# Superconformal index of = 3 orientifold theories

@article{Imamura2016SuperconformalIO, title={Superconformal index of = 3 orientifold theories}, author={Yosuke Imamura and Shuichiro Yokoyama}, journal={Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical}, year={2016}, volume={49} }

We analyze the superconformal index of the = 3 supersymmetric generalized orientifold theories recently proposed. In the large N limit we derive the index from the Kaluza–Klein modes in AdS 5 × S 5 / Z k , which are obtained from ones in AdS 5 × S 5 by a simple Z k projection. For the ordinary Z 2 orientifold case the agreement with the gauge theory calculation is explicitly confirmed, and for Z k ≥ 3 we perform a few consistency checks with known results for = 3 theories. We also study…
