We consider a topological quiver matrix model which is expected to give a dual description of the instanton dynamics of topological U(N) gauge theory on D6 branes. The model is a higher dimensional analogue of the ADHM matrix model that leads to Nekrasov's partition function. The fixed points of the toric action on the moduli space are labeled by colored plane partitions. Assuming the localization theorem, we compute the partition function as an equivariant index. It turns out that the… 

Seven-dimensional super Yang-Mills at negative coupling

We consider the partition function for Euclidean SU ( N ) super Yang-Mills on a squashed seven-sphere. We show that the localization locus of the partition function has instanton membrane solutions

We review the problem of Bogomol’nyi–Prasad–Sommerfield (BPS) state counting described by the generalized quiver matrix model of Atiyah–Drinfield–Hitchin–Manin type. In four dimensions the

Elliptic non-Abelian Donaldson-Thomas invariants of ℂ3

A bstractWe compute the elliptic genus of the D1/D7 brane system in flat space, finding a non-trivial dependence on the number of D7 branes, and provide an F-theory interpretation of the result. We

Spectral duality in elliptic systems, six-dimensional gauge theories and topological strings

A bstractWe consider Dotsenko-Fateev matrix models associated with compactified Calabi-Yau threefolds. They can be constructed with the help of explicit expressions for refined topological vertex,

Magnificent Four with Colors

We study the rank N magnificent four theory, which is the supersymmetric localization of U(N) super-Yang–Mills theory with matter (a super-group U(N|N) gauge theory) on a Calabi–Yau fourfold. Our

Torsion and supersymmetry in Ω-background

A bstractWe study the dimensional reduction of ten-dimensional super Yang-Mills theory in curved backgrounds with torsion. We examine the parallel spinor conditions and the constraints for the



Instanton counting, Macdonald function and the moduli space of D-branes

We argue the connection of Nekrasov's partition function in the Ω background and the moduli space of D-branes, suggested by the idea of geometric engineering and Gopakumar-Vafa invariants. In the

Topological Quiver Matrix Models and Quantum Foam

We study the matrix models that describe the BPS bound states of branes arising from the quiver picture of the derived category. These theories have a topological partition function that localizes to

Topological strings and Nekrasov's formulas

We apply the method of geometric transition and compute all genus topological closed string amplitudes compactified on local F0 by making use of the Chern-Simons gauge theory. We find an exact

The Topological Vertex

We construct a cubic field theory which provides all genus amplitudes of the topological A-model for all non-compact toric Calabi-Yau threefolds. The topology of a given Feynman diagram encodes the

Refined Topological Vertex and Instanton Counting

It has been proposed recently that topological A-model string amplitudes for toric Calabi-Yau 3-folds in non self-dual graviphoton background can be caluculated by a diagrammatic method that is

Instantons and the 5D U(1) gauge theory with extra adjoint

In this paper, we compute the partition function of 5D supersymmetric U(1) gauge theory with extra adjoint matter in general Ω background. It is well known that such partition functions encode very

Instanton Counting and Chern-Simons Theory

The instanton partition function of N = 2, D = 4 SU(2) gauge theory is obtained by taking the field theory limit of the topological open string partition function, given by a Chern-Simons theory, of

Abstract:We build nearly topological quantum field theories in various dimensions. We give special attention to the case of eight dimensions for which we first consider theories depending only on
