Title:  Derived categories and rational points for a class of toric Fano varieties

Abstract:   I will discuss forthcoming work with Matthew Ballard on using the derived category of coherent sheaves to detect the existence of rational points on a particular family of arithmetic toric Fano varieties. More precisely, I will explain how we show that a member of this family of varieties is rational if and only if its bounded derived category of coherent sheaves admits a full ├ętale exceptional collection.
