## Abstract

We investigate complete exceptional sequences E = (E_{1},…, E_{n}) in the derived category D^{b} ∧ of finite-dimensional modules over a canonical algebra, equivalently in the derived category D^{b} (X double struck) of coherent sheaves on a weighted projective line, and the associated Cartan matrices C(E) = (〈[E_{i}], [E_{j}]〉). As a consequence of the transitivity of the braid group action on such sequences we show that a given Cartan matrix has at most finitely many realizations by an exceptional sequence E, up to an automorphism and a multi-translation (E_{1},…, E_{n})→ (E_{1} [i_{1}],…, E_{n} [i_{n}]) of D^{b} ∧. Moreover, we determine a bound on the number of such realizations. Our results imply that a derived canonical algebra A is determined by its Cartan matrix up to isomorphism if and only if the Hochschild cohomology of A vanishes in nonzero degree, a condition satisfied if A is representation-finite.
