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 quotient. This generalizes classical descriptions of the category of coherent sheaves on projective space and categorifies several results in the theory of Hamiltonian group actions on projective manifolds. This perspective generalizes and provides new insight into examples of derived equivalences…

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

Baric structures on triangulated categories and coherent sheaves

We introduce the notion of a "baric structure" on a triangulated category, as an abstraction of S. Morel's weight truncation formalism for mixed l-adic sheaves. We study these structures on the
