|TITLE||5d gauge theories from the epsilon expansion|
The seminar is based on: https://arxiv.org/abs/2107.00342 . I will discuss new evidence -from the 4+epsilon expansion- of the existence of interacting CFTs in 5d that provide UV completions of non-abelian gauge theories. The method used is Padé-Borel resummation and extrapolation of the five-loop perturbative results.
