Topologically gauged superconformal Chern-Simons matter theories.
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2012
Abstract: By coupling N = 8 superconformal matter to N = 8 superconformal Chern- Simons gravity in three dimensions we obtain theories with novel terms in the scalar po- tential leading to AdS3 solutions and superconformal symmetry breaking. If we start from the theory derived by Bagger, Lambert and Gustavsson, our coupled theory either inherits the SO(4) gauge group or reduces it to SO(3). If the construction is instead based on a free matter theory we find that the gravitational topological gauging also requires the in- troduction of a Chern-Simons gauge sector resulting in a consistent theory for any SO(N) gauge group.
