11 Instanton corrections in Type IIB Type IIB formulation must be manifestly invariant under S-duality group pert. g s -corrections: instanton corrections: D(-1) D1 D3 D5 NS5 Quantum corrections in type IIB: SL(2,  ) duality -corrections: w.s.inst. Robles-Llana,Roček,Saueressig, Theis,Vandoren ’06 Gopakumar-Vafa invariants of genus zero Twistorial description: S.A.,Saueressig, ’09 requires technique of mock modular forms S.A.,Manschot,Pioline ‘12 from mirror symmetry In the one-instanton approximation the mirror of the type IIA construction is consistent with S-duality manifestly S-duality formulation is unknown S.A.,Banerjee ‘14 using S-duality

12 S-duality in twistor space S.A.,Banerjee ‘14 Non-linear holomorphic representation of SL(2,  ) –duality group on contact transformation Condition for to carry an isometric action of SL(2,  ) Transformation property of the contact bracket The idea: to add all images of the D-instanton contributions under S-duality with a non-vanishing 5-brane charge One must understand how S-duality is realized on twistor space and which constraints it imposes on the twistorial construction

13 Fivebrane instantons NS5-brane charge Compute fivebrane contact Hamiltonians The input: One can evaluate the action on Darboux coordinates and write down the integral equations on twistor lines The contact structure is invariant under full U-duality group ― D5-brane charge Apply SL(2,  ) transformation Encodes fivebrane instanton corrections to all orders of the instanton expansion

14 ● Manifestly S-duality invariant description of D3-instantons ● NS5-brane instantons in the Type IIA picture Can the integrable structure of D-instantons in Type IIA be extended to include NS5-brane corrections? ● Resolution of one-loop singularity ● Resummation of divergent series over brane charges (expected to be regularized by NS5-branes) Open problems = Inclusion of NS5-branes quantum deformation ? quantum dilog ? A-model topological wave function in the real polarization Relation to the topological string wave function THANK YOU!
