A note on the degree-diameter problem for arc-transitive graphsDec 22 2013We give two lower bounds on the largest order of an arc-transitive graph of diameter two and a given degree.

A remark on Rickard complexesMay 21 2013In this paper, we characterize a Rickard complex, which induces a Rickard equivalence between the block algebras of a block $b$ and its Brauer correspondent and whose vertices have the same order as defect groups of the block $b$. The homology of such ... More

A note on abelian quotient categoriesApr 09 2019Let C be a triangulated category with a Serre functor S and X a non-zero contravariantly finite rigid subcategory of C. Then X is cluster tilting if and only if the quotient category C/X is abelian and S(X)=X[2]. As an application, this result generalizes ... More
