Selected writings

On the AGT correspondence:

On the M5-brane elliptic genus:

On the theta angle in QCD:

• Davide Gaiotto, Kazama-Suzuki models and BPS domain wall junctions in $N=1$ $SU(n)$ Super Yang-Mills (arxiv:1306.5661)

On extended TQFTs allegedly modelling topological phases of matter in solid state physics:

Suggestion that the Chern-Dold character from tmf to modular forms, sends a 2d SCFT to its partition function/elliptic genus/supersymmetric index:

and discussion of the 2d SCFTs (namely supersymmetric SU(2)-WZW-models) conjecturally corresponding, under this conjectural identification, to the elements of $\mathbb{Z}/24$ $\simeq$ $tmf^{-3}(\ast) = \pi_3(tmf)$ $\simeq$ $\pi_3(\mathbb{S})$ (the third stable homotopy group of spheres):
