Title: 4d SCFTs from negative-degree line bundles

Abstract

We compose 4d $$\mathcal{N}$$ =1 quantum field theories by compactifying the (2,0) theories on a Riemann surface with genus g and n punctures, where the normal bundle decomposes into a sum of two line bundles with possibly negative degrees p and q. Not long ago, the only available field-theoretic constructions required the line bundle degrees to be nonnegative, although supergravity solutions were constructed in the literature for the zero-puncture case for all p and q. Here, we provide field-theoretic constructions and computations of the central charges of 4d $$\mathcal{N}$$=1 SCFTs that are the IR limit of M5-branes wrapping a surface with general p or q negative, for general genus g and number of maximal punctures n.
