Abstract [en]

We propose a stringy construction giving rise to a class of interacting and non-supersymmetric CFT's in six dimensions. Such theories may be obtained as an IR conformal fixed point of an RG flow ending up in a (1,0)" role="presentation" style="display: inline; font-size: 13.6px; word-wrap: normal; white-space: nowrap; float: none; direction: ltr; max-width: none; max-height: none; min-width: 0px; min-height: 0px; border: 0px; padding: 0px; margin: 0px; font-family: arial, verdana, sans-serif; position: relative;">(1,0)(1,0) theory in the UV.

Moreover, by adopting its 7d effective desciption, we are able to holographically compute the free energy and the operator spectrum in the novel IR conformal fixed point.
