One of the main challenges in 3d-3d correspondence is that no existent approach offers a complete description of 3d $N=2$ SCFT $T[M_3]$ --- or, rather, a "collection of SCFTs" as we refer to it in the paper --- for all types of 3-manifolds that include, for example, a 3-torus, Brieskorn spheres, and hyperbolic surgeries on knots. The goal of this p...

We study the phase structure of the Witten-Sakai-Sugimoto model in the plane of temperature and baryon chemical potential, including the effect of a nonzero current quark mass. Our study is performed in the decompactified limit of the model, which, at least regarding the chiral phase transition, appears to be closer to real-world QCD than the origi...

The vacuum expectation values of conserved currents play an essential role in the generalized hydrodynamics of integrable quantum field theories. We use analytic continuation to extend these results for the excited state expectation values in a finite volume. Our formulas are valid for diagonally scattering theories and incorporate all finite size ...

We revisit our earlier work which lead to a periodic table of Borcherds-Kac-Moody algebras that appeared in the context of the refined generating function of quarter-BPS (dyons) in $\mathcal{N}=4$ supersymmetric four-dimensional string theory. We make new additions to the periodic table by making use of connections with generalized Mathieu moonshin...

We study the dynamics of non-Abelian vortex strings supported in ${\mathcal N}=2$ supersymmetric QCD with the U$(N)$ gauge group and $N_f=N$ quark flavors deformed by the mass $\mu$ of the adjoint matter. In the limit of large $\mu$ the bulk four-dimensional theory flows to ${\mathcal N}=1$ supersymmetric QCD. The dynamics of orientational zero mod...

In this paper, we discuss the Bhabha and Compton scattering for the quantum electrodynamics defined in the framework of SIM(2) very special relativity (VSR). The main aspect of the VSR setting is that it admits different types of interactions appearing in a nonlocal form due to the modified gauge invariance. We explore the richness of these new cou...

Cortés, Vicente Lazaroiu, Calin Shahbazi, Carlos S.

We develop a new framework for the study of generalized Killing spinors, where generalized Killing spinor equations, possibly with constraints, can be formulated equivalently as systems of partial differential equations for a polyform satisfying algebraic relations in the K\"ahler-Atiyah bundle constructed by quantizing the exterior algebra bundle ...

We define Donaldson-Thomas type invariants for non-commutative projective Calabi-Yau-3 schemes whose associated graded algebras are finite over their centers. As an application, we study and compute some DT invariants for the quantum Fermat quintic threefolds.

We describe the back-reaction of gaugino condensates in supersymmetric AdS4 Type II String Theory compactifications with fluxes. We use generalized complex geometry to capture the modification of the ten-dimensional supersymmetry equations and show that the cosmological constant prevents the cycle wrapped by the branes with gaugino condensation fro...

We consider circular Wilson loops in a defect version of $\mathcal{N}=4$ super-Yang-Mills theory which is dual to the D3-D5 brane system with $k$ units of flux. When the loops are parallel to the defect, we can construct both BPS and non-BPS operators, depending on the orientation of the scalar couplings in the R-symmetry directions. At strong 't H...
