Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Abstract: We explore the properties of five-dimensional supersymmetric gauge theories living on 5-brane webs in orientifold 7-plane backgrounds. These include USp(2N) and SO(N) gauge theories with fundamental matter, as well as SU(N) gauge theories with symmetric and antisymmetric matter. We find a number of new 5d fixed point theories that feature enhanced global symmetries. We also exhibit a number of new 5d dualities.
