1 On the Moduli Space of Elliptic Maxwell-Chern-Simons Theories

By 

Abstract

We analyze the moduli space of the low-energy limit of 3-dimensional N = 3 Maxwell-Chern-Simons theories described by circular quiver diagrams, as for 4-dimensional elliptic models. We define the theories by using D3-NS5-(k,1)5-brane systems with an arbitrary number of fivebranes. The supersymmetry is expected to be enhanced to N = 4 in the low-energy limit. We show that the Higgs branch, in which all bifundamental scalar fields develop vacuum expectation values, is an abelian orbifold of C 4. We confirm that the same geometry is obtained as an M-theory dual of the brane system. We also consider theories realized by introducing more than two kinds of fivebranes, and obtain nontoric fourfolds as moduli spaces. Recently, there has been great interest in 3-dimensional superconformal field theories as theories for describing multiple M2-branes in various backgrounds. This was triggered by the proposal of a new class of 3-dimensional theories by Bagger and Lambert, 1)–3) and Gusstavson. 4),5) The model (BLG model) possesses N (d=3) =
