Graded algebras, projective spectra and blow-ups in derived algebraic geometry

Moduli and Algebraic Cycles

25 November 15:30 - 16:30

Jeroen Hekking - KTH Royal Institute of Technology

The goal of this talk is to define the derived blow-up of a closed immersion of derived schemes, and to mention a few key properties of this construction. After reviewing derived schemes, we will first introduce the infinity category of graded, simplicial rings as a free completion along sifted colimits, and explain how one takes the derived projective spectrum of such a gadget. We then introduce the derived extended Rees algebra via Weil restrictions, which is the key ingredient for derived blow-ups.
