### Algebra Seminar

# Thick subcategories of the bounded derived category

### Carlson

###### Friday 27th April, 12:05--12:55pm, Carslaw 175

###### Speaker:

Jon F. Carlson (UGA)

###### Title:

Thick subcategories of the bounded derived category

###### Abstract:

This is joint work with Srikanth Iyengar. It is all about
using methods from commutative algebra to study group
representations. A new proof of the classification for tensor
ideal thick subcategories of the bounded derived category,
and the stable category, of modular representations of a finite
group is obtained. The arguments apply more generally to
yield a classification of thick subcategories of the bounded
derived category of an artinian complete intersection ring.
One of the salient features of this work is that it takes
no recourse to infinite constructions, unlike the previous
proofs of these results.
