## Two-dimensional abelian BF theory in Lorenz gauge as a twisted N = (2,2) superconformal field theory

Journal of Geometry and Physics. 2018. Vol. 131. P. 122-137.

We study the two-dimensional topological abelian BF theory in the Lorenz gauge and, surprisingly, we find that the gauged-fixed theory is a free type B twisted N = (2, 2) superconformal theory with odd linear target space, with the ghost field c being the pullback of the linear holomorphic coordinate on the target. The Q(BRST) of the gauge-fixed theory equals the total Q of type B twisted theory. This unexpected identification of two different theories opens a way for nontrivial deformations of both of these theories. (C) 2018 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

We show that the dual partition function of the pure $\mathcal N=2$ $SU(2)$ gauge theory in the self-dual $\Omega$-background (a) is given by Fredholm determinant of a generalized Bessel kernel and (b) coincides with the tau function associated to the general solution of the Painlev\'e III equation of type $D_8$ (radial sine-Gordon equation). In particular, ...

We study the extended prepotentials for the S-duality class of quiver gauge theories, considering them as quasiclassical tau-functions, depending on gauge theory condensates and bare couplings. The residue formulas for the third derivatives of extended prepotentials are proven, which lead to effective way of their computation, as expansion in the weak-coupling regime. We discuss also ...

We study twist-field representations of the W-algebras and generalize the construction of the corresponding vertex operators to D- and B-series. We demonstrate how the computation of characters of such representations leads to the nontrivial identities involving lattice theta-functions. We propose a construction of their exact conformal blocks, which for D-series express them in terms of ...

We continue to investigate the dual description of the Virasoro conformal blocks
arising in the framework of the classical limit of the AdS 3 /CFT 2 correspondence. To give such
an interpretation in previous studies, certain restrictions were necessary. Our goal here is to
consider a more general situation available through the worldline approximation to the dual
AdS gravity. ...

We compute the ultraviolet divergences in the self-dual Yang-Mills theory, both in the purely perturbative (zero instanton charge) and topologically non-trivial sectors. It is shown in particular that the instanton measure is precisely the same as the one-loop result in the standard Yang-Mills theory. ...

We study four types of one-point torus blocks arising in the large central charge regime. There are the global block, the light block, the heavy-light block, and the linearized classical block, according to different regimes of conformal dimensions. It is shown that the blocks are not independent being connected to each other by various links. ...

We consider the conformal blocks in the theories with extended conformal W-symmetry for the integer Virasoro central charges. We show that these blocks for the generalized twist fields on sphere can be computed exactly in terms of the free field theory on the covering Riemann surface, even for a non-abelian monodromy group. The generalized twist ...

We present an approach that gives rigorous construction of a class of crossing invariant functions in c = 1 CFTs from the weakly invariant distributions on the moduli space \( {\mathcal{M}}_{0,4}^{\mathrm{SL}\left(s,\mathbb{C}\right)} \) of SL(2, ℂ) flat connections on the sphere with four punctures. By using this approach we show how to obtain correlation functions in the Ashkin-Teller and the Runkel- ...

In this paper we consider parafermionic Liouville field theory. We study integral representations of three-point correlation functions and develop a method allowing us to compute them exactly. In particular, we evaluate the generalization of Selberg integral obtained by insertion of parafermionic polynomial. Our result is justified by different approach based on dual representation of parafermionic ...

The one-matrix model is considered. The generating function of the correlation numbers is defined in such a way that this function coincide with the generating function of the Liouville gravity. Using the Kontsevich theorem we explain that this generating function is an analytic continuation of the generating function of the Topological gravity. We check the ...
