Superconformal field theories (SCFTs) in dimensions greater than 4 have become an integral part in the general understanding of quantum field theory, with many interesting implications in lower dimensions. They are hard to define using traditional methods, but can be engineered in string theory. Recently, a large class of AdS/CFT dualities has been constructed for five-dimensional SCFTs, which further supports their existence and allows for quantitative studies. We confront these dualities with a decisive test. We obtain the partition functions and central charges in gauge theory deformations of the SCFTs and extrapolate the results to the conformal fixed points. In the appropriate large N limits, this precisely matches the AdS/CFT predictions, providing strong support for the proposed dualities.

O'Connor (2017) illustrates the importance of accurately characterizing how measurement precision impacts effect size inference. As he demonstrates, attenuation of correlations can be much greater tha...
We introduce network science as a framework for studying the string landscape. Two large networks of string geometries are constructed, where nodes are extra-dimensional six-manifolds and edges repres...
Recent developments in string compactifications demonstrate obstructions to the simplest constructions of low energy cosmologies with positive vacuum energy. The existence of obstacles to creating sca...
We extend the concept of strange correlators, defined for symmetry-protected phases in You et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 112, 247202 (2014)PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.112.247202], to topological ph...
Full-order partial correlation, a fundamental approach for network reconstruction, e.g. in the context of gene regulation, relies on the precision matrix (the inverse of the covariance matrix) as an i...

A psychological theory based on dimensions or categories used by a given person in describing or explaining the personality and behavior of others or of himself. The basic idea is that different people will use consistently different categories. The theory was formulated in the fifties by George Kelly. Two tests devised by him are the role construct repertory test and the repertory grid test. (From Stuart Sutherland, The International Dictionary of Psychology, 1989)
A precision device used for attaching a fixed or removable partial denture to the crown of an abutment tooth or a restoration. One type is the intracoronal attachment and the other type is the extracoronal attachment. It consists of a female portion within the coronal portion of the crown of an abutment and a fitted male portion attached to the denture proper. (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p85; from Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed, p264)
Metal devices for fastening together two or more parts of dental prostheses for stabilizing or retaining them by attachment to abutment teeth. For a precision attachment for a partial denture DENTURE PRECISION ATTACHMENT is available.
An interdisciplinary study dealing with the transmission of messages or signals, or the communication of information. Information theory does not directly deal with meaning or content, but with physical representations that have meaning or content. It overlaps considerably with communication theory and CYBERNETICS.
Test for cell-mediated antitumor immunity and related serum blocking factors based on the finding that leukocytes from cancer patients, but not from controls, when mixed in vitro with antigenic extracts of tumors of the same histological type, undergo a diminution in their normal adherence to glass surfaces. Sera from tumor-bearing patients block the LAI reaction of their own leukocytes or those of other patients with the same type of tumor.
