Dynamical Abelianization and anomalies in chiral gauge theories

  title={Dynamical Abelianization and anomalies in chiral gauge theories},
  author={Stefano Bolognesi and Kenichi Konishi and Andrea Luzio},
We explore the idea that in some class of strongly-coupled chiral SU ( N ) gauge theories the infrared dynamics might be characterized by a bifermion condensate in the adjoint representation of the color gauge group. As an illustration, in this work we revisit an SU ( N ) chiral gauge theory with Weyl fermions in a symmetric ( ψ ) and anti-antisymmetric ( χ ) tensor representations, together with eight fermions in the anti-fundamental representations ( η ), which we called ψχη model in the…

Symmetry TFTs for 3d QFTs from M-theory

We derive the Symmetry Topological Field Theories (SymTFTs) for 3d supersymmetric quantum field theories (QFTs) constructed in M-theory either via geometric engineering or holography. These 4d

Disconnected 0-Form and 2-Group Symmetries

Quantum field theories can have both continuous and finite 0-form symmetries. We study global symmetry structures that arise when both kinds of 0-form symmetries are present. The global structure



Probing the dynamics of chiral SU(N) gauge theories via generalized anomalies

We study symmetries and dynamics of chiral SU(N) gauge theories with matter Weyl fermions in a two-index symmetric (ψ) or anti-symmetric tensor (χ) representation, together with N ± 4+ p fermions in

New anomalies, TQFTs, and confinement in bosonic chiral gauge theories

Abstract We study a class of 4-dimensional SU(N) chiral gauge theories with fermions in the 2-index symmetric and antisymmetric representations and classify their infrared phases. The choice N = 4ℤ

Phases of chiral gauge theories

We discuss the behavior of two non-supersymmetric chiral SU(N) gauge theories, involving fermions in the symmetric and antisymmetric two-index tensor representations respectively. In addition to

Strong anomaly and phases of chiral gauge theories

We present a simple argument which seems to favor, when applied to a large class of strongly-coupled chiral gauge theories, a dynamical-Higgs-phase scenario, characterized by certain bifermion

Dynamics and symmetries in chiral SU(N) gauge theories

Dynamics and symmetry realization in various chiral gauge theories in four dimensions are investigated, generalizing a recent work by Shifman and the present authors, by relying on the standard ’t

Dynamics from symmetries in chiral SU(N) gauge theories

The symmetries and dynamics of simple chiral $SU(N)$ gauge theories, with matter Weyl fermions in a two-index symmetric tensor and $N+4$ anti-fundamental representations, are examined, by taking

Patterns of symmetry breaking in chiral QCD

We consider $SU(N)$ Yang-Mills theory with massless chiral fermions in a complex representation of the gauge group. The main emphasis is on the so-called hybrid psi-chi-eta model. The possible

Yang-Mills theories with chiral matter at strong coupling

Strong coupling dynamics of Yang-Mills theories with chiral fermion content remained largely elusive despite much effort over the years. In this work, we propose a dynamical framework in which we can

’t Hooft anomaly matching condition and chiral symmetry breaking without bilinear condensate

A bstractWe explore 4-dimensional SU(N) gauge theory with a Weyl fermion in an irreducible self-conjugate representation. This theory, in general, has a discrete chiral symmetry. We use ’t Hooft

Anomaly constraints on deconfinement and chiral phase transition

We study constraints on thermal phase transitions of ${\rm SU}(N_c)$ gauge theories by using the 't Hooft anomaly involving the center symmetry and chiral symmetry. We consider two cases of massless
