Blowing up monomial ideals, by Marc Levine

Bloch has used Spivakovsky's solution of Hironaka's polyhedral game to show that one can put a morphism in good position with respect to a normal crossing divisor in the target by blowing up faces of the normal crossing divisor. We extend these results to mixed characteristic. In a later paper, this result will be used to extend the localization property of Bloch's cycle complexes to mixed characteristic.
