Irregular conformal block is a new tool to study Argyres-Douglas theory, whose irregular vector is represented as a simultaneous eigenstate of a set of positive Virasoro generators. One way to find the irregular conformal block is to use the partition function of the \beta-ensemble of hermitian matrix model. So far the method is limited to the case of irregular singularity of even degree. In this letter, we present a new matrix model for the case of odd degree and calculate its partition… 
Argyres-Douglas theories and Liouville irregular states
Abstract We study irregular states of rank-two and three in Liouville theory, based on an ansatz proposed by D. Gaiotto and J. Teschner. Using these irregular states, we evaluate asymptotic
KEK-TH-1595 , RIKEN-MP-66 W 3 irregular states and isolated N = 2 superconformal field theories
We explore the proposal that the six-dimensional (2, 0) theory on the Riemann surface with irregular punctures leads to a four-dimensional gauge theory coupled to the isolated N = 2 superconformal
Argyres-Douglas theories, S-duality and AGT correspondence
We propose a Nekrasov-type formula for the instanton partition functions of fourdimensional N = 2 U(2) gauge theories coupled to (A1,D2n) Argyres-Douglas theories. This is carried out by extending
$\beta$-Deformed Matrix Models and 2d/4d Correspondence
We review the \(\beta \)-deformed matrix model approach to the correspondence between four-dimensional \(\mathcal {N}=2\) gauge theories and two-dimensional conformal field theories. The \(\beta

A slow review of the AGT correspondence
Starting with a gentle approach to the AGT correspondence from its 6d origin, these notes provide a wide survey of the literature on numerous extensions of the correspondence. This is the writeup of

Matrix models for irregular conformal blocks and Argyres-Douglas theories
A bstractAs regular conformal blocks describe the $ \mathcal{N} $ =2 superconformal gauge theories in four dimensions, irregular conformal conformal blocks are expected to reproduce the instanton

We consider the topological string partition function, including the Nekrasov deformation, for type IIB geometries with an A_{n-1} singularity over a Riemann surface. These models realize the N=2

We define the notion of a complete N = 2 supersymmetric theory in 4 dimensions as a UV complete theory for which all the BPS central charges can be arbitrarily varied as we vary its Coulomb branch
