3d-3d correspondence



Duality in string theory

String theory



A duality in string theory: relation between the 3d superconformal worldvolume quantum field theory on M5-brane wrapped on a (hyperbolic) 3-manifold and 3d Chern-Simons theory/analytically continued Chern-Simons theory.


Relation to volume conjecture

In Gang-Kim-Lee 14b, 3.2, Gang-Kim 18 (21) it is argued that the volume conjecture for Chern-Simons theory on hyperbolic 3-manifolds Σ 3\Sigma^3 is the combined statement of two dualities in string theory

  1. AdS/CFT duality

  2. 3d-3d correspondence

for the situation of M5-branes wrapped on Σ 3\Sigma^3 (DGKV 10):

Wrapping the M5-brane on a torsion 3-cycle yields: fractional M2-brane.

Wrapping the M5-brane instead on a 2-manifold yields: AGT correspondence.
