Abstract

We derive the semiclassical contributions from the real and complex bions in the two-dimensional ℂP N − 1 sigma model on ℝ×S 1 with a twisted boundary condition. The bion configurations are saddle points of the complexified Euclidean action, which can be viewed as bound states of a pair of fractional instantons with opposite topological charges. We first derive the bion solutions by solving the equation of motion in the model with a potential which simulates an interaction induced by fermions in the ℂP N − 1 quantum mechanics. The bion solutions have quasi-moduli parameters corresponding to the relative distance and phase between the constituent fractional instantons. By summing over the Kaluza-Klein modes of the quantum fluctuations around the bion backgrounds, we find that the effective action for the quasi-moduli parameters is renormalized and becomes a function of the dynamical scale (or the renormalized coupling constant). Based on the renormalized effective action, we obtain the semiclassical bion contribution in a weak coupling limit by making use of the Lefschetz thimble method. We find in the supersymmetric case that the bion contribution vanishes as expected from supersymmetry. In non-supersymmetric cases, the non-perturbative contribution has an imaginary ambiguity which is consistent with the expected infrared renormalon ambiguity. Our results explicitly demonstrate that the complex bion can explain the infrared renormalon.
