5d N=1 SCFTs and Gauge Theories on Brane Webs: October 17-21, 2022

Organized by Amihay Hanany, Marcus Sperling, Antoine Bourget and Julius Grimminger Five dimensional (5d) Lagrangian gauge theories are non-renormalizable, however many 5d N=1 supersymmetric gauge theories can be understood as effective infrared (IR) descriptions of 5d or 6d conformal fixed points in the ultraviolet (UV) under the renormalization group (RG) flow. Consequently, several questions need […]

Dynamics of SCFTs and Special Functions: April 18-22, 2022

Organized by: Shlomo Sergei Razamat, and Masahito Yamazaki Recent years have seen significant progress in understanding the dynamics of supersymmetric quantum field theories in various space-time dimensions. This progress was partly due to the development of various localization techniques leading to exact computations of certain partition functions. Such computations can be expressed in terms of […]
