Title: Exact results in N=2 gauge theories
Date: Tue, Oct 18, 2016, 13:15 - 14:30
Place: Seminar Room A
Abstract: I will review some localisation techniques in N=2 gauge theories and their applications to the study of pre-potentials, partition functions, Wilson loops and chiral correlators. Using localization we will derive exact formulas for a class of observables in N=2* and N=4 theories and test the results against the predictions of S-duality and AGT correspondence.
