# From 3d duality to 2d duality

@article{Aharony2017From3D, title={From 3d duality to 2d duality}, author={Ofer Aharony and Shlomo S. Razamat and Brian Willett}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2017}, volume={2017}, pages={1-63} }

A bstractIn this paper we discuss 3dN$$ \mathcal{N} $$ = 2 supersymmetric gauge theories and their IR dualities when they are compactified on a circle of radius r, and when we take the 2d limit in which r → 0. The 2d limit depends on how the mass parameters are scaled as r → 0, and often vacua become infinitely distant in the 2d limit, leading to a direct sum of different 2d theories. For generic mass parameters, when we take the same limit on both sides of a duality, we obtain 2d dualities…
