Exceptional collections on partial flag varieties

In the Sommersemester 2020 we will run a seminar on exceptional collections on partial flag varieties. The goal is to

  • get familiar with exceptional collections and their applications in algebra, algebraic geometry and representation theory
  • discuss them in the context of perverse sheaves
  • discuss them in the context of coherent sheaves, and the conjecture that the derived category has a full exceptional collection

More details will be provided later on.
