Flows between Dualities for 3d Chern-Simons Theories    [PDF]

Siraj Khan, Radu Tatar
We study Seiberg-like dualities for 3d N=2 theories with flavors in fundamental and adjoint representations. The recent results of Intriligator and Seiberg provide a derivation of an Aharony duality from a Giveon-Kutasov duality. We extend their result to the case of more general theories involving various masses for fundamental quarks and adjoint fields. By fine tuning the vev of a scalar field and using various identifications between gauge groups and their singlet duals, we derive several examples of Aharony dualities. For theories with an adjoint field, we discuss the connection between the Aharony dualities proposed by Kim and Park for theories with multiple Coulomb branches and Giveon-Kutasov-Niarchos dualities.
