Derived categories and rationality of conic bundles

Bolognesi, M (Rennes 1)
Thursday 30 June 2011, 14:00-14:30

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


In this talk I present a joint work with Marcello Bernardara where we show that a standard conic bundle on a rational minimal surface is rational if and only if its derived category admits a semiothogonal decomposition via derived categories of smooth projective curves and exceptional objects. In particular, even if the surface is not minimal, such a decomposition allows to reconstruct the intermediate Jacobian as the direct sum of the Jacobian of those curves.
