Geometric classification of 4d $\mathcal{N}=2$ SCFTs.

Matteo Caorsi, Sergio Cecotti

The classification of 4d $\mathcal{N}=2$ SCFTs boils down to the classification of conical special geometries with closed Reeb orbits (CSG). Under mild assumptions, one shows that the underlying complex space of a CSG is (birational to) an affine cone over a simply-connected $\mathbb{Q}$-factorial log-Fano variety with Hodge numbers $h^{p,q}=\delta_{p,q}$. With some plausible restrictions, this means that the Coulomb branch chiral ring $\mathscr{R}$ is a graded polynomial ring generated by global holomorphic functions $u_i$ of dimension $\Delta_i$. The coarse-grained classification of the CSG consists in listing the (finitely many) dimension $k$-tuples $\{\Delta_1,\Delta_2,\cdots,\Delta_k\}$ which are realized as Coulomb branch dimensions of some rank-$k$ CSG: this is the problem we address in this paper. Our sheaf-theoretical analysis leads to an Universal Dimension Formula for the possible $\{\Delta_1,\cdots,\Delta_k\}

s. For Lagrangian SCFTs the Universal Formula reduces to the fundamental theorem of Springer Theory.

The number $\boldsymbol{N}(k)$ of dimensions allowed in rank $k$ is given by a certain sum of the Erd\"os-Bateman Number-Theoretic function (sequence A070243 in OEIS) so that for large $k$ $ \boldsymbol{N}(k)=\frac{2\,\zeta(2)\,\zeta(3)}{\zeta(6)}\,k^2+o(k^2). $ In the special case $k=2$ our dimension formula reproduces a recent result by Argyres et al.

Class Field Theory implies a subtlety: certain dimension $k$-tuples $\{\Delta_1,\cdots,\Delta_k\}$ are consistent only if supplemented by additional selection rules on the electro-magnetic charges, that is, for a SCFT with these Coulomb dimensions not all charges/fluxes consistent with Dirac quantization are permitted.

We illustrate the various aspects with several examples and perform a number of explicit checks. We include tables of dimensions for the first few $k
