What exactly are the ADE type of (susy) gauge theories? What exactly do we mean, intuitively, by ADE singularities? What are their relation to brane constructions and do you have any references from where one could understand the basics?
I tried to read a little bit of today's paper by Vafa et al. but could not even get the introduction. I would appreciate any information.
