### Local systems as a Serre subcategory of the category of perverse sheaves

Let $X$ be an algebraic variety. Let $Perv(X)$ be the (abelian) category of perverse sheaves on $X$ and let $Loc^{ft}(X)$ be the subcategory of local systems with finitely-generated stalks.
It is ...

### When semi-simple subcategories "extend" to hearts of t-structures?

Let $A$ be a semi-simple abelian subcategory of a triangulated category $C$ that "generates" $A$ (that is, $C$ equals its own smallest triangulated subcategory that is closed under direct ...

### Heart of a bounded $t$-structure on the derived category of coherent sheaves

Let $X$ be an elliptic curve and $D(X)$ the bounded derived category of $Coh(X)$, coherent sheaves on $X$. If $(D^{\leq 0}, D^{>0})$ is a bounded $t$-structure, then can we already say that the ...

### Semi-stable bundles as a heart of a t-structure

Given an algebraic curve, the category of semi-stable vector bundles of fixed slope forms an abelian category see here page 2. This is surprising as the vector bundles themselves are not an abelian ...

### Which derived categories of coherent sheaves are equivalent (or "$t$-related") to derived categories of rings?

As far as I understand, it was Beilinson who proved that the bounded derived category of coherent sheaves $D^b(\mathbb{P}^n)$ is equivalent to the bounded derived category of a certain (non-...

[Notes I],
[Notes II],
[HA, Definition 1.2.1.11)],
[BBD, Définition 1.3.1]),
one often writes $\mathcal{C}^\heartsuit$ for the heart of a ...

### Monoidality of truncation of spectra

If $X$ is a spectrum, we have a notion of its connective part $X_{\le 0}$ and the corresponding notion of truncation $X_{[i:j]} = X_{\le j}/X_{\le i-1}$, where $X_{\le j}$ is deduced from $X_{\le 0}$ ...

I am away from Torsion theory in abelian category for some while. So it might be a stupid question.
The definition of a torsion pair in the category of modules is as follows:
