Abstract We determine the gluino condensate 〈Tr λ 2 〉 in the pure N =1 super-Yang–Mills theory (SYM) for the classical gauge groups SU ( r +1), SO (2 r +1), USp (2 r ) and SO (2 r ), by deforming the pure N =2 SYM theory with the adjoint scalar multiplet mass, following the work by Finnell and Pouliot, and Ritz and Vainshtein. The value of the gluino condensate agrees in all cases with what was found in the weak coupling instanton calculation. 
Gaugino condensate and phases of N=1 super Yang-Mills theories

Vanishing superconformal indices and the chiral symmetry breaking
A bstractSuperconformal indices of 4d$ \mathcal{N} $ = 1 SYM theories with SU(N) and SP(2N) gauge groups are investigated for Nf = N and Nf = N + 1 flavors, respectively. These indices vanish for

Abstract The smallest integer t for which the Wilson loop W t fails to exhibit area law is known as the confinement index of a given field theory. The confinement index provides us with subtle
On the chiral ring of N=1 supersymmetric gauge theories
We consider the chiral ring of the pure = 1 supersymmetric gauge theory with SU(N) gauge group and show that the classical relation SclN2 = 0 is modified to the exact quantum relation (SN−Λ3N)N = 0.
Gauging 1-form center symmetries in simple SU(N) gauge theories

Anomalies and phases of strongly-coupled chiral gauge theories: recent developments
After many years of investigations, our understanding of the dynamics of stronglycoupled chiral gauge theories is still quite unsatisfactory today. Conventional wisdom about strongly-coupled gauge
