Let A be a finite dimensional algebra over an algebraically closed field k. Assume A is basic connected with n pairwise non-isomorphic simplemodules. We consider the Coxeter transformation ?A as the automorphism of the Grothendieck group K0(A) induced by the Auslander-Reiten translation ? in the derived category Der(modA) of the module category modA of finite dimensional left A-modules. We say that A is an algebra of cyclotomic type if the characteristic polynomial ?A of ?A is a product of

There are many examples of algebras of cyclotomic type in the representaton theory literature: hereditary algebras of Dynkin and extended Dynkin types, canonical algebras, some supercanonical and extended canonical algebras. Among other results, we show that: (a) algebras satisfying the fractional Calabi-Yau property have periodic Coxeter transformation and are, therefore, of cyclotomic type, and (b) algebras whose homological form hA is non-negative are of cyclotomic type. For an algebra A of cyclotomic type we describe the shape of the Auslander-Reiten components of Der(modA). 1.
