TITLE: Hasse diagrams for Symplectic Singularities via Magnetic Quivers

ABSTRACT:
In this lecture I review the construction of a finite Hasse diagram encoding the structure of singularities and symplectic leaves in conic symplectic singularities. This construction uses the concept of magnetic quiver, which is a combinatorial description of certain conic symplectic singularities, and the algorithm known as “quiver subtraction”. I then show how this can be used to gain insight about these spaces, and how this is connected to various effects in classical and quantum physics (Higgs mechanism, structure of the chiral ring, moduli space of strongly coupled SCFTs in 5 and 6 dimensions).
