Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: New SCFTs From M5-Branes
14 December 2012 13:00 in CM221
I will describe a new infinite set of AdS/CFT dual pairs which come from M5-branes wrapping Riemann surfaces. These solutions interpolate between and extend beyond a famous pair of solutions by Maldacena and Nunez. Additionally, the dual SCFTs are so-called "non-Lagrangian" theories, which have no weakly coupled UV description yet can (and will) be described explicitly.
