Title:  The gamma construction and applications

Abstract:   Hochster and Huneke introduced the gamma construction to prove that test elements (in the sense of tight closure) exist on all rings essentially of finite type over excellent local rings of characteristic p > 0. Since then, the gamma construction has become a useful tool in tight closure theory when studying rings for which the Frobenius map is not module-finite. We present some new results about the gamma construction, which we use to study openness of F-singularities in the non-F-finite setting. We then use a scheme-theoretic version of these results to study asymptotic invariants of line bundles over arbitrary fields.
