Surface defects, the superconformal index and q-deformed Yang-Mills.

Alday, Luis F. and Bullimore, Mathew and Fluder, Martin and Hollands, Lotte (2013) 'Surface defects, the superconformal index and q-deformed Yang-Mills.', Journal of high energy physics., 2013 (10). 018.

Abstract

Recently a prescription to compute the four-dimensional N = 2 superconformal index in the presence of certain BPS surface defects has been given. These surface defects are labelled by symmetric representations of SU(N). In the present paper we give a prescription to compute the superconformal index in the presence of surface defects labelled by arbitrary representations of SU(N). Furthermore, we extend the dictionary between the N =2superconformalSchur-indexandcorrelatorsofq-deformedYang-Millstoincorporate such surface defects.
