The global anomalies of (2,0) superconformal field theories in six dimensions


Monnier, Samuel (2014). The global anomalies of (2,0) superconformal field theories in six dimensions. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2014(9):88.

Abstract

We compute the global gauge and gravitational anomalies of the A-type (2,0) superconformal quantum field theories in six dimensions, and conjecture a formula valid for the D- and E-type theories. We show that the anomaly contains terms that do not contribute to the local anomaly but that are crucial for the consistency of the global anomaly. A side result is an intuitive picture for the appearance of Hopf-Wess-Zumino terms on the Coulomb branch of the (2,0) theories.
