We introduce and study a fermionization procedure for the cohomological Hall algebra HΠQ of representations of a preprojective algebra, that selectively switches the cohomological parity of the BPS Lie algebra from even to odd. We do so by determining the cohomological Donaldson–Thomas invariants of central extensions of preprojective algebras studied in the work of Etingof and Rains, via deformed dimensional reduction. 
Koszul algebras and Donaldson-Thomas invariants
For a given symmetric quiver Q, we define a supercommutative quadratic algebra AQ whose Poincaré series is related to the motivic generating function of Q by a simple change of variables. The Koszul


The critical CoHA of a quiver with potential
Pursuing the similarity between the Kontsevich--Soibelman construction of the cohomological Hall algebra of BPS states and Lusztig's construction of canonical bases for quantum enveloping algebras,
Motivic Donaldson-Thomas invariants of the conifold and the refined topological vertex
Abstract We compute the motivic Donaldson–Thomas theory of the resolved conifold, in all chambers of the space of stability conditions of the corresponding quiver. The answer is a product formula
Cohomological Hall algebra, exponential Hodge structures and motivic Donaldson-Thomas invariants
We define a new type of Hall algebras associated e.g. with quivers with polynomial potentials. The main difference with the conventional definition is that we use cohomology of the stack of
Cohomological Donaldson–Thomas theory of a quiver with potential and quantum enveloping algebras
This paper concerns the cohomological aspects of Donaldson–Thomas theory for Jacobi algebras and the associated cohomological Hall algebra, introduced by Kontsevich and Soibelman. We prove the
The integrality conjecture and the cohomology of preprojective stacks
By importing the compactly supported cohomology of various stacks of representations of the preprojective algebra $\Pi_Q$, for $Q$ an arbitrary quiver, into the theory of cohomological
On central extensions of preprojective algebras
We show that the Hilbert polynomial P(t) of the trace space A/[A,A] of the centrally extended preprojective algebra A of an ADE quiver is equal to the Hilbert series of the maximal nilpotent
Cohomological Hall algebras, semicanonical bases and Donaldson-Thomas invariants for 2-dimensional Calabi-Yau categories (with an appendix by Ben Davison)
We discuss semicanonical bases from the point of view of Cohomological Hall algebras via the “dimensional reduction” from 3-dimensional Calabi–Yau categories to 2-dimensional ones. Also, we discuss
Donaldson–Thomas invariants versus intersection cohomology of quiver moduli
Abstract The main result of this paper is the statement that the Hodge theoretic Donaldson–Thomas invariant for a quiver with zero potential and a generic stability condition agrees with the
On two cohomological Hall algebras
Abstract We compare two cohomological Hall algebras (CoHA). The first one is the preprojective CoHA introduced in [19] associated with each quiver Q, and each algebraic oriented cohomology theory A.
Quiver Varieties and Yangians
We prove a conjecture of Nakajima (for type A it was announced by Ginzburg and Vasserot) giving a geometric realization, via quiver varieties, of the Yangian of type ADE (and more in general of the
