Description

Triangulated categories are a fundamental tool in homological algebra. In this seminar we will focus both on the abstract theory of triangulated categories and on those triangulated categories which arise naturally in representation theory of finite dimensional algebras.

Prerequisites
  • Elementary category theory, abelian categories
  • Rings and modules, basic homological algebra (Ext and Tor)
  • Basic representation theory of finite dimensional algebras
