Prerequisites and Literature

    All participants are supposed to be familar with sections 10.1 to 10.5 from Chuck Weibel's book on homological algebra. The survey articles from Bernhard Keller's homepage "Derived categories and their uses" and "Derived categories and tilting" are also recommended and cover similar material.

    Moreover, the participants should be familiar with some basic notions from algebraic geometry (at least affine and projective varieties) and representation theory (at least of finite groups over a field).

    Other textbook references for derived and triangulated categories include:

    • Gelfand-Manin: (Methods of) Homological algebra

    • Huybrechts: Fourier-Mukai Transforms in Algebraic Geometry
