exceptional collection

Contents

Idea

In a derived category of chain complexes, or more generally in a triangulated category or in fact in a stable (infinity,1)-category, an exceptional collection of object is a set of objects such that the Ext-groups (hom-spaces) between them are concentrated in degree 0. It is a full exceptional collection if in addition it generates the category.

an exceptional collection in the derived category of coherent sheaveson a suitable Calabi-Yau variety cone is used to induce a quiver and make the derived category be equivalent to that of its quiver representations.
