Abstract:

We show that the resolution of moduli space of ideal instantons parameterizes the instantons on noncommutative ℝ4. This moduli space appears to be the Higgs branch of the theory of kD0-branes bound to ND4-branes by the expectation value of the B field. It also appears as a regularized version of the target space of supersymmetric quantum mechanics arising in the light cone description of (2,0) superconformal theories in six dimensions.
