The algebra of basic covers of a graph G, denoted by A¯(G), was introduced by Herzog as a suitable quotient of the vertex cover algebra. In this paper we compute the Krull dimension of A¯(G) in terms of the combinatorics of G. As a consequence, we get new upper bounds on the arithmetical rank of monomial ideals of pure codimension 2. Furthermore, we show that if the graph is bipartite, then A¯(G) is a homogeneous algebra with straightening laws, and thus it is Koszul. Finally, we characterize the Cohen–Macaulay property and the Castelnuovo–Mumford regularity of the edge ideal of a certain class of graphs.
