We study classical M5 brane solutions in the probe limit in the AdS7 × S4 background geometry that preserve the minimal amount of supersymmetry. These solutions describe the holography of codimension-2 defects in the 6d boundary dual N = (0, 2) supersymmetric gauge theories. The general solution is described in terms of holomorphic functions that satisfy a scaling condition. We show the behavior of the world-volume of a special class of BPS solutions near the AdS boundary region can be… Expand


1/2-BPS states in M theory and defects in the dual CFTs
We study supersymmetric branes in AdS7 × S4 and AdS4 × S7. We show that in the former case the membranes should be viewed as M5 branes with fluxes and we identify two types of such fivebranes (theyExpand
Type IIB Superstrings, BPS Monopoles, And Three-Dimensional Gauge Dynamics
We propose an explanation via string theory of the correspondence between the Coulomb branch of certain three-dimensional supersymmetric gauge theories and certain moduli spaces of magneticExpand
Counting wobbling dual-giants
We derive the BPS equations for D3-branes embedded in AdS5 × S5 that preserve at least two supercharges. These are given in terms of conditions on the pullbacks of some space-time differentialExpand
N = 2 supersymmetric gauge theories in four dimensions are studied by formulating them as the quantum field theories derived from configurations of fourbranes, fivebranes, and sixbranes in Type IIAExpand
Surface operators and separation of variables
A bstractAlday, Gaiotto, and Tachikawa conjectured relations between certain 4d N = 2 supersymmetric field theories and 2d Liouville conformal field theory. We study generalizations of theseExpand
Probing N=4 SYM With Surface Operators
In this paper we study surface operators in N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory. We compute surface operator observables, such as the expectation value of surface operators, the correlationExpand
Gauge Theory, Ramification, And The Geometric Langlands Program
In the gauge theory approach to the geometric Langlands program, ramification can be described in terms of "surface operators," which are supported on two-dimensional surfaces somewhat as Wilson orExpand
Giant gravitons from holomorphic surfaces
We introduce a class of supersymmetric cycles in spacetimes of the form AdS times a sphere or T 1;1 which can be considered as generalizations of the giant gravitons. Branes wrapped on these cyclesExpand
Invasion of the giant gravitons from Anti-de Sitter space
It has been known for some time that the AdS/CFT correspondence predicts a limit on the number of single particle states propagating on the compact spherical component of the AdS × S geometry. TheExpand
M5-branes and Wilson surfaces in AdS$_{7}$/CFT$_{6}$ correspondence
We study AdS$_{7}$/CFT$_{6}$ correspondence between M-theory on AdS$_{7} \times S^{4}$ and the 6D $\mathcal{N} = (2,0)$ superconformal field theory. In particular we focus on Wilson surfaces. We useExpand
