Areas of Interest

I  work in Homological Algebra and Representation Theory, but am interested in other things as well: Singularity Theory, Local Algebra, Abstract Homotopy Theory, Deformation Theory, Noncommutative Geometry, Algebraic Number Theory, Differential Equations, Integrable Systems, and Special Functions.

I organize:

Representation Theory and Related Topics Seminar

Maurice Auslander Distinguished Lectures and International Conference

Instructional Workshops

Recent Papers and Preprints

Stable projective homotopy theory of modules, tails, and Koszul duality  (with R. Martinez Villa), 29 pp, to appear in Communications in Algebra. (Version 7.11, Sept. 12, 2009)

1-Torsion of finite modules over semiperfect rings, Journal of Algebra, 324 (2010), 2595-2607.

On Auslander - Buchsbaum - type formulas, 8 pp.

Stability and duality (with I. Reiten), (in preparation).

Deformation Theory (table of contents) (with A.Vlassov), 5 pp. (Book in preparation)

Linear monoidal structures on module categories, (with A. Vlassov), 15 pp. (In progress)

The representation rings of k[X], (with A. Vlassov) 4 pp. This is our elementary solution to the Clebsch-Gordan problem for the monoidal structures on finite-dimensional modules over the polynomials in one letter. It was obtained in the summer of 1997 and is included in our paper on linear monoidal structures mentioned above. Because we are getting a steady stream of requests for that proof and because the paper just keeps growing, we decided to extract the proof from the paper and place it as a preprint. This version has been slightly edited to make it self-contained.

Absolute, relative, and Tate cohomology of modules of finite Gorenstein dimension (with L. Avramov), Proc. London Math. Soc. 85 (2002), 393-440.
