# Compactifications of 5d SCFTs with a twist

Journal of High Energy Physics, Jan 2017

We study the compactification of 5d SCFTs to 4d on a circle with a twist in a discrete global symmetry element of these SCFTs. We present evidence that this leads to various 4d $\mathcal{N}$ = 2 isolated SCFTs. These include many known theories as well as seemingly new ones. The known theories include the recently discovered rank 1 SU(4) SCFT and its mass deformations. One application of the new SCFTs is in the dual descriptions of the 4d gauge theory SU(N ) + 1S + (N − 2)F . Also interesting is the appearance of a theory with rank 1 and F 4 global symmetry.
