I'm studying the introduction of flavour degrees of freedom in the AdS/CFT correspondence and now I'm supposed to calculate the mass spectrum of mesons in the Coulomb branch. I have searched the ...
What is the moduli space of a QFT? What does it mean exactly that there are different inequivalent vacua? Can someone give a precise definition of the moduli space, and some easy examples? And why ...
What is the relation between the representation the Higgs field transforms under, the types of couplings in the theory and Higgs/Coulomb branches?
When reading about Higgs and Coulomb 'phases' I came across two separate definitions: The first tells us that the Higgs/Coulomb phases are determined by the representation that the Higgs field ...
In the paper of Intriligator, Seiberg, and Shih from 2007, they give an expression for the effective potential on the pseudo-moduli space $X$, estimated at large $X$ (equation 1.3). In this equation, ...
I'm curious what the precise definition of the moduli space of a QFT is. One often talks about the classical moduli space, which then can get quantum corrections. Does this mean the quantum moduli ...
