Factorised 3d $$ \mathcal{N} $$ = 4 orthosymplectic quivers

Akhond, Mohammad and Carta, Federico and Dwivedi, Siddharth and Hayashi, Hirotaka and Kim, Sung-Soo and Yagi, Futoshi (2021) 'Factorised 3d $$ \mathcal{N} $$ = 4 orthosymplectic quivers.', Journal of high energy physics., 2021 (5). p. 269.


We study the moduli space of 3d N = 4 quiver gauge theories with unitary, orthogonal and symplectic gauge nodes, that fall into exceptional sequences. We find that both the Higgs and Coulomb branches of the moduli space factorise into decoupled sectors. Each decoupled sector is described by a single quiver gauge theory with only unitary gauge nodes. The orthosymplectic quivers serve as magnetic quivers for 5d N = 1 superconformal field theories which can be engineered in type IIB string theories both with and without an O5 plane. We use this point of view to postulate the dual pairs of unitary and orthosymplectic quivers by deriving them as magnetic quivers of the 5d theory. We use this correspondence to conjecture exact highest weight generating functions for the Coulomb branch Hilbert series of the orthosymplectic quivers, and provide tests of these results by directly computing the Hilbert series for the orthosymplectic quivers in a series expansion.
