• Speaker: Prof Amnon Neeman, Mathematical Sciences Institute, Australian National University
  • Title: From Compactly-Generated to Well-Generated Triangulated Categories
  • Location: Room V129, Mathematics Building (Callaghan Campus) The University of Newcastle
  • Time and Date: 4:00 pm, Thu, 13th Oct 2011
  • Abstract:

    The talk will begin with a reminder of what a triangulated category is, the context in which they arose, and why we care about them. Then we will discuss the theory of compactly generated triangulated categories, again illustrating the applications. This theory is old and well understood. Finally we will come to well generated categories, where several open problems remain very mysterious.
