Let X be a Gorenstein normal 3-fold satisfying (ELF) with local rings which are at worst isolated hypersurface (e.g. terminal) singularities. By using the singular derived category Dsg(X) and its idempotent completion View the MathML source, we give necessary and sufficient categorical conditions for X to be Q-factorial and complete locally Q-factorial respectively. We then relate this information to maximal modification algebras (= MMAs), introduced in [20], by showing that if an algebra Λ is derived equivalent to X as above, then X is Q-factorial if and only if Λ is an MMA. Thus all rings derived equivalent to Q-factorial terminalizations in dimension three are MMAs. As an application, we extend some of the algebraic results in [6] and [14] using geometric arguments.
