Graded quiver varieties and derived categories


Nakajima's quiver varieties are important geometric objects in representation theory that can be used to give geometric constructions of quantum groups. Very recently,  graded quiver varieties also found application to monoidal categorification of cluster algebras. Nakajima's original construction uses geometric invariant theory. In my talk, I will give an alternative representation theoretical definition of graded quiver varieties. I will show that the geometry of graded quiver varieties is governed by the derived category of the quiver. This is joint work with Berhard Keller.
