Categories of Line Operators in 3d N=4 Theories
Michael Geracie, UC Davis,

In three dimensions, Coulomb branch chiral algebras involve monopole operators that create and destroy vortices. They may be rigorously defined and computed in terms of equivariant cohomology. In this talk, we will review this and extend the construction to include line operators. We present a computational approach for determining the associated categories in this setting and discuss applications in mirror symmetry.
