Title: Nekrasov conjecture for toric varieties
Speaker: Elizabeth Gasparim
Speaker Info: University of Edinburgh
Brief Description:
Special Note:

Nekrasov conjecture predicts a relation between the N=2 SUSY gauge theory partition function and the SW prepotential. This conjecture was proven for instantons on R4 by Nekrasov-Okounkov, Nakajima-Yoshioka, and Braverman-Etingof. I will report on joint work with Melissa Liu, where we prove the conjecture for instantons on toric surfaces.
