We present some new exact results for general four-dimensional superconformal field theories. We derive differential equations governing the coupling constant dependence of chiral primary… Expand

We study a topological string description of the c < 1 non-critical string whose matter part is defined by the time-like linear dilaton CFT. We show that the topologically twisted N=2 SL(2,R)/U(1)… Expand

A certain topological field theory is shown to be equivalent to the compactified c = 1 string. This theory is described in both Landau-Ginzburg and Kazama-Suzuki formulations. The genus-g partition… Expand

We construct new topological theories related to sigma models whose target space is a seven-dimensional manifold of G(2) holonomy. We define a new type of topological twist and identify the BRST… Expand

In these notes we give a review of topological string theory. We discuss twodimensional topological field theories, which represent its classical backgrounds. We describe their symmetries and the… Expand

We present simple observations on the topological nature of N=2 superconformal field theories. We point out that under a suitable redefinition of the energy-momentum tensor the central charge of N=2… Expand

A twisted version of four dimensional supersymmetric gauge theory is formulated. The model, which refines a nonrelativistic treatment by Atiyah, appears to underlie many recent developments in… Expand

We give a derivation of the loop equation for two-dimensional gravity from the KdV equations and the string equation of the one matrix model. We find that the loop equation is equivalent to an… Expand
