Postulation of double lines and associated objects in the range of quadrics


Fix a closed subscheme U\subset \mathbb {P}^n. Here we study the integer h^0(\mathcal {I}_U(2))-h^0(\mathcal {I}_{U\cup Y}(2)) when Y is a general double line, a general reducible conic, a general chain of lines or some unreduced structure associated to double structures on linear subspaces.
