Two basic questions on derived categories

Let $\mathcal{A}, \mathcal{B}$ be two abelian categories with sufficiently many injective objects (in my case these are categories of sheaves of vector spaces on a manifold). Let $f_*\colon ...

flat descent for perverse sheaves

Let $E \in D^{b}_{c}(X,\overline{\mathbb{Q}}_{l})$ where $X$ is a $k$ scheme of finite type for a field $k$. Let $Y\rightarrow X$ a finite flat surjective morphism such that $f^{*}E$ is perverse and ...

Definition of derived category of a stack

In their book, Bernstein an Lunts define the equivariant derived category in several ways. One can be expressed as follows: Let $X$ be a say complex variety with an action by an algebraic group $G$. ...

Are constructible derived categories invariant up to weak homotopy equivalence?

Let $X$ and $Y$ be two topological spaces and $R$ be commutative ring. Let $D_c^b(X, R)$ and $D_c^b(Y,R)$ be their respective bounded derived categories of constructible sheaves of $R$-modules. I ...

Showing morphism of sheaves is zero

I work in derived category $D^b(X)$ of constructible sheaves on a reasonable space $X$. Let $j\colon U\to X$ be an open inclusion and $i\colon Y\to X$ the closed complement. Let $M,N\in D^b(X)$ and ...

For an l-adic sheaf (F_n), why is the complex F_n of finite Tor dimension?

Let $X$ be a variety and let $\mathcal{F}=(\mathcal{F}_n)_{n\geq 0}$ be a (constructible) $\ell$-adic sheaf on $X$. Let $K_n$ be the object in the derived category $D(X,\mathbf{Z}/\ell^{n+1})$ of ...

Closed monoidal structure on the derived category of sheaves

Given a topological space X, i'd like to find Der X - the derived category of sheaves of abelian groups on X - to be a closed monoidal category. Hom should be cohomological and the internal-hom should ...

What does a projective resolution mean geometrically?

For R a commutative ring and M an R-module, we can always find a projective resolution of M which replaces M by a sequence of projective R-modules. But as R is commutative, we can consider the affine ...
