DESCRIPTION:I discuss a 3D N=4 SCFT that is constructed by gauging a globa
l symmetry of the Gaiotto-Witten T[U(N)] theory. Supersymmetric localizati
on allows for the exact evaluation of its sphere partition function which
reveals a remarkably simple answer that can be interpreted as a giant grav
iton expansion. I give some credence to this interpretation in a direct ho
lographic study of their S-fold dual. The holographic dual shows the exist
ence of a dim_C=1 (non-compact) conformal manifold that preserves N=2 supe
rsymmetry and a dim_C=2 conformal manifold where all susy is broken. By fu
rther holographic study we can compute at large rank\, the (low lying) spe
ctrum of primary operators\, the partition functions on compact 3-manifold
s and study their line operators.\n\nhttps://indico.cern.ch/event/1390533/
