Lattice formulation of (2,2) supersymmetric gauge theories with matter fields

We construct lattice actions for a variety of (2,2) supersymmetric gauge theories in two dimensions with matter fields interacting via a superpotential.

Aspects of Dimensional Deconstruction and Neutrino Physics

The existence of at or curved extra spatial dimensions provides new insights into several of the problems which face the Standard Model of particle physics, including the gauge hierarchy problem, t

Supersymmetry on a euclidean spacetime lattice 2. Target theories with eight supercharges

We formulate euclidean spacetime lattices whose continuum limits are supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories with eight supercharges in two and three dimensions. The lattice actions are themselves

Exact vacuum energy of orbifold lattice theories

We investigate the orbifold lattice theories constructed from supersymmetric Yang-Mills matrix theories (mother theories) with four and eight supercharges. We show that the vacuum energy of these

Mediation of supersymmetry breaking in quivers

A bstractThe soft masses due to SUSY breaking, mediated by gauge fields, are computed for generic matter in quiver gauge theories.

Supersymmetry on a Spatial Lattice

We construct a variety of supersymmetric gauge theories on a spatial lattice, including N = 4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory in 3+1 dimensions. Exact lattice supersymmetry greatly reduces or

Deconstruction of Gravity

We review how one can construct a deconstructed gravity by a transverse latticification of 5D General Relativity. The obtained theory is a multigravity theory, with link fields that are explicitly

A euclidean lattice construction of supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories with sixteen supercharges

We formulate supersymmetric euclidean spacetime Ad* lattices whose classical continuum limits are U(N) supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories with sixteen supercharges in d = 1,2,3 and 4 dimensions. This

D-branes, quivers, and ALE instantons

Effective field theories in type I and II superstring theories for D-branes located at points in the orbifold C^2/Z_n are supersymmetric gauge theories whose field content is conveniently summarized

OM theory in diverse dimensions

Open string theories can be decoupled from closed strings and gravity by scaling to the critical electric field. We propose dual descriptions for the strong coupling limit of these NCOS
