Workshop Information

The Workshop:

Derived and triangulated categories were invented independently by Dietrich Puppe and Alexander Grothendieck and his student Jean-Louis Verdier in early 1960's and they play an important role in the various areas of algebra, topology, geometry and physics after the work of Kashiwara, Beilinson-Bernstein-Deligne, Kontsevich, Voevodsky and many others.

This is a subject where several areas of mathematics meet and make unexpected connections. Many important conjectures in algebra, topology and geometry can only be formulated, or explained, in terms of derived categories. For example, the homological mirror symmetry of Kontsevich in mathematical physics, the abelian defect group conjecture of Broue in the representation theory of finite groups, and the Bondal-Orlov conjecture on Calabi-Yau varieties, all rely on derived categories.

The aim of the conference is to bring together a group of top experts from algebra, topology and geometry who are working on derived categories and to present new directions and methods in the subject.
