Abstract f (R) supergravity is known to contain a ghost mode associated with higher-derivative terms if it contains R n with n greater than two. We remove the ghost in f (R) supergravity by introducing auxiliary gauge field to absorb the ghost. We dub this method as the ghostbuster mechanism [1]. We show that the mechanism removes the ghost super-multiplet but also terms...

We systematically construct ghost-free higher-derivative actions of Abelian vector supermultiplets in four-dimensional \( \mathcal{N}=1 \) global supersymmetric theories. After giving a simple example which illustrates that a naive introduction of a higher-derivative term gives rise to a ghost, we discuss possible building blocks for a ghost-free action and explicitly show that...

We study an axially symmetric solution of a vortex in the Abelian-Higgs model at critical coupling in detail. Here we propose a new idea for a perturbative expansion of a solution, where the winding number of a vortex is naturally extended to be a real number and the solution is expanded with respect to it around its origin. We test this idea on three typical constants contained...

We analyze the two-dimensional ℂP N − 1 sigma model defined on a finite space interval L, with various boundary conditions, in the large N limit. With the Dirichlet boundary condition at the both ends, we show that the system has a unique phase, which smoothly approaches in the large L limit the standard 2D ℂP N − 1 sigma model in confinement phase, with a constant mass generated...

We derive the exact vortex partition function in 2d \( \mathcal{N}=\left(2,2\right) \) gauge theory on the Ω-background, applying the localization scheme in the Higgs phase. We show that the partition function at a finite Ω-deformation parameter ϵ satisfies a system of differential equations, which can be interpreted as a quantized version of the twisted F-term equations...

Geometric and dynamical aspects of a coupled 4D-2D interacting quantum field theory — the gauged nonAbelian vortex — are investigated. The fluctuations of the internal 2D nonAbelian vortex zeromodes excite the massless 4D Yang-Mills modes and in general give rise to divergent energies. This means that the well-known 2D \( \mathrm{\mathbb{C}}{\mathrm{\mathbb{P}}}^{N-1...

The interplay of gauge dynamics and flavor symmetries often leads to remarkably subtle phenomena in the presence of soliton configurations. Non-Abelian vortices — vortex solutions with continuous internal orientational moduli — provide an example. Here we study the effect of weakly gauging a U(1) R subgroup of the flavor symmetry on such BPS vortex solutions. Our prototypical...

We study stabilization of an unstable cosmic string associated with spontaneously broken U(1) R symmetry, which otherwise causes a dangerous roll-over process. We demonstrate that in a gauge mediation model, messengers can receive enough corrections from the thermal plasma of the supersymmetric standard model particles to stabilize the unstable modes of the string.

We give a systematic method to calculate higher derivative corrections to low-energy effective theories of solitons, which are in general nonlinear sigma models on the moduli spaces of the solitons. By applying it to the effective theory of a single BPS non-Abelian vortex in U(N) gauge theory with N fundamental Higgs fields, we obtain four-derivative corrections to the effective...

We show that a cosmic string associated with spontaneous U(1) R symmetry breaking gives a constraint for supersymmetric model building. In some models, the string can be viewed as a tube-like domain wall with a winding number interpolating a false vacuum and a true vacuum. Such string causes inhomogeneous decay of the false vacuum to the true vacuum via rapid expansion of the...

We analyze the structure of a particular higher derivative correction of five-dimensional ungauged and gauged supergravity with eight supercharges. Specifically, we determine all the purely bosonic terms which are connected by the supersymmetry transformation to the mixed gauge-gravitational Chern-Simons term, W ∧ tr R ∧ R. Our construction utilizes the superconformal formulation...

We present an off-shell formulation of a matter-Yang-Mills system coupled to supergravity in five-dimensional space-time. We give an invariant action for a general system of vector multiplets and hypermultiplets coupled to supergravity as well as the supersymmetry transformation rules. All the auxiliary fields are retained, so that the supersymmetry transformation rules remain...
