In this paper we study the large N solution to matrix models describing the partition functions of 3d supersymmetric gauge theories on S3. The model we focus on has a single U(N) gauge group and fundamental fields, whose number scales with N, also known as the Veneziano limit. The novel point in our model is our choice of masses for the fundamental fields. Instead of vanishing or fixed masses, we consider a linear distribution. We show that the model can still be solved by standard large N…

Lectures on localization and matrix models in supersymmetric Chern–Simons-matter theories

In these lectures, I give a pedagogical presentation of some of the recent progress in supersymmetric Chern–Simons-matter theories, coming from the use of localization and matrix model techniques.

Notes on superconformal Chern-Simons-Matter theories

The three dimensional = 2 supersymmetric Chern-Simons theory coupled to matter fields, possibly deformed by a superpotential, give rise to a large class of exactly conformal theories with Lagrangian

Prepared for submission to JHEP N = 2 gauge theories and quantum phases

The partition function of general N = 2 supersymmetric SU(2) YangMills theories on a four-sphere localizes to a matrix integral. We show that in the decompactification limit, and in a certain regime,

Exact results for Wilson loops in superconformal Chern-Simons theories with matter

We use localization techniques to compute the expectation values of supersymmetric Wilson loops in Chern-Simons theories with matter. We find the path-integral reduces to a non-Gaussian matrix model.
