Titre Triality in Little String Theories
Résumé I discuss a class of little string theories (LSTs) with eight supercharges on the world-volume of $N$ M5-branes probing a transverse $\mathbb{Z}_M$ orbifold. These M-brane configurations compactified on a circle are dual to $M$ D5-branes intersecting $N$ NS5-branes on $T^2\times \mathbb{R}^{7,1}$ as well as to F-theory compactified on a toric Calabi-Yau threefold $X_{N,M}$. I argue that the K\"ahler cone of $X_{N,M}$ admits three regions associated with weakly coupled quiver gauge theories of gauge groups $[U(N)]^M$, $[U(M)]^N$ and $[U(NM/k)]^k$ where $k=\text{gcd}(N,M)$. These provide low-energy descriptions of different LSTs. The duality between the first two gauge theories is well known and is a consequence of the S-duality between D5- and NS5-branes or the T-duality of the LSTs. The triality involving the third gauge theory is new and I demonstrate it using several examples.
