We classify three fold isolated quotient Gorenstein singularity $C^3/G$. These singularities are rigid, i.e. there is no non-trivial deformation, and we conjecture that they define 4d $\mathcal{N}=2$ SCFTs which do not have a Coulomb branch.

Coulomb and Higgs branches from canonical singularities. Part 0

Abstract Five- and four-dimensional superconformal field theories with eight supercharges arise from canonical threefold singularities in M-theory and Type IIB string theory, respectively. We study

On Upper Bounds in Dimension Gaps of CFT's

We consider CFT’s arising from branes probing singularities of internal manifolds. We focus on holographic models with internal space including arbtirary Sasaki-Einstein manifolds coming from CY as

Geometric classification of 4d N=2$$ \mathcal{N}=2 $$ SCFTs

A bstractThe classification of 4d N=2$$ \mathcal{N}=2 $$ SCFTs boils down to the classification of conical special geometries with closed Reeb orbits (CSG). Under mild assumptions, one shows that the

Mixed Hodge structure and $\mathcal{N}=2$ Coulomb branch solution

The Coulomb branch of four dimensional N = 2 theories can be solved by finding a Seiberg–Witten (SW) geometry and a SW differential. While lots of SW geometries are found, the extraction of low

IIB flux non-commutativity and the global structure of field theories

Abstract We discuss the origin of the choice of global structure for six dimensional (2, 0) theories and their compactifications in terms of their realization from IIB string theory on ALE spaces.

On the moduli spaces of 4d $\mathcal{N} = 3$ SCFTs I: triple special K\"ahler structure

We initiate a systematic analysis of moduli spaces of vacua of four dimensional $\mathcal{N}=3$ SCFTs. Our analysis is based on the one hand on the properties of $\mathcal{N}=3$ chiral rings ---

A slow review of the AGT correspondence

Starting with a gentle approach to the AGT correspondence from its 6d origin, these notes provide a wide survey of the literature on numerous extensions of the correspondence. This is the writeup of

Snowmass White Paper on SCFTs

Superconformal field theories (SCFTs) occupy a central role in the study of many aspects of quantum field theory. In this white paper for the Snowmass process we give a brief overview of aspects of

This is the first of a series of papers in which we systematically use singularity theory to study four dimensional N = 2 superconformal field theories. Our main focus in this paper is to identify

The versal deformation of an isolated toric Gorenstein singularity

Given a lattice polytope Q ⊆ ℝn, we define an affine scheme that reflects the possibilities of splitting Q into a Minkowski sum. Denoting by Y the toric Gorenstein singularity induced by Q, we
