Welcome to this seminar held by Oliver Leigh (Uppsala University) with the title "The Blowup Formula for the Instanton Part of Vafa-Witten Invariants on Projective Surfaces".
In this talk I will present a blow-up formula for the generating series of virtual χ_y-genera for moduli spaces of sheaves on projective surfaces. The formula is related to a conjectured formula for topological χ_y-genera of Göttsche, and is a refinement of a formula of Vafa-Witten relating to S-duality. I will also discuss the proof of the formula, which is based on the blow-up algorithm of Nakajima-Yoshioka for framed sheaves onℙ^2.
This talk is based on joint work with Nikolas Kuhn and Yuuji Tanaka.
