Adding flavor to Dijkgraaf-Vafa

  title={Adding flavor to Dijkgraaf-Vafa},
  author={John McGreevy},
We study matrix models related via the prescription of Dijkgraaf and Vafa to supersymmetric gauge theories with matter in the fundamental. As in flavorless examples, measure factors of the matrix integral reproduce information about R-symmetry violation in the field theory. The models, similar to one studied by Kazakov, exhibit a large-M phase transition as the number of flavors is varied. This is the matrix model’s manifestation of the end of asymptotic freedom.
