Résumé :
The 2d/4d correspondence relating 2d conformal field theory to 4d gauge theory permits reducing the computation of certain generalized instanton generating functions in gauge theory to the solution of differential equations. In the case of pure N=2 supersymmetric SU(2) gauge theory, the relevant differential equation is the Mathieu equation. The aforementioned “generalized” is reflected in the presence of an expansion parameter epsilon related to the embedding of the gauge theory within string theory. In this talk, we will study the Mathieu equation with exact WKB methods and relate the analysis to non-perturbative effects in epsilon contributing to the instanton generating function.
