We propose an exact, finite N formula for the partition function over 1/4th BPS states in the conformal field theory on the world volume of N coincident M5 branes, and 1/8th BPS states in the theory of N conincident M2 branes. We obtain our partition function by performing the radial quantization of the Coulomb Branches of these theories and rederive the same formula from the quantization of supersymmetric giant and dual giant gravitons in AdS7 × S4 and AdS4 × S7. Our partition function is… 

M5-branes from gauge theories on the 5-sphere

A bstractWe use the 5-sphere partition functions of supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories to explore the (2, 0) superconformal theory on S5 × S1. The 5d theories can be regarded as Scherk-Schwarz

Supersymmetric Partition Functions in the AdS/CFT Conjecture

We study supersymmetric partition functions in several versions of the AdS/CFT correspondence. We present an Index for superconformal field theories in d = 3, 4, 5, 6. This captures all information

Indices for superconformal field theories in 3, 5 and 6 dimensions

We present a trace formula for a Witten type Index for superconformal field theories in d = 3, 5 and 6 dimensions, generalizing a similar recent construction in d = 4. We perform a detailed study of

Comments on the Bagger-Lambert theory and multiple M2-branes

We study the SO(8) superconformal theory proposed recently by Bagger and Lambert as a possible worldvolume theory for multiple M2-branes. For their explicit example with gauge group SO(4), we rewrite

Superconformal Indices for N = 6 Chern Simons Theories

Aharony, Bergman, Jafferis and Maldacena have recently proposed a dual gravitational description for a family of superconformal Chern Simons theories in three spacetime dimensions. In this note we

Notes on superconformal Chern-Simons-Matter theories

The three dimensional = 2 supersymmetric Chern-Simons theory coupled to matter fields, possibly deformed by a superpotential, give rise to a large class of exactly conformal theories with Lagrangian

Aspects of monopole operators in = 6 Chern-Simons theory

We study local operators of U(N) × U(N) = 6 Chern-Simons-matter theory including a class of magnetic monopole operators. To take into account the interaction of monopoles and basic fields for large

BPS solutions in ABJM theory and maximal super Yang-Mills on R × S2

A bstractWe investigate BPS solutions in ABJM theory on R × S2. We find new BPS solutions, which have nonzero angular momentum as well as nontrivial configurations of fluxes. Applying the “Higgsing

Comments on 1/16 BPS Quantum States and Classical Configurations

We formulate the problem of counting 1/16 BPS states of = 4 Yang Mills theory as the enumeration of the local cohomology of an operator acting on holomorphic fields on C2. We study aspects of the



Supersymmetric states of N=4 Yang-Mills from giant gravitons

Mikhailov has constructed an infinite family of 1 BPS D3-branes in AdS5 × S 5 . We regulate Mikhailov's solution space by focussing on finite dimensional submani- folds. Our submanifolds are

BPS Branes From Baryons

We elucidate the relationship between supersymmetric D3-branes and chiral baryonic operators in the AdS=CFT correspondence. For supersymmetric backgrounds of the form AdS5£H, we characterize via

M Theory on AdS p × S 11 − p and Superconformal Field Theories

We study the large N limit of the interacting superconformal field theories associated with N M5 branes or M2 branes using the recently proposed relation between these theories and M theory on AdS

Particles on AdS4/7 and primary operators on M2/5 brane worldvolumes

I identify a correspondence between the various spherical harmonic modes of massless 11 dimensional fields propagating on the AdS4/7 in an AdS4/7 × S7/4 compactification of M theory, and the

An Index for 4 Dimensional Super Conformal Theories

We present a trace formula for an index over the spectrum of four dimensional superconformal field theories on S3 ×  time. Our index receives contributions from states invariant under at least one

Large N BPS states and emergent quantum gravity

This paper provides a heuristic derivation of how classical gravitational physics in the AdS/CFT correspondence appears from the strong dynamics of the N = 4 SYM theory in a systematic way. We do

Counting 1/8-BPS Dual-Giants

We count 1/8-BPS states in type IIB string theory on AdS_5 x S^5 background which carry three independent angular momenta on S^5. These states can be counted by considering configurations of multiple

Holomorphic D7-branes and flavored N=1 gauge theories

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 cycles

Dual giant gravitons in AdSm × Yn (Sasaki-Einstein)

We consider BPS motion of dual giant gravitons on AdS5 × Y5 where Y5 represents a five-dimensional Sasaki-Einstein manifold. We find that the phase space for the BPS dual giant gravitons is
