Abstract: Following up on the construction of Bridgeland stability condition on $\mathbb {P}^3$ by Macrì, we develop techniques to study concrete wall crossing behavior for the first time on a threefold. In some cases, such as complete intersections of two hypersurfaces of the same degree or twisted cubics, we show that there are two chambers in the stability manifold where the moduli space is given by a smooth projective irreducible variety, respectively, the Hilbert scheme. In the case of twisted cubics, we compute all walls and moduli spaces on a path between those two chambers. This allows us to give a new proof of the global structure of the main component, originally due to Ellingsrud, Piene, and Strømme. In between slope stability and Bridgeland stability there is the notion of tilt stability that is defined similarly to Bridgeland stability on surfaces. Beyond just $\mathbb {P}^3$, we develop tools to use computations in tilt stability to compute wall crossings in Bridgeland stability.
