Event Reconstruction in the PHENIX Central Arm Spectrometers
To this end we derive explicit (and remarkably simple) formulae for the relevant NIM-rep coefficients.
Twisted brane charges for non-simply connected groups
B id k (¯g), and the NIM-rep N (A) agrees with the fusion rules.
Twisted brane charges for non-simply connected groups
Here, the D-branes are parametrised by ω -twisted highest weight representations a of gk [18, 19, 20], and the NIM-rep coefficients are given by twisted fusion rules .
Twisted brane charges for non-simply connected groups
First there are the untwisted branes for which the automorphism is trivial; the corresponding NIM-rep will be denoted by N (D).
Twisted brane charges for non-simply connected groups
Some aspects of this NIM-rep were already studied in where also the charge group was partially determined.
Twisted brane charges for non-simply connected groups
For this class of theories we shall be able to give a complete description of the NIM-rep N (D).
Twisted brane charges for non-simply connected groups
In section 2.1 we construct the relevant NIM-rep explicitly.
Twisted brane charges for non-simply connected groups
Given the simplicity of our formula for the NIM-rep, we are able to do this in closed form.
Twisted brane charges for non-simply connected groups
This is really just the tensor product N ⊗ Zm of two NIM-reps.
Twisted brane charges for non-simply connected groups
If µ ∈ E are the exponents of the original NIM-rep N , then the exponents of the new NIM-rep will be the multi-set ∪m−1 i=0 J iE .
Twisted brane charges for non-simply connected groups
Now, we know that a NIM-rep is decomposable (into a direct sum of smaller NIM-reps) if and only if the multiplicity of the vacuum 0 as an exponent is larger than one (see ).
Twisted brane charges for non-simply connected groups
Thus our new NIM-rep N ⊗ Zm will be indecomposable, iff the old NIM-rep N was indecomposable and if no non-trivial power of the simple current J is itself an exponent of N .
Twisted brane charges for non-simply connected groups
By these considerations, we know that our proposed NIM-rep N (A∗ ) ⊗ Zd has the correct exponents.
Twisted brane charges for non-simply connected groups
Given that we have such a simple explicit formula for the NIM-rep, we can analyse the corresponding charges in detail.
