Localization of supersymmetric field theories on non-compact hyperbolic three-manifolds

Regular Seminar Daisuke Yokoyama (King's College London)

14:00 IC
room H503

I am going to talk about how to derive an exact partition function of supersymmetric field theories on a supersymmetry-preserving quotient of Euclidean AdS_3 by localization. This is one of first examples about localization on non-compact spaces. I will describe the situation by comparing it to a situation in compact spaces. Then, I will explain how to perform a localization procedure on the manifold, and finally, I will discuss the features of the partition function we derived.
