Next semester (which in Bonn runs from roughly April to July) we will be running a (graduate) seminar on exceptional collections, with a view towards partial flag varieties. The two main goals are:

  • to familiarise ourselves with derived categories of finite-dimensional algebras, and important concepts such as Ringel duality and quasi-hereditary algebras
  • to familiarise ourselves with the geometry of partial flag varieties, and their derived categories, to understand the existence and structure of exceptional collections

We will have an organisational meeting this Wednesday, at 10h15 in room 0.011. If you would like to give a talk but can't make it on Wednesday, please send me an email, especially if you are a Bonn graduate student.

For more details (to come), see the seminar webpage, with a detailed program likely appearing tomorrow, and otherwise on Wednesday.
