Dimensions of triangulated categories

  • Raphaël Rouquier (a1)

We define a dimension for a triangulated category. We prove a representability Theorem for a class of functors on finite dimensional triangulated categories. We study the dimension of the bounded derived category of an algebra or a scheme and we show in particular that the bounded derived category of coherent sheaves over a variety has a finite dimension.
