Vortex-strings in N = 2 quiver × U ( 1 ) theories

We study 12 -BPS vortex-strings in four dimensional N = 2 supersymmetric quiver theories with gauge group SU(N)n × U(1). The matter content of the quiver can be represented by what we call a tetris

Critical non-Abelian vortices and holography for little string theory

It has been shown that non-Abelian vortex string supported in four dimensional (4D) N = 2 supersymmetric QCD (SQCD) with the U(2) gauge group and Nf = 4 quark flavors becomes a critical superstring.

Quantum deformation of the effective theory on non-Abelian string and 2D-4D correspondence

We explore non-Abelian strings in the r=N-1 vacuum of N=2 supersymmetric QCD with the gauge group U(N) and N_f flavors of quarks (N_f\geq N), where r is the number of condensed quarks. N=2

Vortex-Strings in N=2 SQCD and Bulk-String Decoupling

We study vortex-strings in four-dimensional N=2 supersymmetric SU(Nc)xU(1) gauge theories with Nf hypermultiplets in the fundamental representation of SU(Nc) and general U(1) charges. If Nf>Nc, the

In this talk we are going to discuss recent results on non-Abelian vortex strings in four-dimensional (4D) N = 2 supersymmetric QCD with U(N = 2) gauge group and Nf = 4 flavors of quark

NS Three-form Flux Deformation for the Critical Non-Abelian Vortex String

It has been shown that non-Abelian solitonic vortex string supported in four-dimensional (4D) N = 2 supersymmetric QCD (SQCD) with the U(2) gauge group and N f = 4 quark flavors becomes a critical

New vortex-string worldsheet theories from supersymmetric localization

A bstractWe use supersymmetric localization techniques to study the low-energy dynamics of BPS vortex-strings in four-dimensional N=2$$ \mathcal{N}=2 $$ theories. We focus on theories with SU(Nc) ×

Non-Abelian strings in N = 1 supersymmetric QCD

Non-Abelian flux tubes (strings) are well studied in N = 2 supersymmetric QCD in (3+1) dimensions. In addition to translational zero modes they have also orientational moduli associated with

Non-Abelian strings in N=1 supersymmetric QCD

Non-Abelian flux tubes (strings) are well studied in N=2 supersymmetric QCD in (3+1) dimensions. In addition to translational zero modes they have also orientational moduli associated with rotations

Non-Abelian vortex in four dimensions as a critical superstring

We discuss recent progress in describing a certain non-Abelian vortex string as a critical superstring on a conifold and clarify some subtle points. This particular solitonic vortex is supported in

Non-Abelian flux tubes in N = 1 SQCD : Supersizing world-sheet supersymmetry

We consider non-Abelian 1/2 BPS flux tubes (strings) in a deformed N=2 supersymmetric gauge theory, with mass terms mu_{1,2} of the adjoint fields breaking N=2 down to N=1. The main feature of the

Type I non-abelian superconductors in supersymmetric gauge theories

Non-BPS non-Abelian vortices with 1 internal moduli space are studied in an = 2 supersymmetric U(1) × SU(2) gauge theory with adjoint mass terms. For generic internal orientations the classical force

Superconformal R charges and dyon multiplicities in N = 2 gauge theories

N=(2,2) theories in 1+1D exhibit a direct correspondence between the R charges of chiral operators at a conformal point and the multiplicities of Bogomol'nyi-Prasad-Sommerfield (BPS) kinks in a

Vortices, instantons and branes

The purpose of this paper is to describe a relationship between the moduli space of vortices and the moduli space of instantons. We study charge vortices in Yang-Mills-Higgs theories and show that

The quantum dynamics of heterotic vortex strings

We study the quantum dynamics of vortex strings in = 1 SQCD with U(Nc) gauge group and Nf = Nc quarks. The classical worldsheet of the string has = (0, 2) supersymmetry, but this is broken by quantum

The BPS spectra of two-dimensional supersymmetric gauge theories with twisted mass terms

The vacuum structure and spectra of two-dimensional gauge theories with = (2,2) supersymmetry are investigated. These theories admit a twisted mass term for charged chiral matter multiplets. In the

N = 1 supersymmetric quantum chromodynamics : How confined non-Abelian monopoles emerge from quark condensation

We consider N=1 supersymmetric QCD with the gauge group U(N) and N{sub f}=N quark flavors. To get rid of flat directions we add a meson superfield. The theory has no adjoint fields and, therefore, no

The Holomorphic tension of vortices

We study the tension of vortices in = 2 SQCD broken to = 1 by a superpotential W(Φ), in color-flavor locked vacua. The tension can be written as T = T BPS+T non BPS . The BPS tension is equal to 4π||
