# New M(atrix)-models for Commutative and Noncommutative Gauge Theories

@article{Ganor2000NewMF, title={New M(atrix)-models for Commutative and Noncommutative Gauge Theories}, author={Ori J. Ganor}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2000} }

We propose a M(atrix) model for N=4 $SU(k)$ Super-Yang-Mills theory compactified on $T^4$. In this model it is possible to make $T^4$ noncommutative and it is easy to turn on all 6 components of the noncommutativity on $T^4$. The action of S-duality on the noncommutativity parameters is also manifest. The M(atrix)-model is given by the large $N$ limit of a $\sigma$-model on $T^2$ whose target space is the moduli space of $k$ SU(N) instantons on $T^3\times R$. We also propose that the $SU(k)$ 2… Expand

The null-brane background is a simple smooth 1/2 BPS solution of string theory. By tuning a parameter, this background develops a big crunch/big bang type singularity. We construct the DLCQ… Expand

On Noncommutative Open String Theories

- Physics

We investigate new compactifications of OM theory giving rise to a 3+1 dimensional open string theory with noncommutative $x^0$-$x^1$ and $x^2$-$x^3$ coordinates. The theory can be directly obtained… Expand

Two conjectures on gauge theories, gravity, and infinite dimensional Kac-Moody groups

- Physics

We propose that the structure of gauge theories, the (2,0) and little-string theories is encoded in a unique function on the real group manifold E10(R). The function is invariant under the maximal… Expand

We use the T-duality transformation which relates M-theory on T^3 to M-theory on a second T^3 with inverse volume to test the Banks-Fischler-Shenker-Susskind suggestion for the matrix model… Expand

Another Conjecture about M(atrix) Theory

The current understanding of M(atrix) theory is that in the large N limit certain supersymmetric Yang Mills theories become equivalent to M-theory in the infinite momentum frame. In this paper the… Expand

Abstract We present a self-contained study of ADHM multi-instantons in SU(N) gauge theory, especially the novel interplay with supersymmetry and the large-N limit. We give both field- and… Expand

Abstract We study the compactification of the (2, 0) and type-II little-string theories on S 1 , T 2 and T 3 with an R-symmetry twist that preserves half the supersymmetry. We argue that it produces… Expand

We show that field theories with light-like noncommutativity, that is with θ0i = -θ1i, are unitary quantum theories, and that they can be obtained as decoupled field theory limits of string theory… Expand
