Main talk (2:30pm)
Title: Root systems, moduli spaces, and derived categories
Abstract: Based on ongoing work with Aaron Bertram, in this talk we will explore properties of toric varieties constructed from root systems, their moduli space interpretations due to Losev-Manin and Batyrev-Blume, and decompositions of their bounded derived categories of coherent sheaves.
Pre-talk (1:45pm)
Title: Derived Categories?
Abstract: This pre-talk is intended as a light introduction to derived categories. We will discuss what they are, why I care about them, and how they can be useful in the context of number theory and birational geometry.
