Dessins d'enfants in N=2 generalised quiver theories

He, Y. & Read, J. (2015). Dessins d'enfants in N=2 generalised quiver theories. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2015(8), article number 85. doi: 10.1007/jhep08(2015)085


We study Grothendieck’s dessins d’enfants in the context of the N=2 supersymmetric gauge theories in (3 + 1) dimensions with product SU (2) gauge groups which have recently been considered by Gaiotto et al.. We identify the precise context in which dessins arise in these theories: they are the so-called ribbon graphs of such theories at certain isolated points in the moduli space. With this point in mind, we highlight connections to other work on trivalent dessins, gauge theories, and the modular group.
