# Instantons, fermions and Chern-Simons terms

@article{Collie2008InstantonsFA, title={Instantons, fermions and Chern-Simons terms}, author={Benjamin Collie and David Tong}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2008}, volume={2008}, pages={015-015} }

In five spacetime dimensions, instantons are finite energy, solitonic particles. We describe the dynamics of these objects in the presence of a Chern-Simons interaction. For U(N) instantons, we show that the 5d Chern-Simons term induces a corresponding Chern-Simons term in the ADHM quantum mechanics. For SU(N) instantons, we provide a description in terms of geodesic motion on the instanton moduli space, modified by the presence of a magnetic field. We show that this magnetic field is equal to…
