A holomorphic Casson invariant for CalabiYau 3folds, and bundles on K3 fibrations

We briefly review the formal picture in which a CalabiYau nfold is the complex analogue of an oriented real nmanifold, and a Fano with a fixed smooth anticanonical divisor is the analogue of a manifold with boundary, motivating a holomorphic Casson invariant counting bundles on a CalabiYau 3fold. We develop the deformation theory necessary to obtain the virtual moduli cycles of [LT], [BF] in moduli spaces of stable sheaves whose higher obstruction groups vanish. This gives, for instance, virtual moduli cycles in Hilbert schemes of curves in P 3, and Donaldson – and GromovWitten – like invariants of Fano 3folds. It also allows us to define the holomorphic Casson invariant of a CalabiYau 3fold X, prove it is deformation invariant, and compute it explicitly in some examples. Then we calculate moduli spaces of sheaves on a general K3 fibration X, enabling us to compute the invariant for some ranks and Chern classes, and equate it to GromovWitten invariants of the “Mukaidual” 3fold for others. As an example the invariant is shown to distinguish Gross’ diffeomorphic 3folds. Finally the Mukaidual 3fold is shown to be CalabiYau and its cohomology is related to that of X.

We describe a formalism based on quantization of quadratic hamiltonians and symplectic actions of loop groups which provides a convenient home for most of known general results and conjectures about GromovWitten invariants of compact symplectic manifolds and, more generally, Frobenius structures at higher genus. We state several results illustrating the formalism and its use. In particular, we establish Virasoro constraints for semisimple Frobenius structures and outline a proof of the Virasoro conjecture for Gromov – Witten invariants of complex projective spaces and other Fano toric manifolds. Details will be published elsewhere.

Abstract. For a nonsingular projective 3fold X, we define integer invariants virtually enumerating pairs (C,D) where C ⊂ X is an embedded curve and D ⊂ C is a divisor. A virtual class is constructed on the associated moduli space by viewing a pair as an object in the derived category of X. The resulting invariants are conjecturally equivalent, after universal transformations, to both the GromovWitten and DT theories of X. For CalabiYau 3folds, the latter equivalence should be viewed as a wallcrossing formula in the derived category. Several calculations of the new invariants are carried out. In the Fano case, the local contributions of nonsingular embedded curves are found. In the local toric CalabiYau case, a completely new form of the topological vertex is described. The virtual enumeration of pairs is closely related to the geometry underlying the BPS state counts of Gopakumar and Vafa. We
