Title:  Algebraic geometry of K3 surfaces via derived categories (Special time, 3:10-4)

Abstract:  Concrete geometric problems can sometimes be dealt with by means of the homological algebra encoded by the derived category of coherent sheaves. I will discuss a few such problems for K3 surfaces, explain how derived categories enter, and make some general remarks on the role of derived categories in the classification of algebraic varieties.
