Flops and about
Stratified flops show up in the birational geometry of symplectic varieties such as moduli spaces of sheaves. Varieties related by such flops are often derived equivalent (meaning that there is an equivalence between their derived categories of coherent sheaves). After recalling a bit about the geometry of flops I will discuss a general method for constructing such equivalences and illustrate with some examples and applications.
