Aspects of Monopole Operators in N = 6 Chern-Simons Theory

We study local operators of U (N)×U (N) N = 6 Chern-Simons-matter theory including a class of magnetic monopole operators. To take into account the interaction of monopoles and basic fields for large Chern-Simons level k, we consider the appropriate perturbation theory in 1 k which reliably describes small excitations around protected chiral operators. We… (More)
