The moduli space of vacua of $$ \mathcal{N}=2 $$ class $$ \mathcal{S} $$ theories
We develop a systematic method to describe the moduli space of vacua of four dimensional N=2 class S theories including Coulomb branch, Higgs branch and mixed branches. In particular, we determine the Higgs and mixed branch roots, and the dimensions of the Coulomb and Higgs components of mixed branches. They are derived by using generalized Hitchinâ€™s equations obtained from twisted compactification of 5d maximal SuperYangMills, with local degrees of freedom at punctures given by (nilpotent) orbits. The crucial thing is the holomorphic factorization of the SeibergWitten curve and reduction of singularity at punctures. We illustrate our method by many examples including N=2 SQCD, T N theory and ArgyresDouglas theories.
