Any abelian group can be reconstructed from its rationalized and p-completed parts. This object-wise decomposition can be lifted to several categorical decompositions of D(Z) -- the derived category of abelian groups. In fact, given any (suitably well-behaved) commutative ring R, a similar process can be performed where D(R) is decomposed using the data of its Zariski prime spectrum.

Derived categories of rings form a class of examples of

*tensor-triangulated categories*. In this talk I will discuss ways of splitting tt-categories by shining them through a*prism*. These prisms are constructed using a suitable generalization of the Zariski prime spectrum of a ring, and the splitting is achieved by using compatible notions of localization and completion.The goal is to use this machinery to better understand the category of rational-valued equivariant cohomology theories for compact Lie groups, and eventually to aid in building algebraic models for such.
