Abstract

I will first summarize recent exact localization computations of supersymmetric gauge theories, and then discuss curious connections between SUSY/non-SUSY theories coming from 6d (2,0) theories. I particular, I will focus on our recent proposal relating 3d N=2 theories and 3d SL(2,R) Chern-Simons theories (or more mathematically, geometry of 3-manifolds).
