The “a-maximization” was introduced by K. Intriligator and B. Wecht for finding anomalous dimensions of chiral superfields at the IR fixed points of the RG flow. Using known explicit calculations of anomalous dimensions in the perturbation theory of SQCD (with one or two additional adjoint fields), it is checked here at the three-loop level. 


Scheme dependence and the NSVZ β-function
Abstract We investigate the connection between the NSVZ and the DRED forms of the gauge β-function in an N = 1 supersymmetric gauge theory. We construct a coupling constant redefinition that relatesExpand
N = 1 supersymmetry and the three-loop gauge β-function
Abstract We calculate the three-loop gauge β-function for an abelian N = 1 supersymmetric gauge theory, using DRED. We construct a coupling constant redefinition that relates the result to theExpand
Lagrange multipliers and couplings in supersymmetric field theory
Abstract In hep-th/0312098 it was argued that by extending the “a-maximization” of hep-th/0304128 away from fixed points of the renormalization group, one can compute the anomalous dimensions ofExpand
N=1 supersymmetry and the three loop anomalous dimension for the chiral superfield
Abstract We calculate the three-loop anomalous dimension for a general N = 1 supersymmetric gauge theory. The result is used to probe the possible existence of renormalisation invariant relationshipsExpand
Evidence for the strongest version of the 4d a-theorem via a-maximization along RG flows
Abstract In earlier work, we (KI and BW) gave a two line “almost proof” (for supersymmetric RG flows) of the weakest form of the conjectured 4d a-theorem, that a IR a UV , using our result that theExpand
Exact Gell-Mann-Low Function of Supersymmetric Yang-Mills Theories from Instanton Calculus
Abstract The instanton contribution to the vacuum energy in supersymmetric Yang-Mills theories is considered. Using the renormalizability of the theory we find the exact beta function for n -extendedExpand
The exact superconformal R-symmetry maximizes a
Abstract An exact and general solution is presented for a previously open problem. We show that the superconformal R-symmetry of any 4d SCFT is exactly and uniquely determined by a maximizationExpand
Non-perturbative formulas for central functions of supersymmetric gauge theories
Abstract For quantum field theories that flow between ultraviolet and infrared fixed points, central functions, defined from two-point correlators of the stress tensor and conserved currents,Expand
