Emergent geometry in N=6 ChernSimonsmatter theory
Abstract
We investigate a strong coupling expansion of N=6 superconformal ChernSimons theory obtained from the semiclassical analysis of low energy, effective degrees of freedom given by the eigenvalues of a certain matrix model. We show how the orbifolded sphere S^7/Z_k of the dual geometry emerges dynamically from the distribution of the eigenvalues. As a test of this approach we compute the energy of offdiagonal excitations, finding perfect agreement with the dispersion relation of giant magnons.
