### Multiplication formula in Grassmannian cluster categories

Grassmannian cluster categories are studied in A categorification of Grassmannian cluster algebras and Cluster categories from Grassmannians and root combinatorics. The category $CM(B_{k,n})$ of Cohen-...

### Some interesting and elementary topics with connections to the representation theory?

I'm going to give a talk to talented high school seniors (for nearly 1.25-1.75 hours, maybe a little bit longer). They know some abstract algebra (groups, rings, modules...), linear algebra (...

### Choice of a ground ring for cluster algebras

In order to define cluster algebra one needs to define its ground ring. In most cases, we take a group $P$ (often called a coefficient group) which is taken to be an abelian multiplicative group . ...

### Cluster algebras and tropical points

Recently, I have been looking at some articles about bases for cluster algebras and came across the idea of tropical points. I should highlight here that unfortunately I have no background on ...

### Determining if a rational function has a subtraction-free expression

This question was first asked by Mehtaab Sawhney in Alex Postnikov's combinatorics class. Given a rational function $F=P(x_1,...,x_n)/Q(x_1,...,x_n)$ with (say) integer coefficients, it is often of ...

### Non-rigid indecomposable summands of simple-minded collections in bounded derived category of hereditary algebras

Let $\Lambda$ be a hereditary algebra over an algebraically closed field $k$. Let $S$ be one of the indecomposable summands of one simple-minded collection in $D^b(\Lambda)$. Is it true that $S$ is ...

### Why do finitely many cluster variables imply finitely many y-variables?

Suppose we have a seed $(x,y,B)$ where $B$ is a skew-symmetrizable matrix, $x = \{x_1,\ldots,x_n\}$ and y is an n-tuple of elements in $Trop\{x_{n+1},\ldots,x_m\}$. If there are finitely many cluster ...

### (b,c) rank 2 cluster algebras

Let $x$ and $y$ be variables. Consider the following recurrence: \begin{equation} u_{n}:= \begin{cases} \displaystyle{\frac{1+u_{n-1}^b}{u_{n-2}}} & if\ n\ \text{is even},\\ &\\ \displaystyle{\...

### Automorphisms of weighted quiver

I am reading this paper strongly primitiv species with potentials I : mutations. In page 6, they give the definition of weighted quiver: a weighted quiver is a pair $(Q,d)$, where $Q$ is a loop-...

### What is the status of a problem about cluster categories?

Let $H$ be a hereditary algebra of Dynkin type. There is a cluster category $\mathcal{C}_H$ defined by Aslak Bakke Buan, Robert Marsh, Markus Reineke, Idun Reiten, and Gordana Todorov in Tilting ...

### Question about the mutation of a cluster seed associated to any word of the braid semigroup

Let $G$ be a semisimple Lie group with the set of positive simple roots $\prod$. Let $\prod^{-}$ be the set of negative simple roots and let $\mathfrak{M}$ be the semigroup freely generated by $\prod$ ...

### Questions about cluster $\mathcal{X}$-varieties and amalgamation

I am trying to learn the amalgamation of two cluster seeds and I am reading the paper https://arxiv.org/pdf/math/0508408.pdf written by V.V. Fock and A. B. Goncharov. I am at a loss for the Lemma 2....

### Decidability and Cluster algebras

Recall the definition of a cluster algebra, which can be seen as a (possibly infinite) graph, where each vertex is a tuple of a quiver and Laurent expressions at some of the vertices of the quiver. ...

### A question about the quivers with potentials

Let $Q=(Q_0,Q_1,h,t)$ be a quiver consisted of a pair of finite sets $Q_0$(vectors),and $Q_1$ (arrows) supplied with two maps $h : Q_1 → Q_0$ (head) and $t : Q_1 → Q_0$ (tail ). This definition allows ...
