DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Seung Joo Lee (Virginia Tech)\nMany of the gauged dy
namics motivated by string theory come with gapless asymptotic directions.
In this talk\, we focus on d=1 GLSM's of such kind and their Witten indic
es\, having in mind of the associated D-brane bound state problems. Upon i
llustrating by examples that twisted partition functions can be misleading
\, we proceed to explore how physical Witten indices can sometimes be embe
dded therein. There arise further subtleties when gapless continuum sector
s come from a gauge multiplet\, as in pure Yang-Mills or non-primitive qui
ver theories. For such theories\, the twisted partition functions tend to
involve fractional expressions. We point out that these are tied to the no
tion of rational invariant in the wall-crossing formulae\, offering a gene
ral mechanism of extracting the Witten index directly from the twisted par
tition function.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/611006/contributions/2644

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Heeyeon Kim (Perimeter Institute)\nI will talk about
three-dimensional N=2 supersymmetric gauge theories on M_{g\,p}\, a circl
e bundle of degree p over a genus g Riemann surface. We compute the supers
ymmetric partition functions on M_{g\,p} and correlation functions of BPS
loop operators. We also consider four-dimensional uplift of this construct
ion\, which computes the generalized index of N=1 gauge theories defined o
n elliptic fibration over genus g Riemann surface. We find that the partit
ion function or index can be written as a sum over "Bethe vacua” of two-
dimensional A-twisted theory obtained by compactification. With this frame
work\, we will see how the partition functions on manifolds with different
topologies are related to each other. It also provides a novel tool to st
udy various supersymmetric dualities\, which allows us to study the action
of the dualities on the co-dimension two BPS operators.\n\nhttps://indico

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Masazumi Honda (Weizmann Institute of Science)\nPert
urbative series in quantum field theory is typically divergent.\nThere is
a standard way to resum divergent series called Borel resummation. While p
erturbative series in typical field theory is expected to be non-Borel sum
mable\, it is natural to ask when perturbative series is Borel summable an
d if it is non-Borel summable\, what is a correct way to resum the perturb
ative series. In my talk I will first discuss that we can show Borel summa
bility of perturbative series in 4d N=2 and 5d N=1 supersymmetric gauge th
eories with Lagrangians for various observables. It turns out that exact r
esults in these theories can be obtained by summing over the Borel resumma
tions with every instanton number. I also discuss perturbative series in g
eneral 3d N=2 supersymmetric Chern-Simons matter theory\, which is given b
y a power series expansion of inverse Chern-Simons levels. We prove that t
he perturbative series are always Borel summable along imaginary axis. It
turns out that the Borel resummations along this direction are the same as
exact results. I will also give physical interpretations of singularities
in Borel plane for this class of theories. [PRL116\,no.21\,211601(2016)\,

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Sara Pasquetti (University of Milan-Bicocca)\n[Collo
quium.] Dualities give us new perspectives on the dynamics of supersymmetr
ic gauge theories and are valuable tools to explore the strongly coupled p
hases. We know different types of dualities such as holographic\, UV and I
R dualities and various examples of correspondences relating supersymmetri
c gauge theories to lower-dimensional theories such as 2d CFTs. Over the l
ast 10 years the application of the localization technique to supersymmetr
ic theories defined on compact spaces in various dimensions has allowed us
to calculate exactly partition functions and correlators and to perform n
on-trivial tests of previously conjectured dualities and to discover new o
nes. I will review various types of IR dualities for 3d supersymmetric the
ories and discuss the strategies to test them. I will then propose a new
family of IR dualities involving theories with monopole operators deformat
ions entering the superpotential. I will argue that monopole deformed theo
ries can exits even if the monopole deformation is irrelevant at the IR fi
xed point of the undeformed theory.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/611006

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Stefano Cremonesi (Durham University)\nThree-dimensi
onal gauge theories with eight supercharges (3d N=4) have a rich moduli sp
ace of supersymmetric vacua with different low energy physics. This infrar

vours ("good theories")\, but less so if the number of flavours is small (
"bad theories"). In this talk I will focus on 3d N=4 super-QCD theories wi
th U(N) gauge group and N_f flavours of fundamental hypermultiplets. After
reviewing known results and puzzles about such theories\, I will discuss
their quantum corrected moduli space of vacua\, which consists of Higgs\,
Coulomb and mixed branches\, and their low energy physics as N and N_f are
varied. As a by-product\, I will clarify if and in which sense bad U(N) g

_f-N) theories with N_f flavours (plus free fields) at low energies\, as i

cluding the level-1 Wess-Zumino-Witten models for Deligne's exceptional Li

this enable us to confirm the structure of modular invariant partition fun

origin\, where it vanishes\, the partition function has a Cardy-like beha

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Mauricio Romo (IAS)\nAbstract: I'll review some gene
ral aspects of complex Chern-Simons theory on hyperbolic 3-manifolds\, foc
using on the case of gauge group G=SL(2\,C). After a brief introduction to
the Volume Conjecture (VC)\, for knot complements and\, a very recent mat
hematical proposal\, for closed hyperbolic 3-manifolds\, I'll show how com
plex Chern-Simons theory is related with them and how this connection lead
s to a novel generalization of the most recently proposed VC for closed 3-
manifolds.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/611006/contributions/2644712/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Sameer Murthy (King's College London)\nIn the late 8
0s and early 90s a three-way link was established between N=(2\,2) SCFTs\,
compact Calabi Yau (CY) manifolds\, and modular/Jacobi forms. These links
can be understood through the corresponding Gauged Linear Sigma Models an
d calculations of their elliptic genera. I will discuss how there are inte
resting modifications to these links when the spectrum involves a continuu
m. The corresponding players in the new relations are non-compact N=(2\,2)
SCFTs\, squashed toric manifolds\, and mock modular/mock Jacobi forms.\n\

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Hyenho Lho (ETH Zurich)\nI will prove the holomorphi
c anomaly equation for stable quotient invariant of local P2. This equatio
n is in the precise form predicted by B-model physics. If I have more time
\, I will also explain about the holomorphic anomaly equation for [C3/Z3]
and formal quintic invariants. This talk is based on joint work with Rahul
Pandharipande.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/611006/contributions/26445

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Sara Pasquetti (University of Milan-Bicocca)\nIn thi
s talk I will discuss 3d gauge theories with monopole operator entering th
e superpotential. Starting with the theory without monopole potential\, if
the monopole potential is relevant there is an RG flow to the monopole-de
formed theory. Here\, focusing on U(Nc) SQCD with Nf flavors and N=2 super
symmetry\, I will argue that even when the monopole potential is irrelevan
t\, the monopole-deformed theory can exist and admit an Aharony-like du
al description. I will present various checks and generalizations of this
duality.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/611006/contributions/2644581/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Sangmin Lee (Seoul National University)\nBrane Brick
models are 2d (0\,2) gauge theories on the world-volume of D1-branes prob
ing toric Calabi-Yau (CY) 4-fold singularities. Given a toric diagram\, we
can construct the gauge theory by orbifolding\, partial resolution\, or o
ther means. For abelian theories\, we can verify that the classical moduli
space coincides with the CY geometry\, most efficiently by using a combin
atorial tool called brick matching. The map between gauge theory and geome
try is in general many to one. In some concrete examples\, we show that th
e gauge theories corresponding to the same geometry are related to each ot
her via Gadde-Gukov-Putrov triality. One way to understand the triality is
to study the mirror dual of the toric CY singularity. Mirror symmetry lea
ds to a geometric unification of dualities in different dimensions\, where
the order of duality is (n-1) for a CY n-fold. At the quantum level\, we
expect that the abelian theory will flow to a sigma model on the CY singul
arity with the left-moving fermions transforming in the 6 representation o
f the SU(4) holonomy group of the tangent bundle. We confirm this expectat
ion by computing the elliptic genus of the gauge theory.\n\nhttps://indico
