Compactifications of 5d SCFTs with a twist

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study the compactification of 5d SCFTs to 4d on a circle with a twist in a discrete global symmetry element of these SCFTs. We present evidence that this leads to various 4dN = 2 isolated SCFTs. These include many known theories as well as seemingly new ones. The known theories include the recently discovered rank 1 SU(4) SCFT and its mass deformations. One application of the new SCFTs is in the dual descriptions of the 4d gauge theory SU(N)+1S+(N −2)F. Also interesting is the appearance of a theory with rank 1 and F4 global symmetry.
