Orbifolds by 2-groups and decomposition

Abstract In this paper we study three-dimensional orbifolds by 2-groups with a trivially-acting one-form symmetry group BK. These orbifolds have a global two-form symmetry, and so one expects that

New N = 1 dualities from orientifold transitions — Part II : String Theory —

We present a string theoretical description, given in terms of branes and orientifolds wrapping vanishing cycles, of the dual pairs of gauge theories analyzed in [1]. Based on the resulting

Decomposition in Chern-Simons theories in three dimensions

In this paper we discuss decomposition in the context of three-dimensional Chern-Simons theories. Specifically, we argue that a Chern-Simons theory with a gauged noneffectivelyacting one-form

A bstractWe present a string theoretical description, given in terms of branes and orientifolds wrapping vanishing cycles, of the dual pairs of gauge theories analyzed in [1]. Based on the resulting

Quantization of Fayet-Iliopoulos Parameters in Supergravity

In this short article we discuss quantization of the Fayet-Iliopoulos parameter in supergravity theories. We argue that, in supergravity, the Fayet-Iliopoulos parameter determines a lift of the group

Rigid D6-branes on $T^6/(Z_2 x Z_{2M} x \Omega R)$ with discrete torsion

We give a complete classification of T6/[Z(2)xZ(2M)xOmegaR] orientifolds on factorisable tori and rigid D6-branes on them. The analysis includes the supersymmetry, RR tadpole cancellation and

Real representation theory of finite categorical groups

We introduce the Real representation theory of a finite categorical group, thereby categorifying the Real representation theory of finite groups, as studied by Atiyah--Segal and Karoubi. We

Twisted loop transgression and higher Jandl gerbes over finite groupoids

Given a double cover $\pi: \mathcal{G} \rightarrow \hat{\mathcal{G}}$ of finite groupoids, we explicitly construct twisted loop transgression maps, $\tau_{\pi}$ and $\tau_{\pi}^{ref}$, thereby

On orbifolds with discrete torsion

Type IIB orientifolds with discrete torsion

We consider compact four-dimensional ZN × ZM type IIB orientifolds, for certain values of N and M. We allow the additional feature of discrete torsion and discuss the modification of the consistency

Recent developments in discrete torsion

D-branes and Discrete Torsion

We show that discrete torsion is implemented in a D-brane world-volume theory by using a projective representation of the orbifold point group. We study the example of C 3 / ZZ 2 × ZZ 2 and show that

Orientifolds with discrete torsion

We show how discrete torsion can be implemented in D = 4, = 1 type-IIB orientifolds. Some consistency conditions are found from the closed string and open string spectrum and from tadpole

Analogues of discrete torsion for the M theory three form

In this article we shall outline a derivation of the analogue of discrete torsion for the M-theory three-form potential. We find that some of the differences between orbifold group actions on the C

Discrete torsion in perturbative heterotic string theory

In this paper we analyze discrete torsion in perturbative heterotic string theory. In previous work we have given a purely mathematical explanation of discrete torsion as the choice of orbifold group

Comments on orientifolds without vector structure

We revisit type I compactifications with a Spin(32)/Z2 gauge bundle that admits no vector structure. We elucidate the relation of this Z2 obstruction to discrete B- field flux and to 't Hooft flux
