Aspects of 4d supersymmetric dynamics and geometry

04/28/2022 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Abstract: We will overview the program of geometrically engineering four dimensional supersymmetric QFTs as compactifications of six dimensional SCFTs. In particular we will discuss how strong coupling phenomena in four dimensions, such as duality and emergence of symmetry, can be better understood in such geometric constructions.
