Recursion relations for conformal blocks
A bstractIn the context of conformal field theories in general space-time dimension, we find all the possible singularities of the conformal blocks as functions of the scaling dimension Δ of the
3d partition function as overlap of wavefunctions
We compute the partition function on S3 of 3d $$ \mathcal{N} = 4 $$ theories which arise as the low-energy limit of 4d $$ \mathcal{N} = 4 $$ super Yang-Mills theory on a segment or on a junction, and
New aspects of Heterotic–F-theory duality
Abstract In order to understand both up-type and down-type Yukawa couplings, F-theory is a better framework than the perturbative Type IIB string theory. The duality between the Heterotic and
Gauge Theory And Integrability, III
We study two-dimensional integrable field theories from the viewpoint of the four-dimensional Chern-Simons-type gauge theory introduced recently. The integrable field theories are realized as
4d Index to 3d Index and 2d TQFT
We compute the 4d superconformal index for N = 1, 2 gauge theories on S × L(p, 1), where L(p, 1) is a lens space. We find that the 4d N = 1, 2 index on S × L(p, 1) reduces to a 3d N = 2, 4 index on S
Gauge Theory and Integrability, II
Starting with a four-dimensional gauge theory approach to rational, elliptic, and trigonometric solutions of the Yang-Baxter equation, we determine the corresponding quantum group deformations to all
Mechanical unfolding of single filamin A (ABP‐280) molecules detected by atomic force microscopy
The refolding of the unfolded chain of filamin A occurred when the force applied to the protein was reduced to near zero, indicating that its unfolding is reversible.
Crystal Melting and Toric Calabi-Yau Manifolds
We construct a statistical model of crystal melting to count BPS bound states of D0 and D2 branes on a single D6 brane wrapping an arbitrary toric Calabi-Yau threefold. The three-dimensional
Single giant unilamellar vesicle method reveals effect of antimicrobial peptide magainin 2 on membrane permeability.
This report investigates the interaction of magainin 2 with single giant unilamellar vesicles (GUVs) and proposes the two-state transition model for the pore formation, which indicates that binding of magainein 2 to the external monolayer of the GUV increases its membrane area, thereby raising its surface pressure.
Three-dimensional gauge theories with supersymmetry enhancement
We conjecture infrared emergent $\mathcal{N}=4$ supersymmetry for a class of three-dimensional $\mathcal{N}=2$ $U(1)$ gauge theories coupled with a single chiral multiplet. One example is the case
