Webs of (p,q) 5-branes, five dimensional field theories and grid diagrams
We continue to study 5d N = 1 supersymmetric field theories and their compactifications on a circle through brane configurations. We develop a model, which we call (p,q) Webs, which enables simple
Instanton operators and symmetry enhancement in 5d supersymmetric quiver gauge theories
A bstractWe consider general 5d SU(N ) quiver gauge theories whose nodes form an ADE Dynkin diagram of type G. Each node has SU(Ni) gauge group of general rank, Chern-Simons level κi and additional
Anomalous Interactions of Five-Dimensional USp(2k) Gauge Theory
We consider the five-dimensional USp(2k) gauge theory which consists of one antisymmetric and nf fundamental hypermultiplets. This gauge theory is a many-probe generalization of the SU(2) gauge
Five-dimensional Yang-Mills-Einstein Supergravity on Orbifold Spacetimes: From Phenomenology to M-theory
Five-dimensional N = 2 Yang-Mills-Einstein supergravity and its couplings to hyper and tensor multiplets are considered on an orbifold spacetime of the formM4×S/Γ, where Γ is a discrete group. As is
Chern-Simons theory from M5-branes and calibrated M2-branes
Abstract We study a sector of the 5d maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory on S 5 consisting of 1/8-BPS Wilson loop operators contained within a great S 3 inside S 5. We conjecture that
Wilson Loops in 5 d N = 1 SCFTs and AdS / CFT
We consider 1 2 -BPS circular Wilson loops in a class of 5d superconformal field theories on S. The largeN limit of the vacuum expectation values of Wilson loops are computed both by localization in

D-Brane Realization of N=2 Super Yang-Mills Theory in Four Dimensions
We develop and study a D-brane realization of 4D N=2 super Yang-Mills theory. It is a type IIB string theory compactified on R^6\times K3 and containing parallel 7-branes. It can also be regarded as
