String theory and noncommutative geometry

- N. Seiberg, E. Witten
- Physics
- 20 August 1999

We extend earlier ideas about the appearance of noncommutative geometry in string theory with a nonzero B-field. We identify a limit in which the entire string dynamics is described by a minimally… Expand

Electric - magnetic duality, monopole condensation, and confinement in N=2 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory

- N. Seiberg, E. Witten
- Physics
- 15 July 1994

Abstract We study the vacuum structure and don spectrum of N =2 supersymmetric gauge theory in four dimensions, with gauge group SU(2). The theory turns out to have remarkably rich and physical… Expand

Electric-magnetic duality in supersymmetric non-Abelian gauge theories

- N. Seiberg
- Physics
- 20 November 1994

Abstract We demonstrate electric-magnetic duality in N = 1 supersymmetric non-Abelian gauge theories in four dimensions by presenting two different gauge theories (different gauge groups and quark… Expand

Dynamical SUSY breaking in meta-stable vacua

- K. Intriligator, N. Seiberg, D. Shih
- Physics
- 23 February 2006

Dynamical supersymmetry breaking in a long-lived meta-stable vacuum is a phenomenologically viable possibility. This relatively unexplored avenue leads to many new models of dynamical supersymmetry… Expand

Monopoles, duality and chiral symmetry breaking in N=2 supersymmetric QCD

- N. Seiberg, E. Witten
- Physics
- 17 August 1994

We study four dimensional N = 2 supersymmetric gauge theories with matter multiplets. For all such models for which the gauge group is SU(2), we derive the exact metric on the moduli space of quantum… Expand

Aspects of N = 2 supersymmetric gauge theories in three dimensions

- O. Aharony, A. Hanany, K. Intriligator, N. Seiberg, M. Strassler
- Physics
- 15 March 1997

Abstract We consider general aspects of N = 2 gauge theories in three dimensions, including their multiplet structure, anomalies and non-renormalization theorems. For U (1) gauge theories, we discuss… Expand

Mirror symmetry in three dimensional gauge theories

- K. Intriligator, N. Seiberg
- Physics
- 28 July 1996

Abstract We discuss non-trivial fixed points of the renormalization group with dual descriptions in N = 4 gauge theories in three dimensions. This new duality acts as mirror symmetry, exchanging the… Expand

Noncommutative perturbative dynamics

- Shiraz Minwalla, M. Raamsdonk, N. Seiberg
- Physics
- 8 December 1999

We study the perturbative dynamics of noncommutative field theories on R d , and find an intriguing mixing of the UV and the IR. High energies of virtual particles in loops produce non-analyticity at… Expand

Rigid supersymmetric theories in curved superspace

- G. Festuccia, N. Seiberg
- Physics
- 3 May 2011

We present a uniform treatment of rigid supersymmetric field theories in a curved spacetime $ \mathcal{M} $, focusing on four-dimensional theories with four supercharges. Our discussion is… Expand

The D1/D5 System And Singular CFT

- N. Seiberg, E. Witten
- Physics
- 25 March 1999

We study the conformal field theory of the D1/D5 system compactified on X (X is T4 or K3). It is described by a sigma model whose target space is the moduli space of instantons on X. For values of… Expand
