Brane Brick Models, Toric Calabi-Yau 4-folds and 2d (0,2) Quivers

Exceptional Seminar Rak-Kyeong Seong (KIAS)

15:30 KCL
room K6.63

In this talk, I will discuss Type IIA brane configurations consisting of D4-branes suspended between NS5-branes which represent a large class of 2d (0,2) quiver gauge theories. We call these new constructions Brane Brick models. These are T-dual to D1-branes over singular toric Calabi-Yau 4-folds and encode information about the probed Calabi-Yau geometry as well as the corresponding GLSM. If time permits, I will present how Brane Brick models naturally realise in terms of a brane configuration 2d (0,2) Gadde-Gukov-Putrov triality.
