On the global symmetries of 6D superconformal field theories

Article, Preprint English OPEN
Bertolini, M; Merkx, PR; Morrison, DR;

We study global symmetry groups of six-dimensional superconformal field theories (SCFTs). In the Coulomb branch we use field theoretical arguments to predict an upper bound for the global symmetry of the SCFT. We then analyze global symmetry groups of F-theory construct... View more
