“Derived categories and birational geometry”

Mon 1st - Sat 6th June 2015, University of Warwick

DCat2014-15 Main Venue Program Abstracts Registration

The goal of this workshop is to bring together specialists in birational geometry and derived categories to develop and capitalise on some of the advances made in the last decade in these subjects. These include Kawamata's description of Minimal Model Program for derived categories of toric stacks, Van den Berg and Iyama-Wemyss’ constructions of noncommutative resolutions of singularities and Kuznetsov–Lunts’ construction of a categorical resolution of irrational singularities.

Scope: Minimal model program via derived categories. Mori contractions and exceptional objects, flops and spherical objects. Categorical resolution of singularities. Birational invariants via derived categories. Homological projective duality.
