"A visual introduction to tilting"

The representation theory of a quiver (i.e., an oriented graph) can sometimes be understood by... another quiver! Such pictures of complex concepts (such as categories of modules or derived categories) are a source of intuition for many phenomena, among which lie the tools for classification and comparison of representations: tilting theory. The aim of this talk is to give an heuristic view (example driven) of some ideas in this area of Algebra.
