General instanton counting and 5d SCFT
A bstractInstanton partition functions of 5d N=1$$ \mathcal{N}=1 $$ gauge theories are Witten indices for the ADHM gauged quantum mechanics with (0, 4) SUSY. We derive the integral contour
N=5,6 Superconformal Chern-Simons Theories and M2-branes on Orbifolds
We explore further our recent generalization of the = 4 superconformal Chern-Simons theories of Gaiotto and Witten. We find and construct explicitly theories of enhanced = 5 or 6 supersymmetry,
Towards M2-brane theories for generic toric singularities
We construct several examples of (2+1) dimensional = 2 supersymmetric Chern-Simons theories, whose moduli space is given by non-compact toric Calabi-Yau four-folds, which are not derivable from any
N=4 Superconformal Chern-Simons Theories with Hyper and Twisted Hyper Multiplets
We extend the = 4 superconformal Chern-Simons theories of Gaiotto and Witten to those with additional twisted hyper-multiplets. The new theories are generically linear quiver gauge theories with the
Elliptic genus of E-strings
A bstractWe study a family of 2d N=0,4$$ \mathcal{N}=\left(0,\ 4\right) $$ gauge theories which describes at low energy the dynamics of E-strings, the M2-branes suspended between a pair of M5 and M9
Dualities for 3d theories with tensor matter
A bstractWe study dualities for $ \mathcal{N} = {2} $ 3d Chern-Simons matter theories with gauge groups U/Sp/O, matter in the two-index tensor representations (adjoint/symmetric/anti- symmetric) in
Strings on orientifolds
Dimers and orientifolds
We introduce new techniques based on brane tilings to investigate D3-branes probing orientifolds of toric Calabi-Yau singularities. With these new tools, one can write down many orientifold models
