Factorization of N=2 theories partition functions on the squashed 3-sphere
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
AbstractWe show that partition functions of N=2 theories on the squashed 3-sphere can be factorized into pairs of vortex theories defined on the two copies of R^2 x S1, corresponding to the two degeneration limits of the ellipsoid. We comment on how the ellipsoid partition function appears to provide the modular invariant non-perturbative completion of the vortex theory. We conclude with the geometrical engineering of the vortex theory.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
