  author={Hirotaka Hayashi and Gianluca Zoccarato},
  journal={Journal of High Energy Physics},
A bstractWe analyse the computation of the partition function of 5d TN theories in Higgs branches using the topological vertex. The theories are realised by a web of (p, q) 5-branes whose dual description may be given by an M-theory compactification on a certain local non-toric Calabi-Yau threefold. We explicitly show how it is possible to directly apply the topological vertex to the non-toric geometry. Using this novel technique, which considerably simplifies the computation by the existing…
