We compute the Nekrasov partition function of gauge theories on the\r\n(resolved) toric singularities C^2/\\Gamma in terms of blow-up formulae. We\r\ndiscuss the expansion of the partition function in the \\epsilon_1,\\epsilon_2\r\n\\to 0 limit along with its modular properties and how to derive them from the\r\nM-theory perspective. On the two-dimensional conformal field theory side, our\r\nresults can be interpreted in terms of representations of the direct sum of\r\nHeisenberg plus W_N-algebrae with suitable central charges, which can be\r\ncomputed from the fan of the resolved toric variety.We provide a check of this\r\ncorrespondence by computing the central charge of the two-dimensional theory\r\nfrom the anomaly polynomial of M5-brane theory. Upon using the AGT\r\ncorrespondence our results provide a candidate for the conformal blocks and\r\nthree-point functions of a class of the two-dimensional CFTs which includes\r\nparafermionic theories. | |
