Cycles in Quivers and Path Algebras

I cannot find anything giving the algebra of a quiver with a single cycle on three or more vertices. In other words if your quiver consists of n vertices (n>2), and e_i is connected to e_{i+1} (taking ...

How can classifying irreducible representations be a “wild” problem?

Let $q$ be a prime power and $U_n(\mathbb{F}_q)$ be the group of unitriangular $n\times n$-matrices. I've read and heard in several places (see e.g. this mathoverflow question) that classifying ...

Do morphisms of finitely-decomposable Quiver representations map indecomposables nicely?

Consider two quivers $Q$ and $Q'$ of type $A_n$, laid out horizontally like so: Given representations of $Q$ and $Q'$, Gabriel's theorem guarantees the existence of finitely many indecomposables ...

Homological dimension of completed path algebras.

Let A = c[Q]/I be a finite dimensional quotient of a path algebra over a quiver Q, with I being the ideal of relations. Is it true that the I-adic completion of A has finite homological dimension?

The Fukaya category of a simple singularity (reference request)

I have heard that for an ADE singularity $f$, $ D^b\mathrm{Fuk}(f) \simeq D^b(\mathrm{Rep}\\ Q)$ where $Q$ is the corresponding Dynkin quiver. (As one would hope, if $\mathrm{Fuk}$ is some kind of ...

Do fixed point sets in equivariant crepant resolutions have the same cohomology? How about for the specific case of Nakajima quiver varieties?

A crepant resolution $f:Y\to X$ is a resolution of singularities with $f^*(K_X)=K_Y$. Crepant resolutions do not always exist, and when they exist they may not be unique. However, different crepant ...

Quiver on tensor product

Let $Q=(Q_{0},Q_{1},h,t)$ be a finite quiver where $Q_{0}$ are the vertices, $Q_{1}$ the arrows and we have two maps $h: Q_{1} \rightarrow Q_{0}$ (head) and $t: Q_{1} \rightarrow Q_{0}$ (tail). Fix a ...

An algorithm for constructing the AR-quiver of a path algebra corresponding to a change in the orientation.

Considering the path algebra of the quiver $\mathbb{A}_n$, it is well known its Auslander-Reiten quiver with the canonical orientation of $\mathbb{A}_n$, that is, with all the arrows from, say, left ...

Are the extra vertices in Nakajima's doubling of a quiver related to Langlands duality?

To define a Nakajima quiver variety associated to a quiver $Q = (Q_0,Q_1)$ (vertices and arrows), one first doubles it to $Q^\heartsuit$ by attaching an extra vertex to every old vertex in $Q_0$. Then ...
