Electric-Magnetic Duality And The Geometric Langlands Program
The geometric Langlands program can be described in a natural way by compactifying on a Riemann surface C a twisted version of N=4 super Yang-Mills theory in four dimensions. The key ingredients areExpand

Exact results for Wilson loops in superconformal Chern-Simons theories with matter
We use localization techniques to compute the expectation values of supersymmetric Wilson loops in Chern-Simons theories with matter. We find the path-integral reduces to a non-Gaussian matrix model.Expand

Generalized global symmetries
A bstractA q-form global symmetry is a global symmetry for which the charged operators are of space-time dimension q; e.g. Wilson lines, surface defects, etc., and the charged excitations have qExpand

Wilson-'t Hooft operators in four-dimensional gauge theories and S-duality
We study operators in four-dimensional gauge theories which are localized on a straight line, create electric and magnetic flux, and in the UV limit break the conformal invariance in the minimalExpand

Duality of the Fermionic 2d Black Hole and N = 2 Liouville Theory as Mirror Symmetry
We prove the equivalence of the SL(2, R)/U(1) Kazama-Suzuki model, which is a fermionic generalization of the 2d Black Hole, and N = 2 Liouville theory. We show that this duality is an example ofExpand

Monopole Operators and Mirror Symmetry in Three Dimensions
We study vortex-creating, or monopole, operators in 3d CFTs which are the infrared limit of N = 2 and N = 4 supersymmetric QEDs in three dimensions. Using large-Nf expansion, we construct monopoleExpand

On Mirror Symmetry in Three Dimensional Abelian Gauge Theories
We present an identity relating the partition function of N = 4 supersymmetric QED to that of its dual under mirror symmetry. The identity is a generalized Fourier transform. Many known properties ofExpand

Nonperturbative tests of three-dimensional dualities
We test several conjectural dualities between strongly coupled superconformal field theories in three dimensions by computing their exact partition functions on a three sphere as a function ofExpand

Fermionic symmetry protected topological phases and cobordisms
A bstractIt has been proposed recently that interacting Symmetry Protected Topological Phases can be classified using cobordism theory. We test this proposal in the case of Fermionic SPT phases withExpand

Theta, time reversal and temperature
A bstractSU(N ) gauge theory is time reversal invariant at θ = 0 and θ = π. We show that at θ = π there is a discrete ’t Hooft anomaly involving time reversal and the center symmetry. This anomalyExpand
