Algebra Seminar

Derived categories of moduli spaces of stable rational curves

Ana-Maria Castravet, Northeastern University

Location:  Hill 425
Date & time: Wednesday, 28 March 2018 at 2:00PM - 3:00PM

Abstract:  A question of Manin is whether the derived category of the Grothendieck-Knudsen moduli space M0,n of stable, rational curves with n markings admits a full, strong, exceptional collection that is invariant under the action of the symmetric group Sn. I will present an approach towards answering this question. In particular, I will explain a construction of an invariant full exceptional collection on the Losev-Manin space.

This is joint work with Jenia Tevelev.
