The cover page shows an event recorded with the CMS detector (LHC, CERN) in 2012 at a proton-proton centre of mass energy of 8 TeV. It shows characteristics expected from the decay of the standard model (SM) Higgs boson to a pair of photons (dashed yellow lines and green towers). The event could also be due to known SM background processes. (©: CERN, see http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/)
- p-wave superconductors in dilaton gravity (pages 266–273)
Article first published online: 19 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/prop.201300034
In this paper, peculiar properties of p-wave superconductors in dilaton gravity are studied. The scale invariance of the bulk geometry is effectively broken due to the existence of dilaton. By coupling the dilaton to the non-Abelian gauge field, i.e. -1/4 e-β Φ FaμνFaμν, we find that the dissipative conductivity of the normal phase decreases and approaches zero at the zero frequency as β increases. Intuitively, the system behaves more and more like an insulator.

Mass-deformed ��= 2 gauge theories are studied from various points of view. Their partition functions can be computed via three dual approaches: firstly, (p, q)-brane webs in type II string theory using Nekrasov's instanton calculus, secondly, the (refined) topological string using the topological vertex formalism and thirdly, M theory via the elliptic genus of certain M-strings configurations. For a large class of theories these approaches yield the same gauge theory partition function. To make modular properties more tangible, a fourth approach is considered by connecting the partition function to the equivariant elliptic genus.
