Superconformal index of { N }=3 orientifold theories
Abstract
We analyze the superconformal index of the { N }=3 supersymmetric generalized orientifold theories recently proposed. In the large N limit we derive the index from the KaluzaKlein modes in {{\boldsymbol{AdS}}}_{5}× {{\boldsymbol{S}}}^{5}/{{{Z}}}_{k}, which are obtained from ones in {{\boldsymbol{AdS}}}_{5}× {{\boldsymbol{S}}}^{5} by a simple {{{Z}}}_{k} projection. For the ordinary {{{Z}}}_{2} orientifold case the agreement with the gauge theory calculation is explicitly confirmed, and for {{{Z}}}_{k≥slant 3} we perform a few consistency checks with known results for { N }=3 theories. We also study finite N corrections by analyzing wrapped D3branes and discrete torsions in the dual geometry.
