Fractional Calabi-Yau Categories from Landau-Ginzburg Models

Kelly, Tyler Lee ; Favero, D


We give criteria for the existence of a Serre functor on the derived category of a gauged Landau-Ginzburg model. This is used to provide a general theorem on the existence of an admissible (fractional) Calabi-Yau subcategory of a gauged Landau-Ginzburg model and a geometric context for crepant categorical resolutions. We explicitly describe our framework in the toric setting. As a consequence, we generalize several theorems and examples of Orlov and Kuznetsov, ending with new examples of semi-orthogonal decompositions containing (fractional) Calabi-Yau categories.
