The Existence of an Abelian Variety over the Algebraic Numbers isogenous to no JacobianOct 11 2010We prove the existence of an Abelian variety $A$ of dimension $g$ over $\Qa$ which is not isogenous to any Jacobian, subject to the necessary condition $g>3$. Recently, C.Chai and F.Oort gave such a proof assuming the Andr\'e-Oort conjecture. We modify ... More
Derived Algebraic Geometry II: Noncommutative AlgebraFeb 11 2007Sep 19 2007In this paper, we present an infinity-categorical version of the theory of monoidal categories. We show that the infinity category of spectra admits an essentially unique monoidal structure (such that the tensor product preserves colimits in each variable), ... More
