Basic aspects of n-homological algebra

Abstract: n-homological algebra was initiated by Iyama
via his notion of n-cluster tilting subcategories.
It was turned into an abstract theory by the definition
of n-abelian categories (Jasso) and (n+2)-angulated categories
The talk explains some elementary aspects of these notions.
We also consider the special case of an n-representation finite algebra.
Such an algebra gives rise to an n-abelian
category which can be "derived" to an (n+2)-angulated category.
This case is particularly nice because it is
analogous to the classic relationship between
the module category and the derived category of a
hereditary algebra of finite representation type.
