Derived categories and their applications in commutative algebra

The aim of this course is to introduce modern homological algebra in the language of derived categories, and to use this language to study commutative rings. We will explain how classical notions in commutative algebra such as Gorenstein and Cohen–Macaulay rings have a very easy description using the derived category. Following Grothendieck work on the subject, we will study dualizing complexes, local cohomology, and aim to prove Grothendieck's local duality theorem.
