The gravity dual of supersymmetric gauge theories on a squashed three-sphere

Abstract:

We present the gravity dual to a class of three-dimensional N=2 supersymmetric gauge theories on a U(1) × U(1)-invariant squashed three-sphere, with a non-trivial background gauge field. This is described by a supersymmetric solution of four-dimensional N=2 gauged supergravity with a non-trivial instanton for the graviphoton field. The particular gauge theory in turn determines the lift to a solution of eleven-dimensional supergravity. We compute the partition function for a class of Chern-Si...
