Abstract: In general, the topology of the moduli space of semistable sheaves on an algebraic variety relies heavily on the choice of the Euler characteristic of the sheaves. We show a striking phenomenon that, for the moduli of 1-dimensional semistable sheaves on a toric del Pezzo surface (e.g. P^2) or the moduli of semistable Higgs bundles with respect to a divisor of degree > 2g-2 on a curve, the intersection cohomology (together with the perverse and the Hodge filtrations) of the moduli space is independent of the choice of the Euler characteristic.

This confirms a conjecture of Bousseau for P^2, and proves a conjecture of Toda in the case of certain local Calabi-Yau 3-folds. In the proof, a generalized version of Ngô's support theorem plays a crucial role. Based on joint with Davesh Maulik.
