# Effective Gauge degrees of freedom and the (non)existence of the glueball superpotential

@article{Nakayama2003EffectiveGD, title={Effective Gauge degrees of freedom and the (non)existence of the glueball superpotential}, author={Yu Nakayama}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2003}, volume={2003}, pages={049-049} }

We propose an efficient way to obtain a correct Veneziano-Yankielowicz type integration constant of the effective glueball superpotential Weff(S,g,Λ), even for massless theories. Applying our method, we show some = 1 theories do not have such an effective glueball superpotential, even though they have isolated vacua. In these cases, S = 0 typically.
