We make a connection between quantum phase transitions in condensed matter systems, and supersymmetric gauge theories that are of interest in the particle physics literature. In particular, we point out interesting effects of the supersymmetric quantum electrodynamics upon the critical behavior of the Ginzburg-Landau model. It is shown that supersymmetry… (More)
