In this paper we study some interesting properties of the effective superpotential of N = 1 supersymmetric gauge theories with fundamental matter, with the help of the Dijkgraaf–Vafa proposal connecting supersymmetric gauge theories with matrix models. We find that the effective superpotential for theories with Nf fundamental flavors can be calculated in terms of quantities computed in the pure (Nf = 0) gauge theory. Using this property we compute in a remarkably simple way the exact effective… CONTINUE READING
