- 3d N=2 gauge theories, Seifert geometry and fibering operators

I will give an overview of recent results on three-dimensional N=2 supersymmetric gauge theories placed on arbitrary half-BPS geometries. In particular, I will explain an explicit computation of the supersymmetric partition function on any Seifert three-manifold; such manifolds can have very intricate and interesting topology (for instance, a nice example is the PoincarĂ© sphere) and can provide new interesting observables in 3d SCFTs. I will also discuss to which extent these results exhibit a generalisation of the 3d TQFT structure of Chern-Simons theory to non-topological (but supersymmetric) theories.
