On derived categories of arithmetic toric varieties
We begin a systematic investigation of derived categories of smooth projective toric varieties defined over an arbitrary base field. We show that, in many cases, toric varieties admit full exceptional collections, making it possible to give concrete descriptions of their derived categories. Examples include all toric surfaces, all toric Fano 3-folds, some toric Fano 4-folds, the generalized del Pezzo varieties of Voskresenskiĭ and Klyachko, and toric varieties associated to Weyl fans of type . Our main technical tool is a completely general Galois descent result for exceptional collections of objects on (possibly nontoric) varieties over nonclosed fields.
