Vortices and Vermas

Regular Seminar Matthew Bullimore (Oxford University)

13:15 KCL
room G01 Norfolk Building

In 3d gauge theories, monopole operators create and destroy vortices. I will explore this idea in the context of 3d supersymmetric gauge theories in the presence of an omega background, and explain how it leads to a finite version of the AGT correspondence.
