  • A note on topological M5-branes and string-fivebrane duality
  • 2008

    • We derive the stability conditions for the M5-brane in topological M-theory using k-symmetry. The non-linearly self-dual 3-form on the world-volume is necessarily non-vanishing, as is the case also for the 2-form field strengths on coisotropic branes in topological string theory. It is demonstrated that the self-duality is consistent with the stability conditions, which are solved locally in terms of a tensor in the representation 6 of SU(3) subset of G(2). The double dimensional reduction of the M5-brane is the D4-brane, and its direct reduction is an NS5-brane. We show that the equation of motion for the 3-form on the NS5-brane wrapping a Calabi-Yau space is exactly the Kodaira-Spencer equation, providing support for a string-fivebrane duality in topological string theory.

  • Aspects of higher curvature terms and U-duality
  • 2007
  • Ingår i: Classical and Quantum Gravity. - 0264-9381. ; 25:9
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • We discuss various aspects of dimensional reduction of gravity with theEinstein-Hilbert action supplemented by a lowest order deformation formed asthe Riemann tensor raised to powers two, three or four. In the case of R^2 wegive an explicit expression, and discuss the possibility of extended cosetsymmetries, especially SL(n+1,Z) for reduction on an n-torus to threedimensions. Then we start an investigation of the dimensional reduction of R^3and R^4 by calculating some terms relevant for the coset formulation, aiming inparticular towards E_8(8)/(Spin(16)/Z_2) in three dimensions and aninvestigation of the derivative structure. We emphasise some issues concerningthe need for the introduction of non-scalar automorphic forms in order torealise certain expected enhanced symmetries.

  • Aspects of Wrapped Branes in String and M-Theory
  • 2009
  • Doktorsavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • This thesis consists of an introductory text together with five appended research papers. The Ariadne's thread through the whole thesis is various effects coming from high-dimensional p-branes in various subsectors of string and M-theory.The low energy effective actions in string and M-theory consists of a classical supergravity together with quantum corrections. In particular the non-perturbative correction terms arise from instanton effects, which are interpreted as p-branes wrapping supersymmetric cycles. The general structure of the full effective action is the result of a complicated interplay between supersymmetry and U-duality. Requiring the action to be invariant under U-duality leads to mathematical functions called automorphic forms. Both perturbative and non-perturbative corrections seem to be captured by these functions. The U-duality groups can be found by analyzing the algebraic structures of the moduli space after toroidal compactification. Using this line of thinking, some simple examples of higher order derivative corrections in pure gravity are investigated.Compactification on manifolds with special holonomy is also discussed in this thesis, with focus on the resulting moduli spaces. Certain quantum corrections to type IIA string theory compactified on a rigid Calabi-Yau threefold are analyzed.Manifolds with special holonomy constitute target spaces of the topological subsectors in string and M-theory. The low energy effective action of these theories consists of a classical contribution from a form theory of gravity, which receives quantum corrections from branes wrapping supersymmetric cycles in the target space. In particular the dynamics of the M2- and M5-branes are discussed in the context of a topological version of M-theory.

  • Kac–moody groups and automorphic forms in low dimensional supergravity theories
  • 2017
  • Ingår i: Lie Algebras, Vertex Operator Algebras, and Related Topics. - 9781470426668 ; , s. 29-40
  • Bokkapitel (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Kac–Moody groups G over ? have been conjectured to occur as symmetry groups of supergravity theories dimensionally reduced to dimensions less than 3, and their integral forms G(?) conjecturally encode quantized symmetries. In this review paper, we briefly introduce the conjectural symmetries of Kac–Moody groups in supergravity as well as the known evidence for these conjectures. We describe constructions of Kac–Moody groups over ? and ? using certain choices of fundamental modules that are considered to have physical relevance. Eisenstein series on certain finite dimensional algebraic groups are known to encode quantum corrections in the low energy limit of superstring theories. We describe briefly how the construction of Eisenstein series extends to Kac–Moody groups. The constant terms of Eisenstein series on E9, E10 and E11 are predicted to encode perturbative string theory corrections.

  • M5-branes, toric diagrams and gauge theory duality
  • 2012
  • Ingår i: Journal of High Energy Physics. - 1029-8479 .- 1126-6708.
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • In this article we explore the duality between the low energy effective theory of five-dimensional N = 1 SU(N)(M-1) and SU(M)(N-1) linear quiver gauge theories compactified on S-1. The theories we study are the five-dimensional uplifts of four-dimensional superconformal linear quivers. We study this duality by comparing the Seiberg-Witten curves and the Nekrasov partition functions of the two dual theories. The Seiberg-Witten curves are obtained by minimizing the worldvolume of an M5-brane with nontrivial geometry. Nekrasov partition functions are computed using topological string theory. The result of our study is a map between the gauge theory parameters, i.e., Coulomb moduli, masses and UV coupling constants, of the two dual theories. Apart from the obvious physical interest, this duality also leads to compelling mathematical identities. Through the AGTW conjecture these five-dimentional gauge theories are related to q-deformed Liouville and Toda SCFTs in two-dimensions. The duality we study implies the relations between Liouville and Toda correlation functions through the map we derive.

  • Membranes for Topological M-Theory
  • 2005
  • Ingår i: Journal of High Energy Physics.
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • We formulate a theory of topological membranes on manifolds with G_2 holonomy. The BRST charges of the theories are the superspace Killing vectors (the generators of global supersymmetry) on the background with reduced holonomy G_2. In the absence of spinning formulations of supermembranes, the starting point is an N=2 target space supersymmetric membrane in seven euclidean dimensions. The reduction of the holonomy group implies a twisting of the rotations in the tangent bundle of the branes with ``R-symmetry'' rotations in the normal bundle, in contrast to the ordinary spinning formulation of topological strings, where twisting is performed with internal U(1) currents of the N=(2,2) superconformal algebra. The double dimensional reduction on a circle of the topological membrane gives the strings of the topological A-model (a by-product of this reduction is a Green-Schwarz formulation of topological strings). We conclude that the action is BRST-exact modulo topological terms and fermionic equations of motion. We discuss the role of topological membranes in topological M-theory and the relation of our work to recent work by Hitchin and by Dijkgraaf et al.

  • Non-Lagrangian theories from brane junctions
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: Journal of High Energy Physics. - 1029-8479 .- 1126-6708. ; :1, s. Art. no. 175-
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • In this article we use 5-brane junctions to study the 5D T N SCFTs corresponding to the 5D N = 1 uplift of the 4D N = 2 strongly coupled gauge theories, which are obtained by compactifying N M5 branes on a sphere with three full punctures. Even though these theories have no Lagrangian description, by using the 5-brane junctions proposed by Benini, Benvenuti and Tachikawa, we are able to derive their Seiberg-Witten curves and Nekrasov partition functions. We cross-check our results with the 5D super-conformal index proposed by Kim, Kim and Lee. Through the AGTW correspondence, we discuss the relations between 5D superconformal indices and n -point functions of the q -deformed W N Toda theories.

  • Rigid Calabi-Yau threefolds, Picard Eisenstein series and instantons
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Journal of Physics: Conference Series. - 1742-6588 .- 1742-6596. ; 462:1
  • Konferensbidrag (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Type IIA string theory compactified on a rigid Calabi-Yau threefold gives rise to a classical moduli space that carries an isometric action of U(2, 1). Various quantum corrections break this continuous isometry to a discrete subgroup. Focussing on the case where the intermediate Jacobian of the Calabi-Yau admits complex multiplication by the ring of quadratic imaginary integers script O signd, we argue that the remaining quantum duality group is an arithmetic Picard modular group PU(2, 1; script O signd). Based on this proposal we construct an Eisenstein series invariant under this duality group and study its non-Abelian Fourier expansion. This allows the prediction of non-perturbative effects, notably the contribution of D2- and NS5-brane instantons. The present work extends our previous analysis in 0909.4299 which was restricted to the special case of the Gaussian integers script O sign1 = ℤ[i].

  • U-Duality and the Compactified Gauss-Bonnet Term
  • 2007
  • Ingår i: Journal of High Energy Physics.
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • We present the complete toroidal compactification of the Gauss-Bonnet Lagrangian from D dimensions to D-n dimensions. Our goal is to investigate the resulting action from the point of view of the "U-duality" symmetry SL(n+1,R) which is present in the tree-level Lagrangian when D-n=3. The analysis builds upon and extends the investigation of the paper [arXiv:0706.1183], by computing in detail the full structure of the compactified Gauss-Bonnet term, including the contribution from the dilaton exponents. We analyze these exponents using the representation theory of the Lie algebra sl(n+1,R) and determine which representation is the relevant one for quadratic curvature corrections. By interpreting the result of the compactification as a leading term in a large volume expansion of an SL(n+1,Z)-invariant action, we conclude that the overall exponential dilaton factor should not be included in the representation structure. As a consequence, all dilaton exponents correspond to weights of sl(n+1,R), which, nevertheless, remain on the positive side of the root lattice.
