Seminar 03 - A Non-Supersymmetric 5d Fixed Point?

Abstract: This talk deals with supersymmetry breaking deformations of the N=1 supersymmetric 5d fixed point known as E1, the UV completion of SU(2) super-Yang-Mills theory. The phases of the non-supersymmetric theory can be characterized by Chern-Simons terms involving background U(1) gauge fields, allowing us to identify a phase transition at strong coupling. It is proposed that this may signify the emergence of a non-trivial, non-supersymmetric CFT in 4+1 dimensions.
