Résumé: τ-tilting theory is an elegant – but technical – subject in representation theory of associative algebras, with motivations from cluster algebras. It was introduced by Adachi-Iyama-Reiten, in 2014. However, thanks to the recent result of Demonet-Iyama-Jasso, one can fully phrase the concept of τ-tilting finiteness in terms of linear algebra. I adopt this elementary approach to share some new results on τ-tilting finiteness of several families of algebras with rich combinatorics.

I begin with a review of two fundamental conjectures by Brauer and Thrall. After some historical remarks on those, I present a gentle introduction to τ-tilting finiteness, which allows me to state a conjecture of similar nature that relies on my recent work on τ-tilting theory. I will share my main strategy, as well as my new results on some cases.

I will not assume any prior knowledge of representation theory of algebras!
