We study the different phases of field theories of compact antisymmetric tensors of rank h − 1 in arbitrary space-time dimensions D = d + 1. Starting in a ‘Coulomb’ phase, topological defects of dimension d − h − 1 ((d − h − 1)-branes) may condense leading to a generalized ‘confinement’ phase. If the dual theory is also compact the model may also have a third, generalized ‘Higgs’ phase, driven by the condensation of the dual (h − 2)-branes. Developing on the work of Julia and Toulouse for… CONTINUE READING
