# Superconformal indices of three-dimensional theories related by mirror symmetry

@article{Krattenthaler2011SuperconformalIO, title={Superconformal indices of three-dimensional theories related by mirror symmetry}, author={Christian Krattenthaler and Vyacheslav P. Spiridonov and Grigory S. Vartanov}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2011}, volume={2011}, pages={1-20} }

Recently, Kim, and Imamura and Yokoyama derived an exact formula for superconformal indices in three-dimensional field theories. Using their results, we prove analytically the equality of superconformal indices in some U(1)-gauge group theories related by mirror symmetry. The proofs are based on well-known identities in the theory of q-special functions. We also suggest a general index formula taking into account the U(1)J global symmetry present for abelian theories.
