Abstract

I will present a new approach to study the RG flow in 3d N=4 gauge theories, based on an analysis of the Coulomb branch of vacua. The Coulomb branch is described as a complex algebraic variety and important information about the strongly coupled fixed points of the theory can be extracted from the study of its singularities. I will use this framework to study the fixed points of U(N) and Sp(N) gauge theories with fundamental matter, revealing some surprising scenarios at low amount of matter.
