We develop an effective low energy field theory for the Kondo effect in a quantum dot where the original four-fold degeneracy of the dot level is partially removed. The SU(2) Keldysh effective action approach [1,2] is generalized to the case of the broken SU(4) Anderson model with spin and orbital degrees of freedom. The theory is valid in the strong and weak coupling regimes as well as in the crossover. It provides universal differential conductance with the scale having the correct limiting behavior for the SU(2) and SU(4) cases. As an application to a physical system, we explore the Kondo effect in a quantum dot made of a carbon nanotube with strong spin-orbit interaction and valley mixing. The symmetry properties of the carbon nanotube Hamiltonian are exploited to identify the structure of the Keldysh effective action. We further investigate in detail the Kondo resonance and its behavior in perpendicular and parallel magnetic fields and compare it with recent experiments on the Kondo effect in ultraclean carbon nanotubes.
