ABSTRACT

We study Baxter’s T-Q equation of XXX spin-chain models under the semiclassical limit where an intriguing SU(N)/SU(2)N−3 correspondence is found. That is, two kinds of 4D \( \mathcal{N} = 2 \) superconformal field theories having the above different gauge groups are encoded simultaneously in one Baxter’s T-Q equation which captures their spectral curves. For example, while one is SU(N
c
) with N
f
= 2N
c
flavors the other turns out to be \( {\text{SU}}{(2)^{{N_c} - 3}} \) with N
c
hyper-multiplets (N
c
> 3). It is seen that the corresponding Seiberg-Witten differential supports our proposal.

    • "The supersymmetric vacua of the N = 2 theory are in one-to-one correspondence with the eigenstates of the quantum integrable system labeled by – 1 – the solutions of the Bethe ansatz. The so-called Bethe/Gauge correspondence has given us new insights into dualities and symmetries between gauge theories [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21]. 1 For example, it has been used to establish new 2d/4d dualities [23] [24] and 3d/5d dualities [25] [26] [27], to shed light on two-dimensional Seiberg-like dualities [28] [29], and three-dimensional mirror symmetry [30]. The correspondence also solves quantum integrable models in finite volume, as it gives rise to thermodynamic Bethe ansatz equations by summing the instantons [6, 31–34]. "

    ABSTRACT: We construct new integrable systems describing particles with internal spin from four-dimensional $\mathcal{N}=2$ quiver gauge theories. The models can be quantized and solved exactly using the quantum inverse scattering method and also using the Bethe/Gauge correspondence.

    ABSTRACT: We study the link between WZW model and the spin-1/2 XYZ chain. This is achieved by comparing the second-order differential equations from them. In the former case, the equation is the Ward-Takahashi identity satisfied by one-point toric conformal blocks. In the latter case, it arises from Baxter's TQ relation. We find that the dimension of the representation space w.r.t. the V-valued primary field in these conformal blocks gets mapped to the total number of chain sites. By doing so, Stroganov's "The Importance of being Odd" (cond-mat/0012035) can be consistently understood in terms of WZW model language. We first confirm this correspondence by taking a trigonometric limit of the XYZ chain. That eigenstates of the resultant two-body Sutherland model from Baxter's TQ relation can be obtained by deforming toric conformal blocks supports our proposal.

    ABSTRACT: In this article we explore the duality between the low energy effective theory of five-dimensional N=1 SU(N)^{M-1} and SU(M)^{N-1} linear quiver gauge theories compactified on S^1. The theories we study are the five-dimensional uplifts of four-dimensional superconformal linear quivers. We study this duality by comparing the Seiberg-Witten curves and the Nekrasov partition functions of the two dual theories. The Seiberg-Witten curves are obtained by minimizing the worldvolume of an M5-brane with nontrivial geometry. Nekrasov partition functions are computed using topological string theory. The result of our study is a map between the gauge theory parameters, i.e., Coulomb moduli, masses and UV coupling constants, of the two dual theories. Apart from the obvious physical interest, this duality also leads to compelling mathematical identities. Through the AGTW conjecture these five-dimentional gauge theories are related to q-deformed Liouville and Toda SCFTs in two-dimensions. The duality we study implies the relations between Liouville and Toda correlation functions through the map we derive.
