  • Orbifolds of M-strings 

    Haghighat, Babak; Kozçaz, Can; Lockhart, Guglielmo; Vafa, Cumrun (American Physical Society, 2014)
  • BPS degeneracies and superconformal index in diverse dimensions 

    Iqbal, Amer; Vafa, Cumrun (American Physical Society, 2014)
    We present a unifying theme relating BPS partition functions and superconformal indices. In the case with complex supersymmetry central charges (as in N = 2 in d = 4 and N = (2, 2) in d = 2), the known results can be ...
  • Stringy wave function for an S 3 cosmology 

    Gukov, Sergei; Saraikin, Kirill; Vafa, Cumrun (American Physical Society, 2006)
    Using the recent observations of the relation between the Hartle-Hawking wave function and the topological string partition function, we propose a wave function for scalar metric fluctuations on S-3 embedded in a Calabi-Yau ...
