Effective action for non-geometric fluxes duality covariant actions

The (heterotic) double field theories and the exceptional field theories are manifestly duality covariant formulations, describing low-energy limit of various super-string and M-theory compactifications. These field theories are known to be reduced to the standard descriptions by introducing appropriately parameterized generalized metric and by applying suitably chosen section ...

Dual little strings from F-theory and flop transitions

A particular two-parameter class of little string theories can be described by M parallel M5-branes probing a transverse affine A N − 1 singularity. We previously discussed the duality between the theories labelled by (N, M) and (M, N). In this work, we propose that these two are in fact only part of a larger web of dual theories. We provide evidence that the theories labelled by ...

Supersymmetric many-body systems from partial symmetries — integrability, localization and scrambling

Partial symmetries are described by generalized group structures known as symmetric inverse semigroups. We use the algebras arising from these structures to realize supersymmetry in (0+1) dimensions and to build many-body quantum systems on a chain. This construction consists in associating appropriate supercharges to chain sites, in analogy to what is done in spin chains. For ...

A new approach to non-Abelian hydrodynamics

We present a new approach to describe hydrodynamics carrying non-Abelian macroscopic degrees of freedom. Based on the Kaluza-Klein compactification of a higher-dimensional neutral dissipative fluid on a manifold of non-Abelian isometry, we obtain a four-dimensional colored dissipative fluid coupled to Yang-Mills gauge field. We derive transport coefficients of resulting colored ...

Conformal Janus on Euclidean sphere

We interpret Janus as an interface in a conformal field theory and study its properties. The Janus is created by an exactly marginal operator and we study its effect on the interface conformal field theory on the Janus. We do this by utilizing the AdS/CFT correspondence. We compute the interface free energy both from leading correction to the Euclidean action in the dual gravity ...

Massless and massive higher spins from anti-de Sitter space waveguide

Understanding Higgs mechanism for higher-spin gauge fields is an outstanding open problem. We investigate this problem in the context of Kaluza-Klein compactification. Starting from a free massless higher-spin field in (d + 2)-dimensional anti-de Sitter space and compactifying over a finite angular wedge, we obtain an infinite tower of heavy, light and massless higher-spin fields ...

Rainbow vacua of colored higher-spin (A)dS3 gravity

We study the color-decoration of higher-spin (anti)-de Sitter gravity in three dimensions. We show that the rainbow vacua, which we found recently for the colored gravity theory, also pertain in the colored higher-spin theory. The color singlet spin-two plays the role of first fundamental form (metric). The difference is that when spontaneous breaking of color symmetry takes place, ...

Rainbow valley of colored (anti) de Sitter gravity in three dimensions

We propose a theory of three-dimensional (anti) de Sitter gravity carrying Chan-Paton color charges. We define the theory by Chern-Simons formulation with the gauge algebra \( \left(\mathfrak{g}{\mathfrak{l}}_2\oplus \mathfrak{g}{\mathfrak{l}}_2\right)\otimes \mathfrak{u}(N) \), obtaining a color-decorated version of interacting spin-one and spin-two fields. We also describe the ...

New supersymmetric localizations from topological gravity

Supersymmetric field theories can be studied exactly on off-shell “localizing” supergravity backgrounds. We show that these supergravity configurations can be identified with BRST invariant configurations of background topological gravity coupled to background topological gauge multiplets. We apply this topological point of view to two-dimensional \( \mathcal{N}=\left(2,2\right) \) ...

O(D, D) covariant Noether currents and global charges in double field theory

Double field theory is an approach for massless modes of string theory, unifying and geometrizing all gauge invariance in manifest O(D, D) covariant manner. In this approach, we derive off-shell conserved Noether current and corresponding Noether potential associated with unified gauge invariance. We add Wald-type counter two-form to the Noether potential and define conserved ...

Rigid holography and six-dimensional \( \mathcal{N}=\left(2,0\right) \) theories on AdS5 × \( \mathbb{S} \) 1

Field theories on anti-de Sitter (AdS) space can be studied by realizing them as low-energy limits of AdS vacua of string/M theory. In an appropriate limit, the field theories decouple from the rest of string/M theory. Since these vacua are dual to conformal field theories, this relates some of the observables of these field theories on AdS space to a subsector of the dual ...

Scanning tunneling macroscopy, black holes and AdS/CFT bulk locality

We establish resolution bounds on reconstructing a bulk field from boundary data on a timelike hypersurface. If the bulk only supports propagating modes, reconstruction is complete. If the bulk also supports evanescent modes, local reconstruction is not achievable unless one has exponential precision in knowledge of the boundary data. Without exponential precision, for a Minkowski ...

Three-dimensional SCFT on conic space as hologram of charged topological black hole

We construct three-dimensional \( \mathcal{N} \) = 2 supersymmetric field theories on conic spaces. Built upon the fact that the partition function depends solely on the Reeb vector of the Killing vector, we propose that holographic dual of these theories are four-dimensional, supersymmetric charged topological black holes. With the supersymmetry localization technique, we study ...

Lifshitz holography with isotropic scale invariance

Is it possible for an anisotropic Lifshitz critical point to actually exhibit isotropic conformal invariance? We answer this question in the affirmative by constructing a concrete holographic realization. We study three-dimensional spin-3 higher-spin gauge theory with a z = 2 Lifshitz ground state with non-trivial spin-3 background. We provide consistent boundary conditions and ...
