Rational singularities and almost split sequences. (English) Zbl 0594.20030
Let \(G\subseteq SL(2,{\mathbb{C}})\) be a finite group and let V be a two- dimensional representation of G. Then V gives an action of G on \(S={\mathbb{C}}[[ X,Y]]\) as a group of \({\mathbb{C}}\)- algebra automorphisms. It is proved that if V is faithful having no pseudoreflections then the category \(R_ S\) of reflexive modules over the invariant \({\mathbb{C}}\)-algebra \(S^ G\) has almost split sequences and they can be derived from a fundamental exact sequence. Moreover, the Auslander-Reiten quiver of \(R_ S\) is the McKay graph of (G,V) and it is isomorphic to the desingularization graph of the associated singularity. Some of the results above remain valid in more general situations.
