Event Details

Starting from mirror pairs consisting only of linear (framed A-type) quivers, a wide class of three-dimensional quiver gauge theories with **N=4** supersymmetry, and their mirror duals can be obtained by suitably gauging flavor symmetries. Infinite families of mirror pairs including various quivers of D and E-type and their affine extensions, star-shaped quivers, and quivers with symplectic gauge groups may be generated in this fashion. We demonstrate how partition function on a 3-sphere turns out to be an extremely efficient tool for implementing this gauging procedure as it readily generalizes to arbitrary size of the quiver and arbitrary rank of the gauge group at each node.
