Phase Structure of D-brane Gauge Theories and Toric Duality

  title={Phase Structure of D-brane Gauge Theories and Toric Duality},
  author={Bo Feng and Amihay Hanany and Yang-Hui He},
Harnessing the unimodular degree of freedom in the definition of any toric diagram, we present a method of constructing inequivalent gauge theories which are world-volume theories of D-branes probing the same toric singularity. These theories are various phases in partial resolution of Abelian orbifolds. As examples, two phases are constructed for both the zeroth Hirzebruch and the second del Pezzo surfaces. We show that such a phenomenon is a special case of “Toric Duality” proposed in hep-th… CONTINUE READING
