Central charges of 𝒩 = 2 superconformal field theories in four dimensions

- A. Shapere, Yuji Tachikawa
- PhysicsJournal of High Energy Physics
- 14 April 2008

We present a general method for computing the central charges a and c of N=2 superconformal field theories corresponding to singular points in the moduli space of N=2 gauge theories. Our method… Expand

Geometric Phases in Physics

- F. Wilczek, A. Shapere
- Physics
- 1989

During the last few years, considerable interest has been focused on the phase that waves accumulate when the equations governing the waves vary slowly. The recent flurry of activity was set off by a… Expand

Geometry of self-propulsion at low Reynolds number

- A. Shapere, F. Wilczek
- PhysicsJournal of Fluid Mechanics
- 1 January 1989

The problem of swimming at low Reynolds number is formulated in terms of a gauge field on the space of shapes. Effective methods for computing this field, by solving a linear boundary-value problem,… Expand

BPS Structure of Argyres-Douglas Superconformal Theories

- A. Shapere, C. Vafa
- Mathematics, Physics
- 22 October 1999

We study geometric engineering of Argyres–Douglas superconformal theories realized by type IIB strings propagating in singular Calabi–Yau threefolds. We use this construction to count the degeneracy… Expand

Efficiencies of self-propulsion at low Reynolds number

- A. Shapere, F. Wilczek
- PhysicsJournal of Fluid Mechanics
- 1 January 1989

We study the effeciencies of swimming motions due to small deformations of spherical and cylindrical bodies at low Reynolds number. A notion of efficiency is defined and used to determine optimal… Expand

LIMITATIONS ON THE STATISTICAL DESCRIPTION OF BLACK HOLES

- J. Preskill, P. Schwarz, A. Shapere, S. Trivedi, F. Wilczek
- Physics
- 30 August 1991

We argue that the description of a block hole as a statistical (thermal) object must break down as the extreme (zero-temperature) limit is a approached, due to uncontrollable thermodynamic… Expand

- N. Evans, Clifford V. Johnson, A. Shapere
- Physics, Mathematics
- 28 March 1997

The vacuum structure of N = 2 super-QCD with classical gauge groups
