A bstractFermion boundary conditions play a relevant role in revealing the confinement mechanism of N=1$$ \mathcal{N}=1 $$ supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory with one compactified space-time dimension. A deconfinement phase transition occurs for a sufficiently small compactification radius, equivalent to a high temperature in the thermal theory where antiperiodic fermion boundary conditions are applied. Periodic fermion boundary conditions, on the other hand, are related to the Witten index and… 

Adiabatic continuity and confinement in supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory on the lattice

A bstractThis work is a step towards merging the ideas that arise from semi-classical methods in continuum QFT with analytic/numerical lattice field theory. In this context, we consider Yang-Mills

Supersymmetric Yang-Mills (SYM) theories in four dimensions exhibit many interesting non-perturbative phenomena that can be studied by means of Monte Carlo lattice simulations. However, the lattice

First studies of the phase diagram of N=1 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory

The behavior of supersymmetric theories at finite temperatures differs from that of other theories in certain aspects. Due to the different thermal statistics of bosons and fermions, supersymmetry is

Vacuum structure of Yang-Mills theory as a function of θ

A bstractIt is believed that in SU(N) Yang-Mills theory observables are N -branched functions of the topological θ angle. This is supposed to be due to the existence of a set of locally-stable

Dihedral symmetry in SU(N) Yang-Mills theory

We point out that charge conjugation and coordinate reflection symmetries do not commute with the center symmetry of $SU(N)$ YM theory when $N>2$. As a result, for generic values of the $\theta$

QCD on a small circle

QCD-like theories can be engineered to remain in a confined phase when compactified on an arbitrarily small circle, where their features may be studied quantitatively in a controlled fashion.

This is an introductory level review of recent applications of resurgent trans-series and Picard-Lefschetz theory to quantum mechanics and quantum field theory. Resurgence connects local perturbative

We examine a double trace deformation of SU(N) Yang-Mills theory which, for large N and large volume, is equivalent to unmodified Yang-Mills theory up to O(1/N{sup 2}) corrections. In contrast to the
