Unipotent morphisms

  title={Unipotent morphisms},
  author={Daniel Bragg and Jack Hall and Siddharth Mathur},
We introduce the theory of unipotent morphisms of algebraic stacks. We give two applications: (1) a unipotent analogue of Gabber’s Theorem for torsion Gm-gerbes and (2) smooth Deligne–Mumford stacks with quasi-projective coarse spaces satisfy the resolution property in positive characteristic. Our main tool is a descent result for flags, which we prove using results of Schäppi. 


Approximation of sheaves on algebraic stacks
Raynaud--Gruson characterized flat and pure morphisms between affine schemes in terms of projective modules. We give a similar characterization for non-affine morphisms. As an application, we show
On Coverings of Deligne–Mumford Stacks and Surjectivity of the Brauer Map
The paper proves a result on the existence of finite flat scheme covers of Deligne–Mumford stacks. This result is used to prove that a large class of smooth Deligne–Mumford stacks with affine moduli
We develop a theory of unbounded derived categories of quasicoherent sheaves on algebraic stacks. In particular, we show that these categories are compactly generated by perfect complexes for stacks
The resolution property for schemes and stacks
Abstract We prove the equivalence of two fundamental properties of algebraic stacks: being a quotient stack in a strong sense, and the resolution property, which says that every coherent sheaf is a
The resolution property via Azumaya algebras
Abstract Using formal-local methods, we prove that a separated and normal tame Artin surface has the resolution property. By proving that normal tame Artin stacks can be rigidified, we ultimately
Tensor generators on schemes and stacks
We show that an algebraic stack with affine stabilizer groups satisfies the resolution property if and only if it is a quotient of a quasi-affine scheme by the action of the general linear group, or

Abstract We prove that on separated algebraic surfaces every coherent sheaf is a quotient of a locally free sheaf. This class contains many schemes that are neither normal, reduced, quasiprojective
A Lazard-Like Theorem for Quasi-Coherent Sheaves
We study filtrations of quasi–coherent sheaves. We prove a version of Kaplansky Theorem for quasi–coherent sheaves, by using Drinfeld’s notion of almost projective module and the Hill Lemma. We also
On unipotent quotients and some A^1-contractible smooth schemes
We study quotients of quasi-affine schemes by unipotent groups over fields of characteristic 0. To do this, we introduce a notion of stability which allows us to characterize exactly when a principal
Algebraic Groups and Compact Generation of their Derived Categories of Representations
Let k be a field. We characterize the group schemes G over k, not necessarily affine, such that D-qc (B(k)G) is compactly generated. We also describe the algebraic stacks that have finite
