Moduli Spaces of Sheaves on \PP^1 \times \PP^1

In this talk, after reviewing the basic properties of moduli spaces of sheaves on P^1 x P^1, I will show that they are $\mathbb{Q}$-factorial Mori Dream Spaces and explain a method for computing their effective cones. My method is based on the generalized Beilinson spectral sequence, Bridgeland stability and moduli spaces of Kronecker modules.
