The identities for elliptic gamma functions discovered by A. Varchenko and one of us are generalized to an infinite set of identities for elliptic gamma functions associated to pairs of planes in 3-dimensional space. The language of stacks and gerbes gives a natural framework for a systematic description of these identities and their domain of validity. A triptic curve is the quotient of the complex plane by a subgroup of rank three (it is a stack). Our identities can be summarized by saying…

Gerbes and the Holomorphic Brauer Group of Complex Tori

The purpose of this paper is to develop the theory of holomorphic gerbes on complex tori in a manner analogous to the classical theory for line bundles. In contrast to past studies on this subject,

Differentiable Stacks and Equivariant Cohomology

In this thesis, we are interested in the study of cohomology of differentiable stacks and we want to provide a good notion of equivariant cohomology for differentiable stacks. For this we describe in

Modular factorization of superconformal indices

Superconformal indices of four-dimensional N = 1 gauge theories factorize into holomorphic blocks. We interpret this as a modular property resulting from the combined action of an SL(3,Z) and SL(2,Z)

Localization of 4 d N = 1 theories on D 2 × T 2

We consider 4d N = 1 gauge theories with R-symmetry on a hemisphere times a torus. We apply localization techniques to evaluate the exact partition function through a cohomological reformulation of

The purpose of this paper is to show how central extensions of (possibly infinite-dimensional) Lie algebras integrate to central extensions of \'etale Lie 2-groups. In finite dimensions, central

Multiple sine, multiple elliptic gamma functions and rational cones

We define generalizations of the multiple elliptic gamma functions and the multiple sine functions, labelled by rational cones in R^r. For r=2,3 we prove that the generalized multiple elliptic gamm

The Elliptic Gamma Function and SL(3, Z)⋉Z3

Abstract The elliptic gamma function is a generalization of the Euler gamma function and is associated to an elliptic curve. Its trigonometric and rational degenerations are the Jackson q-gamma

Abstract We introduce and study elliptic zeta values, a two-parameter deformation of the values of Riemann's zeta function at positive integers. They are essentially Taylor coeffcients of the

We construct a gerbe over a complex reductive Lie group G attached to an invariant bilinear form on a maximal diagonalizable subalgebra which is Weyl group invariant and satisfies a parity condition.

An elliptic analogue of the multiple gamma function

A hierarchy of functions including the elliptic gamma function is introduced. It can be interpreted as an elliptic analogue of the multiple gamma function and its trigonometric limit coincides with a

We introduce differentiable stacks and explain the relationship with Lie groupoids. Then we study $S^1$-bundles and $S^1$-gerbes over differentiable stacks. In particular, we establish the
