Grothendieck-Teichmller Groups, Deformation and Operads

Theory of Donaldson-Thomas invariants, developed recently in our joint work with Kontsevich, produces collections of integers (more generally, elements of some rings of motives) which in many examples ``count” semistable objects in 3-dimensional Calabi-Yau categories. The collections depend on parameters and can jump when parameters cross codimension one walls (``wall-crossing phenomenon”). I am going to discuss a way to produce DT-invariants from the deformation theory of the ``wheel” of projective lines in a formal toric Poisson variety. This approach is related to so distant topics as Hitchin integrable systems, nonabelian Hodge theory and cluster algebras.
