Five-dimensional SCFTs and gauge theory phases: an M-theory/type IIA perspective
We revisit the correspondence between Calabi-Yau (CY) threefold isolated singularities \mathbf{X}𝐗 and five-dimensional superconformal field theories (SCFTs), which arise at low energy in M-theory
Massive Abelian gauge symmetries and fluxes in F-theory
A bstractF-theory compactified on a Calabi-Yau fourfold naturally describes non- Abelian gauge symmetries through the singularity structure of the elliptic fibration. In contrast Abelian symmetries
Calabi – Yau Threefolds , and F-Theory
The F-theory vacuum constructed from an elliptic Calabi–Yau threefold with section yields an effective six-dimensional theory. The Lie algebra of the gauge sector of this theory and its
Higher‐dimensional gauge theories from string theory
We review some recent developments regarding supersymmetric field theories in six and five dimensions. In particular, we will describe the classification of supersymmetric six‐dimensional theories
Supersymmetric gauge theories from D3-branes on singularities
In this thesis we study four-dimensional supersymmetric gauge theories and their string theory realization. After an introduction and a brief review of some basic concepts at the interface of gauge
Anomaly cancelation in field theory and F-theory on a circle
A bstractWe study the manifestation of local gauge anomalies of four- and six-dimensional field theories in the lower-dimensional Kaluza-Klein theory obtained after circle compactification. We
Supergravity duals of gauge theories from F(4) gauged supergravity in six dimensions
We construct supergravity solutions dual to twisted field theories that are the worldvolume theories of D4-branes wrapped on 2, 3-cycles, and NS-fivebranes on 2-cycles. We first obtain the solutions
Instantons, symmetries and anomalies in five dimensions
Abstract All five-dimensional non-abelian gauge theories have a U(1)I global symmetry associated with instantonic particles. We describe an obstruction to coupling U(1)I to a classical background
Lie groups, Calabi-Yau threefolds, and F-theory
The F-theory vacuum constructed from an elliptic Calabi-Yau threefold with section yields an effective six-dimensional theory. The Lie algebra of the gauge sector of this theory and its
Gauged supergravity and singular Calabi-Yau manifolds
Compactifications of M-theory on singular manifolds contain additional charged massless states descending from M-branes wrapped on vanishing cycles. We construct the first explicit example of a
