We study questions motivated by results in the classical theory of dynamical systems in the context of triangulated and A-infinity categories. First, entropy is defined for exact endofunctors and computed in a variety of examples. In particular, the classical entropy of a pseudo-Anosov map is recovered from the induced functor on the Fukaya category. Second, the density of the set of phases of a Bridgeland stability condition is studied and a complete answer is given in the case of bounded… 
On the categorical entropy and the topological entropy
TLDR
A conjecture is proposed which naturally generalizes the theorem by Gromov-Yomdin, and it is shown that the categorical entropy of a surjective endomorphism of a smooth projective variety is equal to its topological entropy.
Entropy of the composition of two spherical twists
TLDR
The entropy of the composition of two spherical twists around spherical objects is computed, showing that it depends on the dimension of the graded vector space of morphisms between them.
Curvature of the space of stability conditions
Motivated by study of the autoequivalence group of triangulated categories via isometric actions on metric spaces, we consider curvature properties (CAT(0), Gromov hyperbolic) of the space of
MASS GROWTH OF OBJECTS AND CATEGORICAL ENTROPY
In the pioneering work by Dimitrov–Haiden–Katzarkov–Kontsevich, they introduced various categorical analogies from the classical theory of dynamical systems. In particular, they defined the entropy
On entropy for autoequivalences of the derived category of curves
Categorical entropy, (co-)t-structures and ST-triples
In this paper, we study a dynamical property of an exact endofunctor Φ : D → D of a triangulated category D. In particular, we are interested in the following question: Given full triangulated
Relative stability conditions on Fukaya categories of surfaces
In this paper, we introduce the novel notion of a relative Bridgeland stability condition, in the context of a wrapped Fukaya category of a marked surface with respect to part of its boundary. This
THE THURSTON COMPACTIFICATION OF THE SPACE OF STABILITY CONDITIONS: THE A2 CASE
We define a continuous map from the space of Bridgeland stability conditions on a triangulated category C to an infinite projective space. We conjecture that under some assumptions on the
A Thurston compactification of the space of stability conditions.
We propose a compactification of the moduli space of Bridgeland stability conditions of a triangulated category. Under mild conditions on the triangulated category, we conjecture that this
Algebraic stability conditions and contractible stability spaces
Suppose that C is either a locally-finite triangulated category with finite rank Grothendieck group, or a discrete derived category of finite global dimension. We prove that any component of the

Stability conditions on triangulated categories
This paper introduces the notion of a stability condition on a triangulated category. The motivation comes from the study of Dirichlet branes in string theory, and especially from M.R. Douglas's
Quotient categories, stability conditions, and birational geometry
This article deals with the quotient category of the category of coherent sheaves on an irreducible smooth projective variety by the full subcategory of sheaves supported in codimension greater than
REPRESENTATION OF ASSOCIATIVE ALGEBRAS AND COHERENT SHEAVES
It is proved that a triangulated category generated by a strong exceptional collection is equivalent to the derived category of modules over an algebra of homomorphisms of this collection. For the
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
Orlov spectra: bounds and gaps
The Orlov spectrum is a new invariant of a triangulated category. It was introduced by D. Orlov, building on work of A. Bondal-M. Van den Bergh and R. Rouquier. The supremum of the Orlov spectrum of
REPRESENTABLE FUNCTORS, SERRE FUNCTORS, AND MUTATIONS
This paper studies the categorical version of the concept of mutations of an exceptional set, as used in the theory of vector bundles. The basic object of study is a triangulated category with a
Some examples of spaces of stability conditions on derived categories
We study stability conditions on the derived categories of coherent sheaves on some projective varieties. We give a complete description of the stability manifold for smooth projective curves and we

Using techniques due to Dwyer-Greenlees-Iyengar we construct weight structures in triangulated categories generated by compact objects. We apply our result to show that, for a dg category whose

IN this paper, we present a framework for studying moduli spaces of finite dimensional representations of an arbitrary finite dimensional algebra A over an algebraically closed field k. (The abelian
