abstract: 

We propose graphs, the Combined Fiber Diagrams (CFD), to characterize all 5d superconformal field theories (SCFTs) that arise as -reductions of 6d SCFTs. Transitions between CFDs encode mass deformations that trigger RG-flows between SCFTs. They provide a combinatorial classification of all such 5d SCFTs and encode physical information about the strongly coupled theories, like the superconformal flavor symmetry and BPS states. We consistently reproduce known results, but more importantly predict new theories and strong coupling effects in 5d SCFTs.
