Seminar Oct 19: Sergio Benvenuti

On October 19 we will have a seminar by

Sergio Benvenuti (INFN Trieste – SISSA)

Title: Dualities from deconfinement

We prove dualities involving four dimensional N=1 gauge theories with rank-2 matter. We assume only elementary dualities, that is Seiberg and Intriligator-Pouliot dualities. The strategy is to use multiple times elementary S-confining dualities and elementary electric-magnetic dualities, until the desired dual theory is reached. As a first example, we derive the Wess-Zumino description of all S-confining single node quivers with rank-2 matter. As a second example, we derive a ‘fully deconfined’ dual of USp(2N) with an antisymmetric and 2F fundamental fields, then use it to prove a self-duality valid at F=4. These results are based on ongoing work with Stéphane Bajeot, and uplift 3d results obtained with Ivan Garozzo and Gabriele Lo Monaco.
