Representation theory of quivers and its combinatorics
In this talk I will give a brief introduction to representation theory of quivers, going through the notions of the category of representations of quivers, corresponding derived category and some of its orbit categories, such as cluster categories. I will discuss some important questions in this area and give examples to show how combinatorics play a useful role in tackling these representation-theoretic problems.
