Five-dimensional gauge theories and the local B-model

  title={Five-dimensional gauge theories and the local B-model},
  author={Andrea Brini and Kento Osuga},
We propose an effective framework for computing the prepotential of the topological B-model on a class of local Calabi–Yau geometries related to the circle compactification of five-dimensional N = 1 super Yang–Mills theory with simple gauge group. In the simply-laced case, we construct Picard–Fuchs operators from the Dubrovin connection on the Frobenius manifolds associated to the extended affine Weyl groups of type ADE. In general, we propose a purely algebraic construction of Picard–Fuchs…

Five-dimensional gauge theories and local mirror symmetry
Abstract We study the dynamics of 5-dimensional gauge theory on M 4 ×S 1 by compactifying type II/M theory on degenerate Calabi–Yau manifolds. We use the local mirror symmetry and shall show that the
Five-dimensional supersymmetric gauge theories and degenerations of Calabi-Yau spaces
Abstract We discuss five-dimensional supersymmetric gauge theories. An anomaly renders some theories inconsistent and others consistent only upon including a Wess-Zumino type Chern-Simons term. We
The Hilbert series of the one instanton moduli space
The moduli space of k G-instantons on $ {\mathbb{R}^4} $ for a classical gauge group G is known to be given by the Higgs branch of a supersymmetric gauge theory that lives on Dp branes probing D(p +
Abstract After the work of Seiberg and Witten, it has been seen that the dynamics of N = 2 Yang-Mills theory is governed by a Riemann surface ϵ In particular, the integral of a special differential
Chern-Simons theory on spherical Seifert manifolds, topological strings and integrable systems
We consider the Gopakumar-Ooguri-Vafa correspondence, relating ${\rm U}(N)$ Chern-Simons theory at large $N$ to topological strings, in the context of spherical Seifert 3-manifolds. These are
Instanton counting, Macdonald function and the moduli space of D-branes
We argue the connection of Nekrasov's partition function in the Ω background and the moduli space of D-branes, suggested by the idea of geometric engineering and Gopakumar-Vafa invariants. In the
Mirror symmetry for extended affine Weyl groups
We give a uniform, Lie-theoretic mirror symmetry construction for the Frobenius manifolds defined by Dubrovin–Zhang in [20] on the orbit spaces of extended affine Weyl groups, including exceptional
Chern-Simons theory on L(p,q) lens spaces and Gopakumar-Vafa duality
Abstract We consider aspects of Chern–Simons theory on L ( p , q ) lens spaces and its relation with matrix models and topological string theory on Calabi–Yau threefolds, searching for possible new
On Lie groups and Toda lattices
We extend the construction of the relativistic Toda chains as integrable systems on the Poisson submanifolds in Lie groups beyond the case of the A-series. For the simply laced case this is just a
Matrix model as a mirror of Chern-Simons theory
Using mirror symmetry, we show that Chern-Simons theory on certain manifolds such as lens spaces reduces to a novel class of hermitean matrix models, where the measure is that of unitary matrix
