# Liouville/Toda central charges from M5-branes

@inproceedings{Alday2009LiouvilleTodaCC, title={Liouville/Toda central charges from M5-branes}, author={Luis F. Alday and Francesco Benini and Yuji Tachikawa}, year={2009} }

We show that the central charge of the Liouville and ADE Toda theories can be reproduced by equivariantly integrating the anomaly eight-form of the corresponding six-dimensional N = (0, 2) theories, which describe the low-energy dynamics of M5-branes.
