nLab Conformal field theory in four and six dimensions

The article

disucsses in a simplified setup the compactification of the 6d (2,0)-superconformal QFT on a Riemann surface to 4-dimensional (super) Yang-Mills theory, and how this geometrically explains the S-duality/electric-magnetic duality of this theory.
