# Hall algebras and Donaldson-Thomas invariants

@article{Bridgeland2016HallAA, title={Hall algebras and Donaldson-Thomas invariants}, author={Tom Bridgeland}, journal={arXiv: Algebraic Geometry}, year={2016} }

This is a survey article on Hall algebras and their applications to the study of motivic invariants of moduli spaces of coherent sheaves on Calabi-Yau threefolds. It is a write-up of my talks at the 2015 Salt Lake City AMS Summer Research Institute and will appear in the Proceedings. The ideas presented here are mostly due to Joyce, Kontsevich, Reineke, Soibelman and Toda.

J un 2 02 0 An algebraic approach to Harder

- 2020

In this article we study chains of torsion classes in an abelian category A. We prove that chains of torsion classes induce a Harder-Narasimhan filtrations for every non-zero object M in A and we… Expand

On the wall-crossing formula for quadratic differentials

- Mathematics, Physics
- 2020

We prove an analytic version of the Kontsevich-Soibelman wall-crossing formula describing how the number of finite-length trajectories of a quadratic differential jumps as the differential is varied.… Expand

These are introductory notes on Donaldson–Thomas counts of curves in threefolds and their connections with other branches of mathematics and mathematical physics. They are based on my 2018 Takagi… Expand

SEMINAR ON SCATTERING DIAGRAMS AND MOTIVIC HALL ALGEBRAS

- 2020

Scattering diagrams are collections of codimension one cones (walls) in a vector space together with attached functions constructed from combinatorial data. They were introduced by Kontsevich and… Expand

Riemann–Hilbert problems from Donaldson–Thomas theory

- Mathematics, Physics
- 2016

We study a class of Riemann–Hilbert problems arising naturally in Donaldson–Thomas theory. In certain special cases we show that these problems have unique solutions which can be written explicitly… Expand

From frieze patterns to cluster categories

- Mathematics
- 2020

Motivated by Conway and Coxeter's combinatorial results concerning frieze patterns, we sketch an introduction to the theory of cluster algebras and cluster categories for acyclic quivers. The goal is… Expand

On higher torsion classes

- Mathematics
- 2021

Building on the embedding of an n-abelian category M into an abelian category A as an n-cluster-tilting subcategory of A, in this paper we relate the n-torsion classes of M with the torsion classes… Expand

Exact structures and degeneration of Hall algebras

- Mathematics
- 2020

We study degenerations of the Hall algebras of exact categories induced by degree functions on the set of isomorphism classes of indecomposable objects. We prove that each such degeneration of the… Expand

An introduction to motivic Hall algebras

We give an introduction to Joyce's construction of the motivic Hall algebra of coherent sheaves on a variety M. When M is a Calabi-Yau threefold we define a semi-classical integration map from a… Expand

Donaldson-Thomas Invariants and Flops

We prove a comparison formula for the Donaldson-Thomas curve-counting invariants of two smooth and projective Calabi-Yau threefolds related by a flop. By results of Bridgeland any two such varieties… Expand

Hall algebras and curve-counting invariants

We use Joyce's theory of motivic Hall algebras to prove that reduced Donaldson-Thomas curve-counting invariants on Calabi-Yau threefolds coincide with stable pair invariants, and that the generating… Expand

This paper contains some applications of Fourier-Mukai techniques to the birational geometry of threefolds. In particular, we prove that birational Calabi-Yau threefolds have equivalent derived… Expand

We prove that Donaldson-Thomas type invariants are equal to weighted Euler characteristics of their moduli spaces. In particular, such invariants depend only on the scheme structure of the moduli… Expand
