S-duality in N=1 orientifold SCFTs

García-Etxebarria, Iñaki and Heidenreich, Ben (2017) 'S-duality in N=1 orientifold SCFTs.', Fortschritte der Physik, 65 (3-4). p. 1700013.


We present a general solution to the problem of determining all S-dual descriptions for a specific (but very rich) class of urn:x-wiley:00158208:media:prop201700013:prop201700013-math-0003 SCFTs. These SCFTs are indexed by decorated toric diagrams, and can be engineered in string theory by probing orientifolds of isolated toric singularities with D3 branes. The S-dual phases are described by quiver gauge theories coupled to specific types of conformal matter which we describe explicitly. We illustrate our construction with many examples, including S-dualities in previously unknown SCFTs.
