It is conjectured in arXiv:1211.1986 that 3d ellipsoid partition functions and superconformal indices of 3d N=2 supersymmetric theories are factorized into products of two identical building blocks (holomorphic blocks). I will briefly explain the factorization by giving examples.
I will introduce three dimensional N=2 supersymmetric Chern-Simons-Matter theories with specified boundary conditions and evaluate the partition functions in terms of localization method. I will also discuss the relation between the partition function of our model and three dimensional holomorphic blocks.
