Moduli Spaces of SUSY QFTs.

In general the vacuum state of a QFT is not unique.
Physics is different when the QFT lives on a different vacuum.
Define the Moduli Space as the set of gauge inequivalent vacua.
M = {all vacua}/G
Label different vacua by the vevs of the scalars.
Geometrically M is an algebraic variety.
Interesting object to study to understand IR dynamics of a QFT.

Moduli spaces for theories with 8 supercharges.
In general classical M =
6 quantum M. Quantum corrections.
To make the problem easier, consider the subset of SUSY QFTs.
4d QFT theory with 8 supercharges. (4d N = 2)
We have the following multiplets:
˜ = (qα , ϕ, q˜ ˙ , σ)
Hypermultiplet. X = (Q, Q)
β
Vector multiplet. V = (VN =1 , Φ) = (Aµ , ψα , λβ , φ)
Moduli space splits into different zones, depending on which scalar
takes a non-zero vev.

Generic Features of 3d N = 4.

Perform a dimensional reduction of the 4d N = 2 theory.
Ai is dual to a real scalar γ. Dual photon.
γ can take vev.
Coulomb branch is enlarged compared to 4d N = 2.
∗F = J is a conserved current. Extra U (1)J hidden symmetry
U (1)J acts on γ by shifts γ → γ + a
Parametrize the directions opened up by hγi by the vev of BPS
monopole operators: disorder operators semiclassically given by
( σ +iγ)
V ∼ e g2

N

Circles represent gauge U (Ni ) factors of the gauge group.
The square represents a flavour SU (N ) group.
Lines represent bifundamental hypermultiplets.
The lagrangian in 3d N = 4 is fully determined by the matter
content.
The quiver defines in a unique way the theory.
