Stability Conditions and Homological Projective Duality

University of Michigan in Ann Arbor

April 7-8, 2018

The goal of this Mini-Workshop is to learn about the newest developments in the study of derived categories of algebraic varieties through two mini-courses taught by two leading experts in the subject. The target audience are graduate students and postdocs, but all others are welcome as well.


  • Jack Huizenga (Penn State University): Stability conditions and moduli of vector bundles
  • Alex Perry (Columbia University): Homological Projective Duality


Please register via an informal email to by March 10. Our aim is to provide accommodations for external participants, but we would encourage all participants to find their own funding for transportation.

Preparatory Lectures

There will be a two preparatory lectures on Friday, April 6, starting at 4 pm, with the goal of acquainting local graduate students with the basic material that is needed in order to understand what is going on in the mini-courses (e.g. on derived categories). Other participants are welcome to join as well. More details will follow soon.
