Reinier Schmiermann (Utrecht) - Counting modules over a noncommutative resolution of C^4/(Z/2)
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.
