A Theory of Generalized Donaldson-Thomas Invariants (Memoirs by Dominic Joyce, Yinan Song

By Dominic Joyce, Yinan Song

This e-book stories generalized Donaldson-Thomas invariants $\bar{DT}{}^\alpha(\tau)$. they're rational numbers which 'count' either $\tau$-stable and $\tau$-semistable coherent sheaves with Chern personality $\alpha$ on $X$; strictly $\tau$-semistable sheaves needs to be counted with complex rational weights. The $\bar{DT}{}^\alpha(\tau)$ are outlined for all periods $\alpha$, and are equivalent to $DT^\alpha(\tau)$ whilst it truly is outlined. they're unchanged below deformations of $X$, and rework by way of a wall-crossing formulation lower than swap of balance situation $\tau$. To turn out all this, the authors research the neighborhood constitution of the moduli stack $\mathfrak M$ of coherent sheaves on $X$. They convey that an atlas for $\mathfrak M$ could be written in the neighborhood as $\mathrm{Crit}(f)$ for $f:U\to{\mathbb C}$ holomorphic and $U$ delicate, and use this to infer identities at the Behrend functionality $\nu_\mathfrak M$. They compute the invariants $\bar{DT}{}^\alpha(\tau)$ in examples, and make a conjecture approximately their integrality homes. in addition they expand the idea to abelian different types $\mathrm{mod}$-$\mathbb{C}Q\backslash I$ of representations of a quiver $Q$ with family members $I$ coming from a superpotential $W$ on $Q$.

Hodge theory and complex algebraic geometry 1

This can be a smooth creation to Kaehlerian geometry and Hodge constitution. insurance starts off with variables, advanced manifolds, holomorphic vector bundles, sheaves and cohomology concept (with the latter being handled in a extra theoretical means than is common in geometry). The e-book culminates with the Hodge decomposition theorem.

Logarithmic Forms and Diophantine Geometry

There's now a lot interaction among stories on logarithmic varieties and deep features of mathematics algebraic geometry. New gentle has been shed, for example, at the recognized conjectures of Tate and Shafarevich in relation to abelian forms and the linked celebrated discoveries of Faltings constructing the Mordell conjecture.

Geometry of Higher Dimensional Algebraic Varieties (Oberwolfach Seminars)

The topic of this booklet is the category thought and geometry of upper dimensional kinds: life and geometry of rational curves through attribute p-methods, manifolds with adverse Kodaira measurement, vanishing theorems, conception of extremal rays (Mori theory), and minimum types. The ebook supplies a state of the art intro- duction to a tough and never with ease obtainable topic which has passed through huge, immense improvement within the final 20 years.

A Survey of Knot Theory

Knot conception is a quickly constructing box of analysis with many functions, not just for arithmetic. the current quantity, written through a well known expert, supplies an entire survey of this idea from its very beginnings to ultra-modern newest examine effects. An fundamental e-book for everybody keen on knot idea.

Suppose (T, ) is a totally ordered set, and τ : C(A) → T a map. We call (τ, T, ) a stability condition on A if whenever α, β, γ ∈ C(A) with β = α + γ then either τ (α) < τ (β) < τ (γ), or τ (α) > τ (β) > τ (γ), or τ (α) = τ (β) = τ (γ).

Let K be an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero, and X be a K-scheme, algebraic K-space, or Artin K-stack, locally of finite type. Then there is a well-defined Behrend function νX , a Z-valued locally constructible function on X, which is characterized uniquely by the property that if W is a finite type K-scheme and ϕ : W → X is a 1-morphism of Artin stacks that is smooth of relative dimension n then ϕ∗ (νX ) = (−1)n νW in CF(W ). Proof. As Artin K-stacks include K-schemes and algebraic K-spaces, it is enough to do the Artin stack case.
