# On monopole bubbling contributions to ’t Hooft loops

@article{Assel2019OnMB, title={On monopole bubbling contributions to ’t Hooft loops}, author={Benjamin Assel and Antonio Sciarappa}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2019}, volume={2019}, pages={1-44} }

A bstractMonopole bubbling contributions to supersymmetric ’t Hooft loops in 4d N$$ \mathcal{N} $$ = 2 theories are computed by SQM indices. As recently argued, those indices are hard to compute due to the presence of Coulomb vacua that are not captured by standard localization techniques. We propose an algorithmic method to compute the full bubbling contributions that circumvent this issue, by considering SQM with more matter fields and isolating the bubbling terms as residues in flavor…
