We study five dimensional AGT correspondence by means of the q-deformed beta-ensemble technique. We provide a special basis of states in the q-deformed CFT Hilbert space consisting of generalized Macdonald polynomials, derive the loop equations for the beta-ensemble and obtain the factorization formulas for the corresponding matrix elements.

out to be a lot more elaborate: in particular the naive deformation of Schur polynomials to
Macdonald polynomials is not enough. In this paper we show that the right basis is in fact
given by the generalization of the Macdonald polynomials MAB depending on two partitions
(i.e. generalized Jack polynomials) were introduced in  and also studied in .
To compute the matrix elements in eq. (1.3) we use the q-deformed version of the
cuts in the DF integrands pulverize into a set of poles, so that the integrals can be taken
by residues. The sum over residues is captured by the Jackson q-integral, which is in fact
a sum of the form
dqzf (z) = (1 q) X qkaf qka =
1 qaa (af (a)).
The matrix elements in this framework are given by the q-deformed Selberg averages
of the generalized Macdonald polynomials:
which provide the recurrence relations for the averages of any symmetric polynomials.
One of our main results is the remarkable factorized formula for the averages of
generalized Macdonald polynomials (4.12). It can be written schematically as
and evidently leads to the AGT conjecture for four-point blocks (1.3). Though we were
not able to obtain a rigorous proof of this formula, we have checked it for several lower
polynomials. This is the only missing step in the proof of the five dimensional AGT
conjecture, however the conceptual picture is already apparent.
Let us clarify the relation between our study and the alternative approach to the AGT
duality proposed in [24, 25]. In these works the sum over residues in the DF integrals
without any basis decomposition was shown to be the sum over pairs of partitions:
qR+ t qR t , qR+ t, qR t ,
miraculously into the Nekrasov partition function
However, this is not the Nekrasov function featuring in the AGT correspondence but a
spectral dual  thereof. One can also notice that the expansion in eq. (1.7) is not in
We therefore have two different expansions of the q-deformed conformal block
connected by the spectral duality. The original expansion in terms of a special basis
corresponds to the AGT dual Nekrasov function and the spectral dual expansion in the
intermediate momentum corresponds to the manifest sum over poles in the DF integrals:
zvect(R+, R )
ZNek( = q2|a, mf, q, t)
Generally the spectral dual Nekrasov functions describe gauge theories with
differNevertheless, the parameters of the theories are reshuffled by the duality, e.g. the dual
with the gauge theories. One can see that the AGT relation is a combination of the explicit
DF expansion [24, 25] and the spectral duality.

Again, the case we consider here is extremely simple: the number of points and the algebra

We will mention a tentative application of this duality for conformal blocks in section 7.
Why do these new duality features become visible only in the five dimensional version
of the AGT correspondence and not in the original one? It turns out the in five dimensions
gauge theory partition function has fine structure, which can be effectively analysed from
the gauge theory.1 The geometry of this manifold is encoded in its toric diagram. For our
case of SU(2) gauge theory with four fundamental hypermultiplets the diagram is shown
in figure 1. The edges of the diagram correspond to the two-cycles in the threefold while
Kahler parameters Qi of these cycles correspond to the gauge theory parameters.
The topological string partition function can be computed using the topological vertex
There are essentially two ways to carry out the sum over partitions in figure 1. One
can cut the diagram vertically, compute the sum over R
explicitly and leave the sum over
A, B in the final answer. This sum over pairs of partitions is nothing but the sum in the
Nekrasov function ZNek. Moreover, each half of the diagram corresponds to the matrix
element in the conformal block expansion (1.2):
However there is one more way to perform the summation: one can cut the diagram
horizontally and do the sums over A and B first. In this way one gets the spectral dual
corresponds to the sum in the DF integral
= qR+ t qR t , qR+ t, qR t 1/2
The spectral duality in this picture is natural and corresponds to taking the mirror image
In section 2 we introduce the generalized Macdonald Hamiltonian, compute its
eigenpolynomials. In section 4 we derive the loop equations for the corresponding q-deformed
section 5 and compare our results to the topological string partition function in section 6.
We present our conclusions in section 7.
Generalized Macdonald polynomials
Generalized Macdonald polynomials are symmetric polynomials in two sets of variables
xi and xi labelled by pairs of partitions Y1, Y2 and depending on an extra parameter
Ding-Iohara coproduct acting on the of the original Macdonald Hamiltonian :2
H1genMY(q1,tY)2 (Q|p, p) = X2 Qa1 X(qYia 1)ti MY(q1,tY)2 (Q|p, p).
Eigenvalues of H1gen are non-degenerate, so the eigenfunctions are uniquely determined. In
practice one finds Macdonald polynomials by solving linear equations for the coefficients
of the polynomial eigenfunctions. One writes a general symmetric polynomial as a linear
Y 0 cY Y 0 pY 0 . Acting with H1gen involves
shifts of pn:
This gives a rational function so it is straightforward to obtain the residues.
The properties of generalized Macdonald functions are analogous to those of generalized
Jack polynomials, though with minor variations.
1. Orthogonality, conjugation and normalization. There is a convenient way to
normalize generalized Macdonald polynomials:
through Macdonald polynomials themselves as follows
MY(q1,tY)2 (Q|p, p) =
mY 1 (p)mY 2 (p)+
with respect to Macdonald scalar product

Sometimes it is more convenient to use a different normalization

MfY~ (p) = GY 2Y 1 Q1
MfY~ (p) = GY 1Y 2 (Q)
a=1,2 (i,j)Y a
a=1,2 (i,j)Y a
where GAB is given in appendix B. This normalization is tailored so that the norms
of the polynomials are given by the vector part of the Nekrasov function:
Notice also that in this normalization generalized Macdonald polynomials depend
polynomially on the parameters Q, q and t.

3. Cauchy completeness identity. Generalized Macdonald polynomials form a complete
basis in the space of symmetric functions in two sets of variables:
zvect(Y~ , Q)
4. Specialization identities. For q 1, t = q
become generalized Jack polynomials M~(q,t)(q2a|pk) J ~()(a|pk). For t = q the
Hamiltonian H1gen turns into a sum of screening factors. Therefore, the eigenfunctions
consistent with the results of [19, 20], where Schur polynomials were found to be the
right basis for the case of t = q.
One has the following reduction to ordinary Macdonald polynomials: MY(q1,tY)2 (Q|0, pk)
donald polynomials on the Weyl vector can also be found and are nicely expressed
through the ordinary Macdonald polynomials:

q-deformed Dotsenko-Fateev integrals
In the Dotsenko-Fateev approach conformal blocks are expressed in terms of multiple
contour integrals of the degenerate field insertion.
What is specific to the q-deformed
case is that these integrals can be taken by residues and reduce to multiple Jackson
qintegrals (1.4). We use the q-integral formalism which turns out to be more convenient
throughout this paper. The four-point conformal block is given by the following integral3

The completeness (2.11) of the generalized Macdonald polynomials can be employed
in the last line of eq. (3.1) and gives the following expansion

of the Selberg average according to eqs. (B.3). To check the AGT correspondence (1.3)
one should therefore check that
hf (x)i =
R dqNx (q,t)(x) QiN=1 xiu Qvk=01(qkxi 1)f (x)
R dqNx (q,t)(x) QiN=1 xiu Qv
and the parameters of the Selberg sum are identified with the gauge theory parameters
with the help of eqs. (B.3). In the next section we develop the loop equations for the
q-deformed beta-ensemble (3.4) in order to check eq. (3.3).
Loop equations for q-deformed beta-ensemble
Let us write down the loop equations for the DF integral. They provide the recurrence
the average of any symmetric function.
One first observes that the q-integral of a total q-derivative is zero
tn 1 qnv
dqz z (1 qzz )g(z) = 0
xi q Y xi txj Y
where f (x) denotes a symmetric polynomial in xi corresponding to the insertion of extra
vertex operators. Eq. (4.2) in this case is valid as a power series in negative powers4 of z.
The q-derivative of the q-Vandermonde is given by
qxixi q,t(x) = q
Y (qxi xj )(txi xj )
j6=i (xi xj ) xi qt xj
Using this expression one can rewrite eq. (4.2) as follows:
* N tN1qu+1(qvxi 1) qxii f (x)
Y txi xj
j6=i xi xj
(xi q)f (x) Y xi txj
= 0, (4.4)
where h. . .i denotes the q-Selberg average. Let us cast this equation into a more convenient
form. We first observe that the sum in eq. (4.4) can be written as a contour integral
powers of xi one expands eq. (4.2) in positive powers of z and obtains the recurrence

where the contour Cx encircles all the points xi. Deforming the contour we pick up the
powers of z and will not affect the recurrence relations for pn, so this term can be safely
dropped. Other residues give

The following simple relation for the negative power sums can be immediately deduced

One can also check that the averages of generalized Macdonald polynomials are given by

This relation gives the proof of the five dimensional AGT conjecture for four-point
conlas (4.12), (4.13) for the q-Selberg averages. In appendix C we sketch some ideas which
might lead to the proof of these identities. We have performed computerized checks of
eqs. (4.12) and (4.13) on the first three levels.
Spectral duality for conformal blocks

Let us examine the q-Selberg integral featuring in the DF representation of the
q-deformed CFT (3.4)

Using the identities from appendix D one immediately obtains a compact expression

m1,+ = a + v + 1 + (N 1),
m1, = a + 1 + N ,
m2, = a + v+ + 2 + N 2,
Since we have proven both horizontal and vertical equalities in eq. (1.9), the diagonal
line should also be true. We therefore obtain a (slightly indirect) proof of the spectral
duality for the SU(2) Nekrasov partition functions. Eventually, this implies that all the
dualities in the diagram (1.10) are valid.
Comparison with topological strings
Firstly we notice that the vertical half of the diagram from figure 1 indeed corresponds

QF = q2a,
Q1 = qm1a,
Q2 = qm2a .
This equality tells us that the vertical half of the toric diagram can be identified with the

It would be interesting to better understand other features of the CFT in the language
of topological strings. In particular, the modular properties of conformal blocks should
be encoded in the topological string partition function. The spectral duality in this case
provides an alternative expansion, which can be used to find the nonperturbative results
(cf. [41, 42]).
Of course extensions of the above approach to the six dimensional gauge theories and to
integrable systems, most interestingly to the double elliptic ones [43, 44], should also be

Macdonald polynomials and Ruijsenaars Hamiltonians
In this appendix we very briefly review some essential properties of the (trigonometric)
Ruijsenaars Hamiltonians and list some useful expressions for them.
Macdonald polynomials are the eigenfunctions of the set of commuting Ruijsenaars
Hamiltonians Hk, which can be thought of as a maximal commutative subalgebra inside
the Ding-Iohara algebra :
HkMY = ek
where ek is the elementary symmetric polynomial of N variables and

1i1<...<ikN a=1 j6=i1...ik
Note that for generic q and t the spectrum of H1 is non-degenerate and no higher Hk are
needed to solve for the eigenfunctions. However, we give some expressions for higher Hk
for the sake of completeness.
Let us derive a compact expression for Ruijsenaars Hamiltonians acting on symmetric
terms of power sums is given by
The shift operators commute and we get

where all k integrals are taken over the same contour encircling the points xi. The origin
of the t-deformed factorial lies in the useful symmetrization formula

Ruijsenaars Hamiltonians and loop equations
Let us rewrite the loop equations (4.4) in terms of the Ruijsenaars Hamiltonian (A.2).
We first write down a useful identity:
i=1 z xi j6=i xi xj
Y txi xj =
(1 t)z 1
which is proven by expanding the right hand side as a sum over poles in z.
Using eq. (C.1), one can rewrite eq. (4.4) as follows
n1 qn 1
f (x) qz(1 t) j=1
pn f (x)+
where H1 is the first Ruijsenaars Hamiltonian.9 The expansion of eq. (C.2) in negative
of any symmetric polynomials in xi. In fact, only two of the infinite family of constrains are
needed. Indeed, the Virasoro generators Ln with positive n can be obtained by commuting
L1 and L2. The same holds for the q-deformed case. We may therefore consider only the
tN1qu+vH1f (x) +
[H1, p1] f (x) +
f (x) q1p1f (x) = 0, (C.3)
For f (x) a Macdonald polynomial the Hamiltonian H1 acts diagonally. However
multiplication with pn produces a sum over multiple Macdonald polynomials. To see this one
should use the Pieri idenity:
where the sum is over diagrams W such that the skew diagram W \Y is a horizontal strip
(i.e. there are no more then one box belonging to each column) of k boxes; CW \Y (resp.
RW \Y ) is the set of columns (resp. rows) intersecting W \Y and
completely in terms of the averages of Macdonald polynomials. We are sure that one can
obtain a proof of the identities (4.9), (4.10), (4.12), (4.13) along these lines, though we
were not able to find it.
