Given a quiver we consider two algebras: its path algebra and its preprojective algebra. If the quiver is Dynkin, i.e., its underlying graph is a simply laced Dynkin diagram, then both algebras have nice properties: the derived category of the path algebra is fractionally Calabi-Yau, and the preprojective algebra is Frobenius with a Nakayama automorphism of finite order. One can show that, if stated carefully, these properties are equivalent. I will give an introduction to the concepts above and, time permitting, will describe some of the ingredients of the proof of this equivalence.
