@article{Chester2017MonopoleOI, title={Monopole operators in U(1) Chern-Simons-matter theories}, author={Shai M. Chester and Luca V. Iliesiu and M{\'a}rk Mezei and Silviu S. Pufu}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2017}, volume={2018}, pages={1-58} }

A bstractWe study monopole operators at the infrared fixed points of U(1) Chern-Simons-matter theories (QED3, scalar QED3, N=1$$ \mathcal{N}=1 $$ SQED3, and N=2$$ \mathcal{N}=2 $$ SQED3) with N matter flavors and Chern-Simons level k. We work in the limit where both N and k are taken to be large with κ = k/N fixed. In this limit, we extract information about the low-lying spectrum of monopole operators from evaluating the S2 × S1 partition function in the sector where the S2 is threaded by…
