The course is based upon MA3203 Ring theory and MA3204 Homological algebra. The contents of the course may vary, but it will have a kernel containing: algebras given by a quiver, representations of quivers, almost split sequences, Brauer-Thrall I, classification of hereditary algebras of finite representation type, functor categories and tilting theory for artin algebras. Additional topics will be discussed based on who is taking the course.
