraic Geometry
May 2016

We show that the vanishing of the $(g+1)$-st power of the theta divisor on the universal abelian variety $\mathcal{X}_g$ implies, by pulling back along a collection of Abel--Jacobi maps, the vanishing results in the tautological ring of $\mathcal{M}_{g,n}$ of Looijenga, Ionel, Graber--Vakil, and Faber--Pandharipande. We also show that Pixton's double ramification cycle relations, which generalize the theta vanishing relations and were recently proved by the first and third authors, imply Theorem~$\star$ of Graber and Vakil, and we provide an explicit algorithm for expressing any tautological class on $\overline{\mathcal{M}}_{g,n}$ of sufficiently high codimension as a boundary class.
