Baryon Charges in 4 d Superconformal Field Theories and Their AdS Duals

  title={Baryon Charges in 4 d Superconformal Field Theories and Their AdS Duals},
  author={Ken Intriligator and Brian Wecht},
We consider general aspects of the realization of R and non-R flavor symmetries in the AdS5 ×H5 dual of 4d N = 1 superconformal field theories. We find a general prescription for computing the charges under these symmetries for baryonic operators, which uses only topological information (intersection numbers) on H5. We find and discuss a new correspondence between the nodes of the SCFT quiver diagrams and certain divisors in the associated geometry. We also discuss connections between the non-R… CONTINUE READING
