Donaldson-Thomas invariant is expressed as the weighted Euler characteristic of the so-called Behrend (constructible) function. In (2) Behrend introduced a Donaldson-Thomas type invariant for a mor- phism. Motivated by this invariant, we extend the motivic Hirzebruch class to naive Donaldson-Thomas type analogues. We also discuss a categorification of the Donaldson-Thomas type invariant for a morphism from a bivariant-theoretic viewpoint, and we finally pose some related questions for further… 
On the Euler characteristic of a relative hypersurface
We derive a general formula for the Euler characteristic of a fibration of projective hypersurfaces in terms of invariants of an arbitrary base variety. When the general fiber is an elliptic curve,
On a projective bundle formula
For a vector bundle $\mathscr{E}\to X$ with $X$ a smooth variety over a field we prove a formula for the proper pushforward $\pi_*:A^*\mathbb{P}(\mathscr{E})\to A^*X$, where


Donaldson-Thomas type invariants via microlocal geometry
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
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
Stability structures, motivic Donaldson-Thomas invariants and cluster transformations
We define new invariants of 3d Calabi-Yau categories endowed with a stability structure. Intuitively, they count the number of semistable objects with fixed class in the K-theory of the category
Motivic Donaldson-Thomas invariants: Summary of results
This is a short summary of main results of our paper arXiv:0811.2435 where the concept of motivic Donaldson-Thomas invariant was introduced. It also contains a discussion of some open questions from
A generalized Verdier-type Riemann-Roch theorem for Chern-Schwartz-MacPherson classes
We give a general formula for the defect appearing in the Verdier-type Riemann-Roch formula for Chern-Schwartz-MacPherson classes in the case of a regular embedding. Our proof of this formula uses
Generalized Donaldson-Thomas invariants
This is a survey of the book arXiv:0810.5645 with Yinan Song. Let X be a Calabi-Yau 3-fold over C. The Donaldson-Thomas invariants of X are integers DT^a(t) which count stable sheaves with Chern
Characteristic Classes of Hypersurfaces and Characteristic Cycles
We give a new formula for the Chern-Schwartz-MacPherson class of a hypersurface in a nonsigular compact complex analytic variety. In particular this formula generalizes our previous result on the
In this paper we study some new theories of characteristic homology classes of singular complex algebraic (or compactifiable analytic) spaces. We introduce a motivic Chern class transformationmCy:
