Approximations for strongly-coupled supersymmetric quantum mechanics

  title={Approximations for strongly-coupled supersymmetric quantum mechanics},
  author={Daniel N. Kabat and Gilad Lifschytz},
We advocate a set of approximations for studying the finite temperature behavior of strongly-coupled theories in 0+1 dimensions. The approximation consists of expanding about a Gaussian action, with the width of the Gaussian determined by a set of gap equations. The approximation can be applied to supersymmetric systems, provided that the gap equations are formulated in superspace. It can be applied to large-N theories, by keeping just the planar contribution to the gap equations.
