An N = 1 Lagrangian for the rank 1 E 6 superconformal theory

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We propose that a certain 4dN = 1 SU(4) gauge theory flows in the IR to the rank 1 N = 2 strongly coupled SCFT with E6 global symmetry and 25 free chiral fields. This proposal is tested by comparing various RG invariant quantities, notably, anomalies and the superconformal index. We discuss the generalization to N = 1 SU(2n + 2) gauge theory models flowing in the IR to the R(2,2n+1) family of strongly coupled SCFTs plus free fields.
