"Exact results for 5-dimensional superconformal field theories"


Christoph Uhlemann , University of Michigan
[Host: Peter Arnold]
ABSTRACT:

5-dimensional superconformal field theories play an intriguing role in the general understanding of quantum field theory. They provide strongly-coupled UV fixed points for many perturbatively non-renormalizable 5-dimensional gauge theories, and upon compactification they provide new insights into many lower-dimensional theories. This makes them both useful and interesting in their own right. In this talk I will discuss recent progress in the understanding of 5-dimensional superconformal field theories through AdS/CFT dualities and non-perturbative field theory methods, leading to interesting exact results and many cross checks.
