Supersymmetry enhancement by monopole operators


We describe a method which allows one to study hidden symmetries in a large class of strongly coupled supersymmetric gauge theories in three dimensions. We apply this method to the ABJM theory and to the infrared limit of N = 4 SQCD with adjoint and fundamental matter. We show that the U(N) ABJM model with Chern-Simons level k = 1 or k = 2 has hidden N = 8… (More)
