Abstract

Five-dimensional field theories with exceptional gauge groups are engineered from degenerations of Calabi-Yau threefolds. The structure of the Coulomb branch is analyzed in terms of relative Kähler cones. For low number of flavors, the geometric construction leads to new five-dimensional fixed points.
