Geometric realizations of quiver algebras

  • Dmitri O. OrlovEmail author


We construct strong exceptional collections of vector bundles on smooth projective varieties that have a prescribed endomorphism algebra. We prove that the construction problem always has a solution. We consider some applications to noncommutative projective planes and to the quiver connected with the three-point Ising function.
