We revisit the singular IIB supergravity solution describing M-fractional 3-branes on the conifold [hep-th/0002159]. Its 5-form flux decreases, which we explain by showing that the relevant = 1 SUSY… Expand

We consider two dimensional supergravity coupled to $\hat c=1$ matter. This system can also be interpreted as noncritical type 0 string theory in a two dimensional target space. After reviewing and… Expand

For 3-dimensional field theories with $ \mathcal{N} = 2 $ supersymmetry the Euclidean path integrals on the three-sphere can be calculated using the method of localization; they reduce to certain… Expand
