Semiclassics of three-dimensional SCFTs from holography Thumbnail

We use holography to compute the large-N eective eld theory along the moduli space of vacua of an innite class of three-dimensional N = 2 SCFTs admitting a dual M-theory description. We focus in particular on toric models and show how the spectrum of large R-charge SCFT chiral scalar operators corresponds to a set of explicit semiclassical solutions of our eective eld theory, which describe bound states of backreacting giant gravitons and baryonic-like M5- branes. Our semiclassical description allows for a direct computation of the scaling dimensions of these operators and provides a starting point for a semiclassical investigation of the SCFT data in the large R-charge sector. We consider the models corresponding to the Y 12(P2) and Q111 Sasaki-Einstein spaces as explicit examples.
