A bstractIn this article we conjecture a relationship between 5d SCFT’s, that can be engineered by 5-brane webs in the presence of an O5−-plane, and 4d class S theories of type D. The specific relation is that compactification on a circle of the former leads to the latter. We present evidence for this conjecture. One piece of evidence, which is also an interesting application of this, is that it suggests identifications between different class S theories. This can in turn be tested by comparing… 
Partition functions of web diagrams with an O7−-plane
A bstractWe consider the computation of the topological string partition function for 5-brane web diagrams with an O7−-plane. Since upon quantum resolution of the orientifold plane these diagrams
KIAS-P 18002 5-brane webs for 5 d N = 1 G 2 gauge theories
We propose 5-brane webs for 5d N = 1 G2 gauge theories. From a Higgsing of the SO(7) gauge theory with a hypermultiplet in the spinor representation, we construct two types of 5-brane web
Magnetic quivers from brane webs with O7+-planes
Abstract We consider the Higgs branch of 5d fixed points engineered using brane webs with an O7+-plane. We use the brane construction to propose a set of rules to extract the corresponding magnetic
Five-brane webs, Higgs branches and unitary/orthosymplectic magnetic quivers
Abstract We study the Higgs branch of 5d superconformal theories engineered from brane webs with orientifold five-planes. We propose a generalization of the rules to derive magnetic quivers from
Compactifications of 5d SCFTs with a twist
A bstractWe study the compactification of 5d SCFTs to 4d on a circle with a twist in a discrete global symmetry element of these SCFTs. We present evidence that this leads to various 4dN$$
Fibre-base duality of 5d KK theories
We study circle compactifications of 6d superconformal field theories giving rise to 5d rank 1 and rank 2 Kaluza-Klein theories. We realise the resulting theories as M-theory compactifications on
Magnetic quivers from brane webs with O5 planes
Magnetic quivers have led to significant progress in the understanding of gauge theories with 8 supercharges at UV fixed points. For a given low-energy gauge theory realised via a Type II brane
On the compactification of 5d theories to 4d
We study general properties of the mapping between 5d and 4d superconformal field theories (SCFTs) under both twisted circle compactification and tuning of local relevant deformation and CB moduli.
Refined topological vertex with ON-planes
We propose refined topological vertex formalism for 5-brane systems with ON-planes by introducing a new vertex associated with reflection over an ONplane, which gives rise to new vertex and edge
