Double quiver gauge theory and nearly Kähler flux compactifications

A bstractWe consider G-equivariant dimensional reduction of Yang-Mills theory with torsion on manifolds of the form M × G/H where M is a smooth manifold, and G/H is a compact six-dimensional

We consider the twistor space P ∼= R×CP 1 of R with a non-integrable almost complex structure J such that the canonical bundle of the almost complex manifold (P,J ) is trivial. It is shown that J

Yang-Mills fields in flux compactifications on homogeneous manifolds with SU(4)-structure

A bstractThe Spin(7)-instanton equations are natural BPS equations for instantons on 8-manifolds. We study these equations on nearly Kähler and Calabi-Yau torsion manifolds of the form M × G/H, with

Finite-action solutions of Yang-Mills equations on de Sitter dS4 and anti-de Sitter AdS4 spaces

A bstractWe consider pure SU(2) Yang-Mills theory on four-dimensional de Sitter dS4 and anti-de Sitter AdS4 spaces and construct various solutions to the Yang-Mills equations. On de Sitter space we

Deformations of Nearly Kähler Instantons

We formulate the deformation theory for instantons on nearly Kähler six-manifolds using spinors and Dirac operators. Using this framework we identify the space of deformations of an irreducible

Six-Dimensional Superconformal Field Theories from Principal 3-Bundles over Twistor Space

We construct manifestly superconformal field theories in six dimensions which contain a non-Abelian tensor multiplet. In particular, we show how principal 3-bundles over a suitable twistor space

Gravity and induced matter on nearly Kähler manifolds

We show that the conservation of energy–momentum tensor of a gravitational model with Einstein–Hilbert like action on a nearly Kahler manifold with the scalar curvature of a curvature-like tensor, is

Connections on a non-symmetric (generalized) Riemannian manifold and gravity

Connections with (skew-symmetric) torsion on a non-symmetric Riemannian manifold satisfying the Einstein metricity condition (non-symmetric gravitation theory (NGT) with torsion) are considered. It



Gauge theory and calibrated geometry, I

The geometry of submanifolds is intimately related to the theory of functions and vector bundles. It has been of fundamental importance to find out how those two objects interact in many geometric

An intrinsic volume functional on almost complex 6-manifolds and nearly Kähler geometry

Let (M, I) be an almost complex 6-manifold. The obstruction to the integrability of almost complex structure N:3 0,1 (M)!3 2,0 (M) (the so-called Nijenhuis tensor) maps one 3-dimensional bundle to

SU(3)-equivariant quiver gauge theories and nonabelian vortices

We consider SU(3)-equivariant dimensional reduction of Yang-Mills theory on Kahler manifolds of the form M × SU(3)/H, with H = SU(2) × U(1) or H = U(1) × U(1). The induced rank two quiver gauge


The work of R. Penrose has shown the deep relationship between the conformal structure of Minkowski space and the complex geometry of lines in projective three-space. This transformation applies to a

Rank two quiver gauge theory, graded connections and noncommutative vortices

We consider equivariant dimensional reduction of Yang-Mills theory on K?hler manifolds of the form M ? P1 ? P1. This induces a rank two quiver gauge theory on M which can be formulated as a

The topological B-model on a mini-supertwistor space and supersymmetric Bogomolny monopole equations

In the recent paper [1], it was argued that the open topological B-model whose target space is a complex (2|4)-dimensional mini-supertwistor space with D3- and D1-branes added corresponds to a super

Remarks on the geometry of almost complex 6-manifolds

This article is mostly a writeup of two talks, the first [3] given in the Besse Seminar at the Ecole Polytechnique in 1998 and the second [4] given at the 2000 International Congress on Differential

New half supersymmetric solutions of the heterotic string

We describe all supersymmetric solutions of the heterotic string which preserve eight supersymmetries and show that these are distinguished by the holonomy, , of the connection, , with skew-symmetric
