Duality between USp gauge theories with antisymmetric matter

This paper proposes a derivation of a duality relating two 4d N=1 supersymmetric USp gauge theories with antisymmetric matter and fundamental flavors. The duality was originally conjectured based on an identity between supersymmetric indices. Here, the authors show the duality can be derived through a sequence of known dualities, deconfinement, RG flow, and Higgsing. They also provide an alternative proof of the index identity using these physical steps.
