Geometric Transitions and N = 1 Quiver Theories

  title={Geometric Transitions and N = 1 Quiver Theories},
  author={Freddy Alexander Cachazo and Sheldon Katz and Cumrun Vafa}
We construct N = 1 supersymmetric theories on worldvolumes of D5 branes wrapped around 2-cycles of threefolds which are AD -E fibrations over a plane. We propose large N duals as geometric transitions involving blowdowns of two cycles and blowups of three-cycles. This yields exact predictions for a large class of N = 1 supersymmetric gauge systems including U (N) gauge theories with two adjoint matter fields deformed by super-potential terms, which arise in AD -E fibered geometries with non… CONTINUE READING
