The IR obstruction to UV completion for Dante’s Inferno model with higherdimensional gauge theory origin
Abstract
We continue our investigation of large field inflation models obtained from higherdimensional gauge theories, initiated in our previous study http://dx.doi.org/10.1088/14757516/2015/02/031. We focus on Dante’s Inferno model which was the most preferred model in our previous analysis. We point out the relevance of the IR obstruction to UV completion, which constrains the form of the potential of the massive vector field, under the current observational upper bound on the tensor to scalar ratio. We also show that in simple examples of the potential arising from DBI action of a D5brane and that of an NS5brane that the inflation takes place in the field range which is within the convergence radius of the Taylor expansion. This is in contrast to the well known examples of axion monodromy inflation where inflaton takes place outside the convergence radius of the Taylor expansion. This difference arises from the very essence of Dante’s Inferno model that the effective inflaton potential is stretched in the inflaton field direction compared with the potential for the original field.

We show that the spin connection of the standard metric on a sixdimensional sphere gives an exact solution to the generalized selfduality equations suggested by Tchrakian some years ago. We work on a SO(6) gauge theory with a higherderivative coupling term. The model consists of vector fields only. The pseudoenergy is bounded from below by a topological charge, which is proportional to the winding number of spatial S{sup 5} around the internal space SO(6). The fifth homotopy group of SO(6) is, indeed, Z. The coupling constant of the higher derivative term is quadratic in the radius of the underlying spacemore »

Sixdimensional (1,0) superconformal models and higher gauge theory
We analyze the gauge structure of a recently proposed superconformal field theory in six dimensions. We find that this structure amounts to a weak CourantDorfman algebra, which, in turn, can be interpreted as a strong homotopy Lie algebra. This suggests that the superconformal field theory is closely related to higher gauge theory, describing the parallel transport of extended objects. Indeed we find that, under certain restrictions, the field content and gauge transformations reduce to those of higher gauge theory. We also present a number of interesting examples of admissible gauge structures such as the structure Lie 2algebra of an abelianmore » 

Topological higher gauge theory: From BF to BFCG theory
We study generalizations of three and fourdimensional BF theories in the context of higher gauge theory. First, we construct topological higher gauge theories as discrete state sum models and explain how they are related to the state sums of Yetter, Mackaay, and Porter. Under certain conditions, we can present their corresponding continuum counterparts in terms of classical Lagrangians. We then explain that two of these models are already familiar from the literature: the {sigma}{phi}EA model of threedimensional gravity coupled to topological matter and also a fourdimensional model of BF theory coupled to topological matter. 
4dimensional layer phase as a gauge field localization: Extensive study of the 5dimensional anisotropic U(1) gauge model on the lattice
We study a 4+1 dimensional pure Abelian Gauge model on the lattice with two anisotropic couplings independent of each other and of the coordinates. A first exploration of the phase diagram using mean field approximation and monte carlo techniques has demonstrated the existence of a new phase, the so called Layer phase, in which the forces in the 4D subspace are Coulomblike while in the transverse direction (fifth dimension) the force is confining. This allows the possibility of a gauge field localization scheme. In this work the use of bigger lattice volumes and higher statistics confirms the existence of themore »
