Chiral 2d theories from N = 4 SYM with varying coupling
Abstract
We study 2d chiral theories arising from 4d N = 4 SuperYang Mills (SYM) with varying coupling τ . The 2d theory is obtained by dimensional reduction of N = 4 SYM on a complex curve with a partial topological twist that accounts for the nonconstant τ. The resulting 2d theories can preserve (0 ,n) with n = 2 ,4 ,6 ,8 chiral supersymmetry, and have a natural realization in terms of strings from wrapped D3branes in Ftheory. We determine the twisted dimensional reduction, as well as the spectrum and anomaly polynomials of the resulting strings in various dimensions. We complement this by considering the dual Mtheory configurations, which can either be realized in terms of M5branes wrapped on complex surfaces, or M2branes on curves that result in 1d supersymmetric quantum mechanics.
