Derived Categories of Moduli Spaces of Semistable Pairs over Curves

Potashnik, Natasha

The context of this thesis is derived categories in algebraic geometry and geo- metric quotients. Specifically, we prove the embedding of the derived category of a smooth curve of genus greater than one into the derived category of the moduli space of semistable pairs over the curve. We also describe closed cover conditions under which the composition of a pullback and a pushforward induces a fully faithful functor. To prove our main result, we give an exposition of how to think of general Geometric Invariant Theory quotients as quotients by the multiplicative group.
