Abstract [en]

We study properties of the full partition function for the U(1) 5D N=2∗ gauge theory with adjoint hypermultiplet of mass M. This theory is ultimately related to abelian 6D (2,0) theory. We construct the full non-perturbative partition function on toric Sasaki-Einstein manifolds by gluing flat copies of the Nekrasov partition function and we express the full partition function in terms of the generalized double elliptic gamma function GC2 associated with a certain moment map cone C. The answer exhibits a curious SL(4,ℤ) modular property. Finally, we propose a set of rules to construct the partition function that resembles the calculation of 5D supersymmetric partition function with the insertion of defects of various co-dimensions.

Abstract [en]

Gauge theories is one of the most pervasive and important subject of modern theoretical physics, and there are still many things about them we do not understand. In particular dealing with strongly coupled theories where normal perturbative techniques do not apply is a fundamental open problem. In this thesis, we study a particular class of toy-models that have supersymmetry, which makes them much easier to deal with. We employ the mathematical technique of localization, which for supersymmetric theories lets us evaluate certain path integrals exactly and for any value of the coupling. This is used to study the 5d N=1 theories placed on toric Sasaki-Einstein manifolds and compute their partition functions, finding that they factorize into a product of contributions from each closed Reeb orbit of the manifold. This computation leads us to define two new hierarchies of special functions associated to these manifolds, and we study their properties. Finally, we use the 5d N=1 theories to construct new 4d N=2 theories on a large class of curved backgrounds. These theories have some interesting features, such as supporting both instantons and anti-instantons, and having a position-dependent complexified coupling constant.

Abstract [en]

We explore five-dimensional supersymmetric quantum field theories and topological quantum field theories. In five dimensions, we describe a framework to consistently define a supersymmetric theory on a curved spacetime manifold. This is the starting point for the so called supersymmetric localization procedure which we exploit to compute the partition function on a large class of five-dimensional backgrounds. We discuss the geometric structure behind our result and analyze various extension of this program. Next, we present a seven-dimensional bulk topological field theory of abelian three-form potentials with a single derivative Chern-Simons-like action. We show how the edge modes can be understood from the perspective of a six-dimensional generalization of the fractional quantum Hall effect and compute an analog of the Laughlin wavefunction. We also explain why this has interesting implications for the study of six-dimensional superconformal field theories. Finally, we review a new approach to integrable lattice models in 1+1 dimensions based on a four-dimensional Chern-Simons-like theory and propose a strategy for its string theory embedding.
