### Crepant resolution of isolated fourfold singularity

I stumbled upon this isolated singularity of a Calabi-Yau fourfold:
\begin{equation}
x_1x_2+x_3x_4+x_5^2=0
\end{equation}
as a hypersurface in $\mathbb{C}^5$.
Clearly, I can resolve this by a simple ...

### Do fixed point sets in equivariant crepant resolutions have the same cohomology? How about for the specific case of Nakajima quiver varieties?

A crepant resolution $f:Y\to X$ is a resolution of singularities with $f^*(K_X)=K_Y$. Crepant resolutions do not always exist, and when they exist they may not be unique. However, different crepant ...
