Monica Kang (Caltech) “4d SCFTs with a=c”

Seminar Organizer


Event Details


Abstract: I will present a particular set of 4d N=2 SCFTs that can be labeled with a pair of Lie groups of type ADE. For specific choices, we get infinitely many theories arising from this construction that have their two central charges to be identical: a=c (without taking any large N limit). Interestingly, the Schur indices of these theories are identical to that of N=4 super Yang-Mills upto rescaling fugacities. I will further utilize this construction to present various 4d N=1 SCFTs with a=c
