(COW seminar) The derived category of moduli spaces of vector bundles on curves

9 June 2015
M S Narasimhan

Let X be a smooth projective curve (of genus greater than or equal to 2) over C and M the moduli space of vector bundles over X, of rank 2 and with fixed determinant of degree 1.Then the Fourier-Mukai functor from the bounded derived category of coherent sheaves on X to that of M, given by the normalised Poincare bundle, is fully faithful, except (possibly) for hyperelliptic curves of genus 3,4,and 5

 This result is proved by establishing precise vanishing theorems for a family of vector bundles on the moduli space M.

 Results on the deformation  and inversion of Picard bundles (already known) follow from the full faithfulness of the F-M functor
