5d Gauge Theories, SCFTs and Dualities

Polygon Seminar Sakura Schafer-Nameki (Oxford)

15:00 City U.
room B104

I will discuss recent developments in constructions of 5d N=1 supersymmetric gauge theories and their UV fixed points, which are strongly-coupled SCFTs. The lectures will start with some background on 5d gauge theories, their Coulomb branch and effective action, as well as their constructions in M-theory on non-compact Calabi-Yau threefolds. In the second lecture I will discuss some new developments of various groups in the past year.
