Cyril Closset (Zoom) - 5d SCFTs and BPS quivers

When: Thursday, April 16, 2020, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Where: Zoom, Zoom

Speaker: Cyril Closset

I will explore aspects of the Coulomb-branch physics of five-dimensional superconformal field theories (SCFT).

More precisely, I will consider the 5d SCFT on a circle, and describe the general structure of the Coulomb-branch BPS states as encoded in a "5d BPS quiver," which can be computed from standard string-theory geometric-engineering techniques. The interplay between 4d and 5d BPS quivers will play a central role in our story.
