Reference for N=4 d=3 SuperYangMills

  1. Jan 19, 2014 #1
    I am looking for a review article on extended N=4 supersymmetry in 3=2+1 spacetime dimensions.
    (8 supercharges in total).
    I am familiar with the N=1, d=4 case, but now I need to study the N=4, d=3.

    Is anyone aware of the existence of such an introductory article, or a book in which this case is treated, starting from the basics?
    In particular I need to understand how to write the SuperYangMills lagrangian, coupled with the matter hypermultiplets.
    What does it change from the N=1 case?

    Thanks for the advice.

    I don't think there is such a thing as a d=3 N=4 super Yang Mills theory. In three dimensions you usually work with Chern Simons theories, but I could be wrong.
