Abstract A famous theorem of D. Orlov describes the derived bounded category of coherent sheaves on projective hypersurfaces in terms of an algebraic construction called graded matrix factorizations. In this article, I implement a proposal of E. Segal to prove Orlov’s theorem in the Calabi–Yau setting using a globalization of the category of graded matrix factorizations (graded D-branes). Let X⊂ℙ be a projective hypersurface. Segal has already established an equivalence between Orlov’s category… 
Combinatorial constructions of derived equivalences
Given a certain kind of linear representation of a reductive group, referred to as a quasi-symmetric representation in recent work of \v{S}penko and Van den Bergh, we construct equivalences between
Geometric invariant theory and derived categories of coherent sheaves
Given a quasiprojective algebraic variety with a reductive group action, we describe a relationship between its equivariant derived category and the derived category of its geometric invariant theory
The homological projective dual of Sym^2 P(V)
We study the derived category of a complete intersection X of bilinear divisors in the orbifold Sym^2 P(V). Our results are in the spirit of Kuznetsov's theory of homological projective duality, and
On categorical Donaldson-Thomas theory for local surfaces
We introduce the notion of $\mathbb{C}^{\ast}$-equivariant categorical Donaldson-Thomas theories for moduli spaces of stable sheaves on the total space of a canonical line bundle on a smooth
The derived category of a graded Gorenstein ring
We give an exposition and generalization of Orlov's theorem on graded Gorenstein rings. We show the theorem holds for non-negatively graded rings which are Gorenstein in an appropriate sense and
The derived category of a GIT quotient
Given a quasiprojective algebraic variety with a reductive group action, we describe a relationship between its equivariant derived category and the derived category of its geometric invariant theory
Matrix factorizations in higher codimension
We observe that there is an equivalence between the singularity category of an affine complete intersection and the homotopy category of matrix factorizations over a related scheme. This relies in
Homogeneity of cohomology classes associated with Koszul matrix factorizations
In this work we prove the so-called dimension property for the cohomological field theory associated with a homogeneous polynomial $W$ with an isolated singularity, in the algebraic framework of [A.
On the derived categories of degree d hypersurface fibrations
We provide descriptions of the derived categories of degree d hypersurface fibrations which generalize a result of Kuznetsov for quadric fibrations and give a relative version of a well-known theorem


Derived Categories of Coherent Sheaves and Triangulated Categories of Singularities
In this paper we establish an equivalence between the category of graded D-branes of type B in Landau–Ginzburg models with homogeneous superpotential W and the triangulated category of singularities
Homological algebra on a complete intersection, with an application to group representations
Let R be a regular local ring, and let A = R/(x), where x is any nonunit of R. We prove that every minimal free resolution of a finitely generated A -module becomes periodic of period 1 or 2 after at
BGG correspondence for projective complete intersections
Let k be a field of characteristic zero and P(V) a projective space over kwith homogeneous coordinate ring Sym•(V∗). The classical Bernstein-Gelfand-Gelfand correspondence (cf. [3]) interprets the
On equivalences of derived and singular categories
AbstractLet X and Y be two smooth Deligne-Mumford stacks and consider a pair of functions f: X → $$ \mathbb{A}^1 $$, g:Y → $$ \mathbb{A}^1 $$. Assuming that there exists a complex of sheaves on X ×
Equivalences Between GIT Quotients of Landau-Ginzburg B-Models
We define the category of B-branes in a (not necessarily affine) Landau-Ginzburg B-model, incorporating the notion of R-charge. Our definition is a direct generalization of the category of perfect
Two kinds of derived categories, Koszul duality, and comodule-contramodule correspondence
This paper can be thought of as an extended introduction to arXiv:0708.3398; nevertheless, most of its results are not covered by loc. cit. We consider the derived categories of DG-modules,
Global matrix factorizations
We study matrix factorization and curved module categories for Landau-Ginzburg models (X,W) with X a smooth variety, extending parts of the work of Dyckerhoff. Following Positselski, we equip these
Generators and representability of functors in commutative and noncommutative geometry
We give a sufficient condition for an Ext-finite triangulated category to be saturated. Saturatedness means that every contravariant cohomological functor of finite type to vector spaces is
Triangulated categories of singularities and equivalences between Landau-Ginzburg models
The existence of a certain type of equivalence between triangulated categories of singularities for varieties of different dimensions is proved. This class of equivalences generalizes the so-called
F-term equations near Gepner points
We study marginal deformations of B-type D-branes in Landau-Ginzburg orbifolds. The general setup of matrix factorizations allows for exact computations of F-term equations in the low-energy
