Abstract: On the one hand, there is a 3d Calabi Yau category with stability conditions associated to a quiver without loops or 2-cycles with generic potential, and one can study its Donaldson-Thomas invariants. On the other hand, such a quiver also defines a cluster Poisson variety, which is constructed by gluing a collection of algebraic tori in a certain way governed by combinatorics. In certain cases, the Donaldson-Thomas invariants of the former category can be captured by an automorphism on the latter space. In this talk, I will recall the cluster Poisson structure on the moduli space of configurations of points in a projective space, and state my result on constructing the corresponding cluster Donaldson-Thomas transformation, and give a new proof of Zamolodchikov’s periodicity conjecture in the $A_m\boxtimes A_n$ cases as an application. If time permits, I will also talk about the generalization of this result to double Bruhat cells.
