Mr Shota Fujiwara (Tokyo Inst. of Tech.)


We study the superconformal index of the 6d (2,0) theory by using the AdS/CFT correspondence. It is well known that on the gravity side at the large N limit, the index can be calculated from the contribution of the Kaluza Klein modes. For the AdS_5/CFT_4 cases, recent works show that in addition to Kaluza Klein modes, D3-branes wrapped on the compact space contribute to the index at the finite N region. In this talk we apply this method to M-theory on AdS_7×S^4 and propose the superconformal index of the 6d (2,0) theory. Namely, we calculate the index of the 6d (2,0) theory from dual gravity side at finite N by considering the M2-branes wrapped on compact space S^4. We also discuss the validity of the results obtained from our proposing formula.
