The South East Mathematical Physics seminars bring together mathematical physicists based in and around the South East of England working on any aspect of mathematical physics, supported by a London Mathematical Society Joint Research Groups grant and hosted in virtual format by ICMS.  

You will be sent a link to the Zoom meeting first thing on Tuesday mornings.

Title: Magnetic quivers from brane webs with O5 planes

Abstract: The Higgs branch of 5d N=1 SQCD theories at infinite gauge coupling is often inaccessible via standard tools. The recently introduced concept of magnetic quivers proves to be a powerful tool able to probe the finite and infinite coupling limits in a uniform manner. In this talk, I will focus on 5d N=1 SQCD theories whose Higgs branch at infinite coupling exhibits exceptional global symmetries. By realizing the theory as a brane web configuration with orientifold planes, the corresponding unitary-orthosymplectic magnetic quivers can then be readily obtained.Title to follow
