The group of autoequivalences of the derived category of an algebraic variety is important to understand for various reasons, for example in the context of mirror symmetry. However, it is understood only in very few examples. I will describe recent joint work with Tom Bridgeland, in which we determine this group for projective K3 surfaces of Picard rank one. The proof is based on a geometric argument: we prove that the space of stability conditions for such K3 surfaces is connected and simply-connected.
