Crepant resolutions & Donaldson-Thomas invariants


The crepant resolution conjecture is a conjecture in enumerative geometry originating from string theory. It relates the Donaldson-Thomas invariants of a three-dimensional Calabi-Yau orbifold to those of a particular crepant resolution of its coarse moduli space. In this talk, we will explain the statement of this conjecture and look at a number of techniques that could help one prove it.
