Dualities in Superconformal Field Theories
12 Jun 2017 - 30 Jun 2017 • Pollica, NA, Italy
Abstract:
Recent years has seen substantial work on superconformal field theories (SCFTs) with 8 or more supercharges (N≥2 in four dimensions) in diverse dimensions. By now a vast set of tools has been developed. These include Seiberg-Witten technology, conformal bootstrap inspired techniques, F/M-theory constructions, BPS quivers and wall-crossing formulas, supersymmetric localization, superconformal indices and partition functions, tt* equations, class S constructions, and ubiquitous supersymmetric dualities. Combining the insights obtained using all these different techniques could be of tremendous help in advancing our systematic understanding of SCFTs with enough supersymmetry. Arguably one of the main impediments is the breadth of the specialties involved. This workshop aims at overcoming this impediment by bringing together researchers from these different communities. Our goal is to explore how these, sometimes orthogonal, pieces of information about SCFTs can be combined to chart out the space of consistent SCFTs and to determine their basic properties. The workshop will be three weeks long. The first two weeks will have a traditional format consisting of a light schedule of talks meant to encourage discussions and interactions between the participants. In the final week we will try something less traditional by devoting the week to collective research.
