Motivated by S-duality modularity conjectures in string theory, we define new invariants counting a restricted class of two-dimensional torsion sheaves, enumerating pairs $$Z\subset H$$Z⊂H in a Calabi–Yau threefold $$X$$X. Here $$H$$H is a member of a sufficiently positive linear system and $$Z$$Z is a one-dimensional subscheme of it. The associated sheaf is the ideal sheaf of $$Z\subset H$$Z⊂H, pushed forward to $$X$$X and considered as a certain Joyce–Song pair in the derived category of $$X… 
Localized Donaldson-Thomas theory of surfaces
Let $S$ be a projective simply connected complex surface and $\mathcal{L}$ be a line bundle on $S$. We study the moduli space of stable compactly supported 2-dimensional sheaves on the total spaces
Donaldson-Thomas Invariants of 2-Dimensional sheaves inside threefolds and modular forms
Motivated by the S-duality conjecture, we study the Donaldson-Thomas invariants of the 2 dimensional Gieseker stable sheaves on a threefold. These sheaves are supported on the fibers of a nonsingular
Flops and the S-duality conjecture
We prove the transformation formula of Donaldson-Thomas (DT) invariants counting two dimensional torsion sheaves on Calabi-Yau 3-folds under flops. The error term is described by the Dedekind eta
Let S be a projective simply connected complex surface and L be a line bundle on S. We study the moduli space of stable compactly supported 2-dimensional sheaves on the total spaces of L. The moduli
Generalized Donaldson-Thomas Invariants of 2-Dimensional sheaves on local P^2
Let X be the total space of the canonical bundle of P^2. We study the generalized Donaldson-Thomas invariants, defined in the work of Joyce-Song, of the moduli spaces of the 2-dimensional Gieseker
Donaldson-Thomas invariants, linear systems and punctual Hilbert schemes
We study certain DT invariants arising from stable coherent sheaves in a nonsingular projective threefold supported on the members of a linear system of a fixed line bundle. When the canonical bundle
Intersection numbers on the relative Hilbert schemes of points on surfaces
We study certain top intersection products on the Hilbert scheme of points on a nonsingular surface relative to an effective smooth divisor. We find a formula relating these numbers to the
Moduli and Invariants
This workshop focused on the newest of results in the theory of moduli spaces and applications to enumerative invariants in algebraic geometry. The workshop showed new advances in computations of

This article provides a summary of arXiv:1701.08899 and arXiv:1701.08902 where the authors studied the enumerative geometry of nested Hilbert schemes of points and curves on algebraic surfaces and
Scaling Black Holes and Modularity
Scaling black holes are solutions of supergravity with multiple black hole singularities, which can be adiabatically connected to a single center black hole solution. We develop techniques to


A holomorphic Casson invariant for Calabi-Yau 3-folds, and bundles on K3 fibrations
We briefly review the formal picture in which a Calabi-Yau n-fold is the complex analogue of an oriented real n-manifold, and a Fano with a fixed smooth anticanonical divisor is the analogue of a
A theory of generalized Donaldson–Thomas invariants
This book studies generalized Donaldson-Thomas invariants $\bar{DT}{}^\alpha(\tau)$. They are rational numbers which 'count' both $\tau$-stable and $\tau$-semistable coherent sheaves with Chern
Curve counting via stable pairs in the derived category
For a nonsingular projective 3-fold X, we define integer invariants virtually enumerating pairs (C,D) where C⊂X is an embedded curve and D⊂C is a divisor. A virtual class is constructed on the
Bogomolov–Gieseker-type inequality and counting invariants
We study a conjectural relationship among Donaldson-Thomas type invariants on Calabi-Yau 3-folds counting torsion sheaves supported on ample divisors, ideal sheaves of curves and
Gromov–Witten theory and Donaldson–Thomas theory, I
We conjecture an equivalence between the Gromov–Witten theory of 3-folds and the holomorphic Chern–Simons theory of Donaldson and Thomas. For Calabi–Yau 3-folds, the equivalence is defined by the
Wall-crossing of D4-branes using flow trees
The moduli dependence of D4-branes on a Calabi-Yau manifold is studied using attractor flow trees, in the large volume limit of the Kahler cone. One of the moduli dependent existence criteria of flow
Deformation-obstruction theory for complexes via Atiyah and Kodaira–Spencer classes
We give a universal approach to the deformation-obstruction theory of objects of the derived category of coherent sheaves over a smooth projective family. We recover and generalise the obstruction
Split states, entropy enigmas, holes and halos
A bstractWe investigate degeneracies of BPS states of D-branes on compact Calabi-Yau manifolds. We develop a factorization formula for BPS indices using attractor flow trees associated to
Examples of M5-Brane Elliptic Genera
We determine the modified elliptic genus of an M5-brane wrapped on various one modulus Calabi-Yau spaces, using modular invariance together with some known Gopakumar-Vafa invariants of small degrees.
The M5-Brane Elliptic Genus: Modularity and BPS States
The modified elliptic genus for an M5-brane wrapped on a four-cycle of a Calabi-Yau threefold encodes the degeneracies of an infinite set of BPS states in four dimensions. By holomorphy and modular
