### Finite dimensional algebras over $\mathbb{Q}$

It is known that a finite dimensional basic algebra over an algebraically closed field is isomorphic to the path algebra of a finite quiver modulo an admissible ideal. Question 1: Is the same true ...

### Meaning of an algebra having “sufficiently many primitive idempotents”?

This is a phrase Ringel uses a few times in his writing, and I'm not sure exactly what he means by it. The context is that we have a quiver $Q$ with path algebra $\mathbf{k}Q$. If $Q$ is not a finite ...

### What's an illustrative example of a tame algebra?

A finite-dimensional associative $\mathbf{k}$-algebra $\mathbf{k}Q/I$ is of tame representation type if for each dimension vector $d\geq 0$, with the exception of maybe finitely many dimension vectors ...

### radical and socle of the path algebra

Let $Q$ be an infinite quiver without oriented cycle. Is it true that the radical of $KQ$ is generated by all the arrows? What can we say about its socle? Thank you!

### Graded quivers vs “ordinary” quivers and derived categories

I have heard the "slogan" that graded quivers are (derived) equivalent to ordinary quivers (with this "result" being attributed to Keller) and am looking for a precise statement and a reference. By a ...

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 ...

### The explicit indecomposable representations of (any) Euclidean quiver of type E

It is known that for any quiver $Q$ that is an orientation of $\tilde{\mathbb{E}}_8$, the hereditary path algebra $KQ$ ($K$ being an algebraically closed field) is tame (but not finite). That is, in ...
