Expanding the landscape of $$ \mathcal{N} $$ = 2 rank 1 SCFTs
Abstract
Here, we refine our previous proposal [13] for systematically classifying 4d rank1 N = 2 SCFTs by constructing their possible Coulomb branch geometries. Four new recently discussed rank1 theories [4, 5], including novel N = 3 SCFTs, sit beautifully in our refined classification framework. By arguing for the consistency of their RG flows we can make a strong case for the existence of at least four additional rank1 SCFTs, nearly doubling the number of known rank1 SCFTs. The refinement consists of relaxing the assumption that the flavor symmetries of the SCFTs have no discrete factors. This results in an enlarged (but finite) set of possible rank1 SCFTs. Their existence can be further constrained using consistency of their central charges and RG flows.
