On Fourier-Mukai type functors

Rizzardo, Alice

In this thesis we study functors between bounded derived categories of sheaves and how they can be expressed in a geometric way, namely whether they are isomorphic to a Fourier-Mukai transform. Specifically, we describe the behavior of a functor between derived categories of smooth projective varieties when restricted to the derived category of the generic point of the second variety, when this last variety is a curve, a point or a rational surface. We also compute in general some sheaves that play the role of the cohomology sheaves of the kernel of a Fourier-Mukai transform and are then able to exhibit a class of functors that are neither faithful nor full, that are isomorphic to a Fourier-Mukai transform.
