Research Fields and Selected Results
BPS Wilson loops in three-dimensional Chern-Simons-matter theories
We found 1/6 BPS bosonic and fermionic Wilson loops in ABJM theories. We found BPS Wilson loops in three-dimensional super-Chern-Simons theories with quite less supersymmetries. This result is quite unexpected to some famous experts on Wilson loops.
Integrable structures in Chern-Simons-matter theories
We found integrable structures in Chern-Simons-matter theories. Our results on \beta-, \gamma-deformed ABJM theories established the foundation of integrable structures in 3d fishnet theories.
Scattering Amplitudes in string and gauge theories
Before clear proof of Cachazo-Svrcek-Witten rules for tree amplitudes in gauge theories appeared, we proved that the amplitudes obtained from these rules satisfy dual Ward identity and charge conjugation invariance. We also show that the CSW rules and the generalization to include massless fermions reproduce correctly the general googly amplitudes. These gave strong supports to CSW rules.
