Description

In this talk, we show that the elliptic deformation of W-algebra is naturally realized using quiver gauge theory in six dimensions compactified on a torus. This construction is based on the gauge theoretical realization of W-algebra proposed in our previous study [arXiv:1512.08533]. In particular, double quantization of Seiberg-Witten geometry for Γ-quiver gauge theory provides a generating current of W(Γ)-algebra in the free field realization. We also show that the partition function is given by a correlator of the corresponding W(Γ)-algebra, which is equivalent to the AGT relation under the gauge/quiver (base/fibre; spectral) duality. This talk is based on a collaboration with V. Pestun [arXiv:1608.04651]
