Boij-Söderberg theory is the study of two cones: the first is the cone of graded Betti tables over a polynomial ring, and the second is the cone of cohomology tables of coherent sheaves over projective space. Each cone has a triangulation induced from a certain partial order. Our first result gives a module-theoretic interpretation of this poset structure. The study of the cone of cohomology tables over an arbitrary polarized projective variety is closely related to the existence of an Ulrich sheaf, and our second result shows that such sheaves exist on the class of Schubert degeneracy loci. Finally, we consider the problem of classifying the possible ranks of Betti numbers for modules over a regular local ring.
