(2,0) theory on (singular) circle fibrations

Tuesday 10th April 2012 - 14:00 to 15:00
INI Seminar Room 2
Compactification of six-dimensional (2,0) superconformal theory on a circle has five-dimensional maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory as its low-energy effective theory. We describe the generalization to six-manifolds that are circle fibrations. A further generalization is to allow certain kinds of singularities where the fibre radius shrinks to zero.
