Informal HEP Journal club: Supersymmetric AdS_5 solutions of massive IIA
21 November 2016 13:00 in CM219
After briefly reviewing 6d N=(1,0) SCFT's and their brane engineering in type IIA/M-theory, I will present a classification of infinitely many analytic AdS_7 vacua of massive IIA supergravity dual to them, as well as an infinite class of new AdS_5 x Sigma_g vacua (where Sigma_g is a Riemann surface of genus g>1). The latter can be related to the former via a simple universal map for the metric, dilaton and fluxes. The natural interpretation of this map is that the dual 6d N=(1,0) SCFT's give rise to 4d N=1 SCFT's upon twisted compactification on Sigma_g. The ratio of their a conformal anomalies is proportional to the Euler characteristic of Sigma_g. We find that it is a simple cubic function of the flux integers.
