### N=2 Supersymmetric Theories, Dyonic Charges and Instantons

- Physics
- 2007

In the first part of this thesis we give an introduction to electric-magnetic duality and N=2 supersymmetry. After that we describe type II string theory instantons in the supergravity approximation.…

### Spontaneous conformal symmetry breaking and a massless Wu-Yang monopole

- Physics
- 2017

A formulation of $\mathcal{N} = 2$ supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory with a spacetime-dependent gauge coupling allows to study the breaking of conformal symmetry at the quantum level. The theory has…

### Confinement and duality in supersymmetric gauge theories

- Physics
- 2013

In this thesis we review the Seiberg-Witten solution of four dimensional N=2 gauge theories, the six-dimensional construction of these models recently proposed by Gaiotto and the BPS quiver technique…

### N = 2 supersymmetric QCD and elliptic potentials

- Physics, Mathematics
- 2014

We investigate the relation between the four dimensional N =2 SU(2) super Yang-Mills theory with four fundamental flavors and the quantum mechanics model with Treibich-Verdier potential described by…
