Supersymmetric Yang-Mills Theories

- L. Brink, J. Schwarz, J. Scherk
- Physics
- 28 March 1977

Abstract Yang-Mills theories with simple supersymmetry are constructed in 2, 4, 6, and 10 dimensions, and it is argued that these are essentially the only cases possible. The method of dimensional… Expand

N=4 Yang-Mills and N=8 Supergravity as Limits of String Theories

- M. Green, J. Schwarz, L. Brink
- Physics
- 10 May 1982

The formulation of supersymmetric string theories in ten dimensions is generalized to incorporate compactified dimensions. Expressions for the one-loop four-particle S -matrix elements of N = 4… Expand

N=4 Yang-Mills Theory on the Light Cone

- L. Brink, O. Lindgren, B. Nilsson
- Physics
- 28 February 1983

Abstract The 10-dimensional supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory is constructed in the light-cone gauge. When the theory is dimensionally reduced to four dimensions it is shown that the corresponding N =… Expand

Superfield Theory of Type (ii) Superstrings

- M. Green, J. Schwarz, L. Brink
- Physics
- 20 June 1983

Abstract Type (II) superstrings are described by light-cone superfields that are functionals of string superspace coordinates x i ( σ ) and ϑ a ( σ ) or the conjugate momenta p i ( σ ) and λ a ( σ ).… Expand

The $N=8$ Supergravity in Superspace

Abstract The N =8 supergravity is presented in superspace. The theory is on-shell and has the expected local SU(8) and global E 7 invariances.

The Tradeoff between Expected Return and Risk Among Cornbelt Farmers

The inclusion of risk in farm-planning models has been the subject of many theoretical discussions, often with the conclusion that explicit risk consideration features are desirable. Operational… Expand

A Lagrangian formulation of the classical and quantum dynamics of spinning particles

- L. Brink, P. Vecchia, P. Howe
- Physics
- 10 January 1977

Abstract A spinning particle is described in terms of its position φ μ ( τ ) and of an additional spin degree of freedom ψ μ ( τ ) which is an odd element of a Grassmann algebra. Its motion is… Expand

The ultra-violet finiteness of the N=4 Yang-Mills theory☆

- L. Brink, O. Lindgren, B. Nilsson
- Physics
- 7 April 1983

Abstract The N =4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills gauge theory was formulated by us in a previous paper in the light-cone gauge. It is described by a scalar complex superfield whose components are the… Expand
