Abstract :

Correlation numbers computed for a two-dimensional CFT called Liouville theory are known to be equal to partition functions of N = 2 gauge theories on four-dimensional manifolds. This relationship is known as the AGT correspondence. After summarizing some general notions regarding rigid supersymmetry on curved manifolds, and supersymmetric localization, I will outline how the AGT correspondence extends to N = 2 gauge theories defined on a non-orientable manifold like RP^4 and a manifold-with-boundary hemi-S^4.
