Renormalization group flows from holography supersymmetry and a c theorem

- D. Freedman, S. Gubser, K. Pilch, N. Warner
- Physics
- 3 April 1999

We obtain first order equations that determine a supersymmetric kink solution in fivedimensional N = 8 gauged supergravity. The kink interpolates between an exterior anti-de Sitter region with… Expand

Chiral rings in N = 2 superconformal theories

We investigate the properties of chiral operators in N = 2 superconformal theories. In particular, we study the spectral flow of such models under a one-parameter family of twists generated by the… Expand

Self-dual strings and N = 2 supersymmetric field theory

We show how the Riemann surfaceof N = 2 Yang-Mills field theory arises in type II string compactifications on Calabi-Yau threefolds. The relevant local geometry is given by fibrations of ALE spaces.… Expand

E strings and N=4 topological Yang-Mills theories

- J. Minahan, D. Nemeschansky, C. Vafa, N. Warner
- Physics
- 25 February 1998

We study certain properties of six-dimensional tensionless E-strings (arising from zero size E8 instantons). In particular we show that n E-strings form a bound string which carries an E8level-n… Expand

Compact and non-compact gauged supergravity theories in five dimensions

- M. Günaydin, L. Romans, N. Warner
- Physics
- 4 August 1986

Abstract We give a detailed construction of gauged N = 8 supergravity theories in five dimensions with Yang-Mills gauge groups SO( p , 6− p )( p =0, 1, 2, 3), physical global symmetry SU(1, 1), and… Expand

N=2 supersymmetric RG flows and the IIB dilaton

We show that there is a non-trivial relationship between the dilaton of IIB supergravity, and the coset of scalar fields in five-dimensional, gauged N=8 supergravity. This has important consequences… Expand

An N =2 Supersymmetric Membrane Flow

- R. Corrado, K. Pilch, N. Warner
- Physics
- 25 July 2001

Abstract We find M-theory solutions that are holographic duals of flows of the maximally supersymmetric ( N =8 ) scalar-fermion theory in 2+1 dimensions. In particular, we construct the M-theory… Expand

Bubbling supertubes and foaming black holes

We construct smooth BPS three-charge geometries that resolve the zero-entropy singularity of the U(1)xU(1) invariant black ring. This singularity is resolved by a geometric transition that results in… Expand

Continuous distributions of D3-branes and gauged supergravity

- D. Freedman, S. Gubser, K. Pilch, N. Warner
- Physics
- 24 June 1999

States on the Coulomb branch ofN = 4 super-Yang-Mills theory are studied from the point of view of gauged supergravity in ve dimensions. These supersymmetric solutions provide examples of consistent… Expand

Some New Extrema of the Scalar Potential of Gauged $N=8$ Supergravity

- N. Warner
- Physics
- 25 August 1983

Five new critical points are found for the scalar potential of gauged N = 8 supergravity. These comprise a complete list of all the extrema which induce a symmetry breaking of SO(8) to some smaller… Expand
