Equivariant BatalinVilkovisky formalism
20190719arXiv:1907.07995
by: Bonechi, Francesco (INFN, Florence) et al.
Abstract:
We study an equivariant extension of the BatalinVilkovisky formalism for quantizing gauge theories. Namely, we introduce a general framework to encompass failures of the quantum master equation, and we apply it to the natural equivariant extension of AKSZ solutions of the classical master equation (CME). As examples of the construction, we recover the equivariant extension of supersymmetric YangMills in 2d and of DonaldsonWitten theory.... 
Transversally Elliptic Complex and Cohomological Field Theory
20190430arXiv:1904.12782
UUITP1619
by: Festuccia, Guido (Uppsala U.) et al.
Abstract:
This work is a continuation of our previous paper arXiv:1812.06473 where we have constructed ${\cal N}=2$ supersymmetric YangMills theory on 4D manifolds with a Killing vector field with isolated fixed points. In this work we expand on the mathematical aspects of the theory, with a particular focus on its nature as a cohomological field theory. The wellknown DonaldsonWitten theory is a twisted version of ${\cal N}=2$ SYM and can also be constructed using the Atiy... 
Twisting with a Flip (the Art of Pestunization)
20181218arXiv:1812.06473
by: Festuccia, Guido (Uppsala U.) et al.
Abstract:
We construct ${\cal N}=2$ supersymmetric YangMills theory on 4D manifolds with a Killing vector field with isolated fixed points. It turns out that for every fixed point one can allocate either instanton or antiinstanton contributions to the partition function, and that this is compatible with supersymmetry. The equivariant DonaldsonWitten theory is a special case of our construction. We present a unified treatment of Pestun's calculation on $S^4$ and equivariant DonaldsonWitten... 
Solving qVirasoro constraints
20181002arXiv:1810.00761
by: Lodin, Rebecca (Uppsala U.) et al.
Abstract:
We show how qVirasoro constraints can be derived for a large class of (q,t)deformed eigenvalue matrix models by an elementary trick of inserting certain qdifference operators under the integral, in complete analogy with fullderivative insertions for betaensembles. From freefield point of view the models considered have zero momentum of the highest weight, which leads to an extra constraint T_{1} Z = 0. We then show how to solve these qVirasoro constraints recursively and comme... 
3d Mirror Symmetry from Sduality
20180905arXiv:1809.00736
UUITP37/18
Phys.Rev. D98 (2018) 126002
by: Nieri, Fabrizio (Uppsala U.) et al.
Abstract:
We consider type IIB SL(2,Z) symmetry to relate the partition functions of different 5d supersymmetric Abelian linear quiver YangMills theories in the Ωbackground and squashed S5 background. By Higgsing Sdual theories, we extract new and old 3d mirror pairs. Generically, the Higgsing procedure yields 3d defects on intersecting spaces, and we derive new hyperbolic integral identities expressing the equivalence of the squashed S3 par...
