Frobenius and spherical codomains and neighbourhoods

  author={Andreas Hochenegger and Ciaran Meachan},
  journal={arXiv: Category Theory},
Given an exact functor between triangulated categories which admits both adjoints and whose cotwist is either zero or an autoequivalence, we show how to associate a unique full triangulated subcategory of the codomain on which the functor becomes either Frobenius or spherical, respectively. We illustrate our construction with examples coming from projective bundles and smooth blowups. This work generalises results about spherical subcategories obtained by Martin Kalck, David Ploog and the first…

In this article, the existence of Ulrich bundles on projective bundles $${{\mathbb {P}}}({{\mathcal {E}}}) \rightarrow X$$ P ( E ) → X is discussed. In the case, that the base variety X is

Relations among $\mathbb{P}$-Twists

. Given two P -objects in some algebraic triangulated category, we investigate the possible relations among the associated P -twists. The main result is that, under certain technical assumptions, the



Derived categories of cubic and V14 threefolds

We show that the projectivization of the exceptional rank 2 vector bundle on an arbitrary smooth V14 Fano threefold after a certain natural flop turns into the projectivization of an instanton vector

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

Spherical subcategories in algebraic geometry

We study objects in triangulated categories which have a two‐dimensional graded endomorphism algebra. Given such an object, we show that there is a unique maximal triangulated subcategory, in which

Nonexistence of semiorthogonal decompositions and sections of the canonical bundle

We investigate semiorthogonal decomposition(SOD)s of the derived category of coherent sheaves on a smooth proper variety. We prove that global/local sections of the canonical bundle give a strong

A refined derived Torelli theorem for Enriques surfaces

We prove that two general Enriques surfaces defined over an algebraically closed field of characteristic different from 2 are isomorphic if their Kuznetsov components are equivalent. We apply the

New derived symmetries of some hyperkähler varieties

We construct a new autoequivalence of the derived category of the Hilbert scheme of n points on a K3 surface, and of the variety of lines on a smooth cubic 4-fold. For Hilb^2 and the variety of

Spherical subcategories in representation theory

We introduce a new invariant for triangulated categories: the poset of spherical subcategories ordered by inclusion. This yields several numerical invariants, like the cardinality and the height of

On the derived category of the Hilbert scheme of points on an Enriques surface

We use semi-orthogonal decompositions to construct autoequivalences of Hilbert schemes of points on Enriques surfaces and of Calabi–Yau varieties which cover them. While doing this, we show that the


This paper studies derived categories of coherent sheaves on varieties that are obtained by projectivization of vector bundles and by monoidal transformations. Conditions for the existence of
