Aspects of supersymmetric gauge theories and conformal field theories in five and three dimensions

Abstract:

Supersymmetric gauge theories and superconformal field theories have long played a central role in string theory. In this thesis, which is split into two parts, we explore multiple facets of this rich class of theories.

In the first part we establish a convenient way to describe 5d SCFTs and gauge theories --- generalised toric polygons (GTPs). Based on insights from (p,q) 5-brane-webs we derive a dictionary between a 5d theory 𝑻P and its associated GTP...
