Intersecting Surface Defects and Two-Dimensional CFT

20 Aug 2020 Gomis Jaume Floch Bruno Le Pan Yiwen Peelaers Wolfger

We initiate the study of intersecting surface operators/defects in four-dimensional quantum field theories (QFTs). We characterize these defects by coupled 4d/2d/0d theories constructed by coupling the degrees of freedom localized at a point and on intersecting surfaces in spacetime to each other and to the four-dimensional QFT...
