Monopole operators and the mirror dual of 3d SQCD
by Dr. Simone Giacomelli (ICTP Trieste)
Thursday, 25 January 2018 from to (Europe/Rome)
In this seminar I will discuss monopole operators in the context of supersymmetric gauge theories in three dimensions and the role they play in establishing new infrared dualities. Using then a recently proposed duality for U(N) supersymmetric QCD (SQCD) in three dimensions with monopole superpotential, I will derive the mirror dual description of N=2 SQCD with unitary gauge group, generalizing the known dual description of abelian gauge theories.
