Correspondence with string theory V( ) 1 3 4 bosonic super The number of Cuts is important: 1-cut critical points (2, 3 and 4) give (p,q) minimal (bosonic) string theory 2-cut critical point (1) gives (p,q) minimal superstring theory (SUSY on WS) [Takayanagi-Toumbas ‘03], [Douglas et.al. ‘03], [Klebanov et.al ‘03] What happens in the multi-cut critical points? Continuum limit = blow up Maximally TWO cuts around the critical points 2 ? Where is multi-cut ?

What should correspond to the multi-cut matrix models? Reconsider the TWO-cut cases: 2-cut critical points [Takayanagi-Toumbas ‘03], [Douglas et.al. ‘03], [Klebanov et.al ‘03] Z_2 transformation = (Z_2) R-R charge conjugation Because of WS Fermion ONE-cut:TWO-cut: Gauge it away by superconformal symmetry Superstrings !

17
What should correspond to the multi-cut matrix models? How about MULTI (=k) -cut cases: Z_k transformation =?= Z_k “R-R charge” conjugation Because of “Generalized Fermion” ONE-cut:multi-cut: [HI ‘09] R0 (= NS) sector:Rn sector: Z_k spin structure => Selection rule => Charge [HI ‘09] 3-cut critical points Gauge it away by Generalized superconformal symmetry

Minimal k-fractional super-CFT: Which ψ ? Zamolodchikov-Fateev parafermion [Zamolodchikov-Fateev ‘85] Why is it good? It is because the spectrums of the (p,q) minimal fractional super-CFT and the multi-cut matrix models are the same. It is because the spectrums of the (p,q) minimal fractional super-CFT and the multi-cut matrix models are the same. [HI ‘09] 1. Basic parafermion fields: 2. Central charge: 3.

Minimal k-fractional super-CFT requires Screening charge: Correspondence [HI ‘09] : R2 sector : R(k-2) sector Z_k sym is broken (at least to Z_2) ! Z_k sym is broken (at least to Z_2) !

33
The Z_k symmetry breaking cases have general distributions How do we do diagonalization ? We made a jump!

34
The general k-cut (p,q) solution: 1. The COSH solution (k is odd and even): 2. The SINH solution (k is even): [CISY2 ‘09] The deformed Chebyshev functions The deformed Chebyshev functions are solution to EZJ-DKK equation:

36
The matrix realization for the every (p,q;k) solution With a replacement: Repeatedly using the addition formulae, we can show [CISY2 ‘09] for every pair of (p,q) !

37
To construct the general form, we introduce “Reflected Shift Matrices” Shift matrix: Ref. matrix: Algebra: “Reflected Shift Matrices”

38
The matrix realization for the every (p,q;k) solution In this formula we define: [CISY2 ‘09] A matrix realization for the COSH solution (p,q;k): A matrix realization for the SINH solution (p,q;k), (k is even): The other realizations are related by some proper siminality tr.

39
Algebraic Equations The cosh solution: The sinh solution: Here, (p,q) is CFT labeling !!! Multi-Cut Matrix Model knows (p,q) Minimal Fractional String! [CISY2 ‘09]

An Example of Algebraic Curves (k=4) [CISY2 ‘09] COSH (µ<0) SINH (µ>0) : Z_2 charge conjugation is equivalent to η=-1 brane of type 0 minimal superstrings (k=2) k=4 MFSST (k=2) MSST with η=±1 ??

41
Conclusion of Z_k breaking cases: [CISY2 ‘09] 1.We gave the solution to the general k-cut (p,q) Z_k breaking critical points. 2.They are cosh/sinh solutions. We showed all the cases have the matrix realizations. 3.Only the cosh/sinh solutions have the characteristic equations which are algebraic equations with real coefficients. (The other phase shifts are not allowed.) 4.This includes the ONE-cut and TWO-cut cases. The (p,q) CFT labeling naturally appears! The cosh/sinh indicates the Modular S-matrix of the CFT.

42
Some of Future Issues 1.Now it’s time to calculate the boundary states of fractional super-Liouville field theory ! 2.What is “fractional super-Riemann surfaces”? 3.Which string theory corresponds to the Z_k symmetric critical points (the Jacobi-poly. sol.) ? [CISY1’ 09] 4.Annulus amplitudes ? (Sym,Asym) 5.k=4 MFSST (k=2) MSST with η=±1 (cf. [HI’07]) The Multi-Cut Matrix Models May Include Many Many New Interesting Phenomena !!!
