Title: Exact results for 5D supersymmetric theories on toric manifolds
Date: Tue, Mar 15, 2016, 13:15 - 14:30
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: I will review the localization calculation for 5D supersymmetric gauge theories on the toric Sasaki-Einstein manifold. I will explain briefly how the answer is written in terms of toric data. The factorisation properties of the answer will be discussed and the relation to Nekrasov's partition function will be explained. At the end I will discuss the modular properties of the partition function for the abelian example. If time allows I will make some comments on 6D and 7D calculations.
