Description

We study compactifications of an infinite family of four-dimensional N=1 SCFTs on a Riemann surface in the presence of arbitrary background fluxes of global symmetries. The four-dimensional parent theories have holographic Sasaki--Einstein duals in type IIB string theory. Central charges and R-charges of baryonic operators in the resulting two-dimensional N=(0,2) theories are computed in three distinct ways: from the field theory side utilizing the c-extremization principle, its recently discovered geometric dual formulation, and holographically using new AdS3 duals of two-dimensional field theories.
