Non-spherical horizons, I

- D. Morrison, M. Plesser
- Physics
- 23 October 1998

We formulate an extension of Maldacena’s AdS/CFT conjectures to the case of branes located at singular points in the ambient transverse space. For singularities which occur at finite distance in the… Expand

Summing the instantons: Quantum cohomology and mirror symmetry in toric varieties

- D. Morrison, M. Plesser
- Physics, Mathematics
- 30 December 1994

Abstract We use the gauged linear sigma model introduced by Witten to calculate instanton expansions for correlation functions in topological sigma models with target space a toric variety V or a… Expand

Duality in {Calabi-Yau} Moduli Space

- B. Greene, M. Plesser
- Physics
- 5 March 1990

We describe a duality in the moduli space of string vacua which pairs topologically distinct Calabi-Yau manifolds and shows that the yield isomorphic conformal theories. At the level of the… Expand

New N= 2 superconformal field theories in four dimensions

- P. Argyres, M. Plesser, N. Seiberg, E. Witten
- Physics
- 22 November 1995

New examples of N = 2 supersymmetric conformal field theories are found as fixed points of SU(2) N = 2 supersymmetric QCD. Relations among the scaling dimensions of their relevant chiral operators,… Expand

The moduli space of vacua of N = 2 SUSY QCD and duality in N = 1 SUSY QCD

- P. Argyres, M. Plesser, N. Seiberg
- Physics
- 7 March 1996

Abstract We analyze in detail the moduli space of vacua of N = 2 SUSY QCD with n c colors and n f flavors. The Coulomb branch has submanifolds with non-Abelian gauge symmetry. The massless quarks and… Expand

Toric duality is Seiberg duality

- C. Beasley, M. Plesser
- Physics
- 6 September 2001

We study four N = 1 SU(N) 6 gauge theories, with bi-fundamental chiral matter and a superpotential. In the infrared, these gauge theories all realize the low-energy world-volume description of N… Expand

Enhanced gauge symmetry in type II string theory

- S. Katz, D. Morrison, M. Plesser
- Physics, Mathematics
- 21 January 1996

Abstract We show how enhanced gauge symmetry in type II string theory compactified on a Calabi-Yau threefold arises from singularities in the geometry of the target space. When the target space of… Expand

Mirror manifolds in higher dimension

- B. Greene, D. Morrison, M. Plesser
- Mathematics, Physics
- 21 February 1994

We describe mirror manifolds in dimensions different from the familiar case of complex threefolds. We isolate certain simplifying features present only in dimension three, and supply alternative… Expand

Towards Mirror Symmetry as Duality for Two-Dimensional Abelian Gauge Theories

- D. Morrison, M. Plesser
- Physics
- 22 August 1995

Superconformal sigma models with Calabi--Yau target spaces described as complete intersection subvarieties in toric varieties can be obtained as the low-energy limit of certain abelian gauge theories… Expand

D3-branes on partial resolutions of abelian quotient singularities of Calabi–Yau threefolds

- C. Beasley, B. Greene, C. Lazaroiu, M. Plesser
- Physics, Mathematics
- 26 July 1999

Abstract We investigate field theories on the world-volume of a D3-brane transverse to partial resolutions of a Z 3 × Z 3 Calabi–Yau threefold quotient singularity. We deduce the field content and… Expand
