Consider the singularity C^4/(Z/2), where Z/2 acts as the matrix diag(-1,-1,-1,-1). This singularity is special, in that it does not admit a crepant resolution. However, it does admit a so-called noncommutative crepant resolution, given by a Calabi-Yau 4 quiver. The moduli space of representations of this quiver turns out to share a lot of similarities with moduli spaces of sheaves over Calabi-Yau fourfolds, and it turns out that we can reuse techniques from studying moduli of sheaves to define and compute invariants of this moduli space of representations. In this talk, I will explain how these invariants can be defined, and give conjectures about the forms of these invariants. This talk is based on joint work with Raf Bocklandt.

Specialization of (stable) birational types is an important tool when studying (stable) rationality in families. A crucial ingredient is to cook up one parameter degenerations such that the limit has certain combinatorial and geometric properties. Nicaise-Ottem studied these questions for hypersurfaces in algebraic tori, and used tropical geometry to construct degenerations that would have been hard (impossible) to construct geometrically. Even after these are constructed one must carefully study the limit in order to apply specialization techniques, this involves both combinatorics and questions about variation of stable birational types. I will talk about the specialization technique in the setup of Nicaise-Ottem, explain some natural questions that appear through the combinatorics, and give some positive results in this direction.
