I will present the rank \(N\) magnificent four theory, which is the supersymmetric localization of \(U(N)\) super-Yang-Mills theory with matter on a Calabi-Yau fourfold, and conjecture an explicit formula for the partition function \(Z\): it has a free-field representation, and surprisingly it depends on Coulomb and mass parameters in a simple way. Based on joint work with N.Nekrasov.
