### Compact generation for modular representations

Are the derived categories of modular representations of algebraic groups compactly generated? (e.g. consider SL_2 in characteristic 2). Note modular reps of finite groups are compactly generated (by ...

### Categories which are not compactly generated

Do you know natural examples of triangulated categories (or [presentable] stable $\infty$-categories) which are not compactly generated? (ideally they'd be defined algebraically, but curious to hear ...

### Splitting in triangulated categories

Using the axioms for a triangulated category, is it possible to prove the following:
$A\stackrel{0}{\to}B\to A\oplus B\to$ is a distinguished triangle.
From the first axiom, the map ...

### Classifying triangulated structures on a graded category

I know of several results to the effect that two triangulated categories are equivalent categories (usually one coming from algebra and one coming from topology). However, it's never been clear to me ...

### distinguished triangles and cohomology

Start with A an abelian category and form the derived category D(A).
Take a triangle (not necessarily distinguished) and take it's cohomology. We obtain a long sequence (not necessarily exact). If the ...

### Sources for exact triangles in triangulated categories.

The other day I came across the statement that in the triangulated category $\mathfrak{KK}$ (of C*-algebras with KK-groups as morphism sets) "there are many other sources of exact triangles besides ...

### Localization(s) of Categories

I've been trying to read a paper by Krause and came across a strange (to me, of course) notion of localization. After looking around for a long time, and then finding this on his site, I see that ...

### Is there a constructive description of type in the p-local stable homotopy category?

The title pretty much sums it up - but let me give a little bit of background first.
In the p-local stable homotopy category (basically one localizes away the torsion spectra which are not p-torsion) ...
