Event Type: Seminar/Symposium

Non-trivial 5d SUSY theories can be engineered in string theory by using brane constructions or M-theory compactification on CY3. Such theories have interacting UV fixed points. We propose a systematic way to classify non-trivial 5d gauge theories by extending the previous attempt by Intriligator, Morrison and Seiberg. We will present the full classification of 5d gauge theories with simple gauge groups which flow to non-trivial fixed points.
