Projective representations Suppose Q is a quiver with no oriented cycles. Show that the representations P(i) introduced in class are all projective, and specify them for the example quiver shown. Friday, 2/3
Projective covers For the example quiver in the previous problem, specify the projective covers of the simple modules S(i) and compute the kernels. Are the kernels projective modules? Make a conjecture about the kernels of the projective covers of the simple modules over a path algebra of a quiver with no oriented cycles! Friday, 2/17
