Chiral Rings, Superpotentials and the Vacuum Structure of N = 1 Supersymmetric Gauge Theories

Andreas Brandhuber, Harald Ita, Harald Nieder, Yaron Oz, and Christian Romelsberger


We use the Konishi anomaly equations to construct the exact effective superpotential of the glueball superfields in various N = 1 supersymmetric gauge theories. We use the superpotentials to study in detail the structure of the spaces of vacua of these theories. We consider chiral and non-chiral 1SU(N) models, the exceptional gauge group G2 and models that break supersymmetry dynamically.
