Talk Title: "3-fold canonical singularity and  5d N=1 SCFT"

Abstract:

We conjecture that M theory on 3-fold canonical singularity defines a 5d N=1 SCFT. Various physical quantities such as flavor symmetry, Coulomb branch structure and prepotential, etc. are computed using the geometry of singularity.
