# A boson-fermion correspondence in cohomological Donaldson-Thomas theory

@inproceedings{Davison2021ABC, title={A boson-fermion correspondence in cohomological Donaldson-Thomas theory}, author={Ben Davison}, year={2021} }

We introduce and study a fermionization procedure for the cohomological Hall algebra HΠQ of representations of a preprojective algebra, that selectively switches the cohomological parity of the BPS Lie algebra from even to odd. We do so by determining the cohomological Donaldson–Thomas invariants of central extensions of preprojective algebras studied in the work of Etingof and Rains, via deformed dimensional reduction.
