This work provides yet another example of how string theory unites seemingly distant physical problems. (See references for detailed results.) The central object considered here is supersymmetric gauge theories in three dimensions. In particular, we shall be interested in their vacuum structure. The other three problems that turn out to be closely related to these gauge theories are: • Nonabelian monopoles of Prasad and Sommerfield, which are solutions of the Bogomolny equation ∗F = DΦ (where F… CONTINUE READING
