We introduce some (anti-) M/D-branes through turning on the corresponding field strengths of the 11- and 10-dimensional supergravity theories over $$\hbox {AdS}_4 \times M^{7|6}$$AdS4×M7|6 spaces, where we use $$S^7/Z_k$$S7/Zk and $$CP^3$$CP3 for the internal spaces. Indeed, when we add M2/D2-branes on the same directions with the near horizon branes of the Aharony–Bergman–Jafferis–Maldacena model, all symmetries and supersymmetries are preserved trivially. In this case, we obtain a localized… Expand
Massive (pesudo) scalars in AdS4, SO(4) invariant solutions and holography
Abstract.We include a new 7-form ansatz in 11-dimensional supergravity over $AdS_{4}\times S^{7}/Z_{k}$AdS4×S7/Zk when the internal space is considered as a U(1) bundle on CP3. After a generalExpand
Dual Localized Objects From M-Branes Over AdS_4 x S^7/Z_k
We consider a few ansatzs for the four and seven forms of 11-dimensional supergravity over AdS_4 x S^7/Z_k while try to keep the geometry unchanged. From the 4-form equations, we arrive at someExpand
A Truncation of 11‐Dimensional Supergravity for Fubini‐Like Instantons in AdS4/CFT3
From a consistent Kaluza-Klein truncation of 11-dimensional supergravity over AdS_4 x CP^3 x S^1/Z_k, with a general 4-form ansatz, we arrive at a set of equations and solutions for the includedExpand
Non-Minimally Coupled Pseudoscalars in AdS 4 for Instantons in CFT 3
For the 11-dimensional supergravity over AdS4 × S 7 /Zk, beginning with a general 4-from ansatz and the main geometry unchanged, we get a tower of massive and tachyonic pseudoscalars. Indeed, theExpand
Instantons in AdS$_4$ From (anti)Membranes Wrapping $S^7$ To Bose-Fermi Duality in CFT$_3$'s
We present new SO(4)-invariant and non-supersymmetric instanton solutions for the conformally coupled m^2=-2 and massive m^2=+4 (pseudo)scalars arising from a consistent truncation of 11-dimensionalExpand
Solutions For Scalar Equations in AdS_4 with Adomian Method and Boundary CFT_3 Duals
For a nonlinear partial differential equation for (pseudo)scalars in the bulk of Euclidean AdS_4, arising from a truncation of 11-dimensional supergravity over AdS_4 x S^7/Z_k, we use math tools andExpand


New Instantons in AdS 4 /CFT 3 from D4-Branes Wrapping Some of CP 3
With use of a 6-form field strength of ten-dimensional type IIA supergravity over AdS4× CP 3 , when S 7 /Zk is considered as a S 1 Hopf fibration on CP 3 , we earn a fully localized solution in theExpand
Higgsing M2 to D2 with gravity: $ \mathcal{N} = 6 $ chiral supergravity from topologically gauged ABJM theory
We present the higgsing of three-dimensional $ \mathcal{N} = 6 $ superconformal ABJM type theories coupled to conformal supergravity, so called topologically gauged ABJM theory, thus providing aExpand
M theory on AdSp×S11−p and superconformal field theories
We study the large N limit of the interacting superconformal field theories associated with N M5 branes or M2 branes using the recently proposed relation between these theories and M theory on AdSExpand
N=6 superconformal Chern-Simons-matter theories, M2-branes and their gravity duals
We construct three dimensional Chern-Simons-matter theories with gauge groups U(N) × U(N) and SU(N) × SU(N) which have explicit = 6 superconformal symmetry. Using brane constructions we argue thatExpand
Ads/CFT correspondence and symmetry breaking
Abstract We study, using the dual AdS description, the vacua of field theories where some of the gauge symmetry is broken by expectation values of scalar fields. In such vacua, operators built out ofExpand
Dual instantons in antimembranes theory
We introduce two ansatzs for the 3-form potential of Euclidean 11d supergravity on skew-whiffed AdS{sub 4}xS{sup 7} background which results in two scalar modes with m{sup 2}=-2 on AdS{sub 4}. BeingExpand
The criterion for vacuum stability in Kaluza-Klein supergravity
Abstract We prove that in the spectrum of the d = 4 theory obtained by Freund-Rubin compactification of d = 11 superconductivity, only fields of spin 0 + can give rise to classical instabilities. TheExpand
M2-M5 systems in = 6 Chern-Simons theory
We study two aspects of M5-branes in N = 6 U(N) × U(N) Chern-Simons gauge theory. We first examine multiple M2-branes ending on a M5-brane. We study Basu-Harvey type cubic equations, fuzzy funnelExpand
Three-algebras and N=6 Chern-Simons gauge theories
We derive the general form for a three-dimensional scale-invariant field theory with $\mathcal{N}=6$ supersymmetry, $SU(4)$ R-symmetry and a $U(1)$ global symmetry. The results can be written inExpand
Superconformal Chern-Simons Theories and AdS(4)/CFT(3) Correspondence
We discuss the N = 2 superspace formulation of the N = 8 superconformal Bagger-Lambert-Gustavsson theory, and of the N = 6 superconformal Aharony-Bergman-Jafferis-Maldacena U(N) x U(N) Chern-SimonsExpand
