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

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

#### Abstract

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 1*SU*(N) models, the exceptional gauge group *G*_{2} and
models that break supersymmetry dynamically.
