Vacuum Mass Spectra for SU ( N ) Self-Dual Chern-Simons-Higgs Systems ∗


We study the SU (N) self-dual Chern-Simons-Higgs systems with adjoint matter coupling, and show that the sixth order self-dual potential has p(N) gauge inequivalent degenerate minima, where p(N) is the number of partitions of N. We compute the masses of the gauge and scalar excitations in these different vacua, revealing an intricate mass structure which… (More)
