We give a sufficient condition for an Extfinite triangulated category to be saturated. Saturatedness means that every contravariant cohomological functor of finite type to vector spaces is representable. The condition consists in existence of a strong generator. We prove that the bounded derived categories of coherent sheaves on smooth proper commutative and noncommutative varieties have strong generators, hence saturated. In contrast the similar category for a smooth compact analytic surface with no curves is not saturated.

A stable model category is a setting for homotopy theory where the suspension functor is invertible. The prototypical examples are the category of spectra in the sense of stable homotopy theory and the category of unbounded chain complexes of modules over a ring. In this paper we develop methods for deciding when two stable model categories represent ‘the same homotopy theory’. We show that stable model categories with a single compact generator are equivalent to modules over a ring spectrum. More generally stable model categories with a set of generators are characterized as modules over a ‘ring spectrum with several objects’, i.e., as spectrum valued diagram categories. We also prove a Morita theorem which shows how equivalences between module categories over ring spectra can be realized by smashing with a pair of bimodules. Finally, we characterize stable model categories which represent the derived category of a ring. This is a slight generalization of Rickard’s work on derived equivalent rings. We also include a proof of the model category equivalence of modules over the EilenbergMac Lane spectrum HR and (unbounded) chain complexes of Rmodules for a ring R.

Compact objects are as necessary to this subject as air to breathe. R.W. Thomason to A. Neeman, [N3] Abstract. We study natural algebraic operations on categories arising in algebraic geometry and its homotopytheoretic generalization, derived algebraic geometry. We work with a broad class of derived stacks which we call stacks with air. The class of stacks with air includes in particular all quasicompact, separated derived schemes and (in characteristic zero) all quotients of quasiprojective or smooth derived schemes by affine algebraic groups, and is closed under derived fiber products. We show that the (enriched) derived categories of quasicoherent sheaves on stacks with air behave well under algebraic and geometric operations. Namely, we identify the derived category of a fiber product with the tensor product of the derived categories of the factors. We also identify functors between derived categories of sheaves with integral transforms (providing a generalization of a theorem of Toën [To1] for ordinary schemes over a ring). As a first application, for a stack Y with air, we calculate the Drinfeld center (or synonymously,

Abstract. We explain a fundamental additivity theorem for Euler characteristics and generalized trace maps in triangulated categories. The proof depends on a refined axiomatization of symmetric monoidal categories with a compatible triangulation. The refinement consists of several new axioms relating products and distinguished triangles. The axioms hold in the examples and shed light on generalized homology and cohomology theories.

Abstract. We study the category of matrix factorizations associated to the germ of an isolated hypersurface singularity. We exhibit the stabilized residue field as a compact generator. This implies a quasiequivalence between the category of matrix factorizations and the dg derived category of an explicitly computable dg algebra. Building on this quasiequivalence we establish a derived Morita theory which identifies the functors between matrix factorization categories as integral transforms. This enables us to calculate the Hochschild chain and cochain complexes of matrix factorization categories. Finally, we give interpretations of the results of this work in terms of noncommutative geometry modelled on dg categories. Contents
