Event Details

In this talk we will discuss how to classify (up to discrete identifications) all rigid ``4D N=2`` supersymmetric backgrounds in both Lorentzian and Euclidean signatures that preserve eight real supercharges. These include backgrounds such as warped ``S_3×R``, warped ``AdS_3×R``, and ``AdS_2×S^2``, as well as some more exotic geometries. I will also address how to construct all supersymmetric two-derivative actions involving hypermultiplets and vector multiplets in these backgrounds.
