Supersymmetric gauge theories in four dimensions can display interesting nonperturbative phenomena. Although the superpotential dynamically generated by these phenomena can be highly nontrivial, it can often be exactly determined. We discuss some general techniques for analyzing the Wilsonian superpotential and demonstrate them with simple but nontrivial examples.

We use the Konishi anomaly equations to construct the exact effective superpotential of the glueball superfields in various N = 1 supersymmetric gauge theories. We use the superpotentials to study in… Expand

The role of instantons in describing non-perturbative aspects of globally supersymmetric gauge theories is reviewed. The cases of theories with N = 1, N = 2 and N = 4 supersymmetry are discussed.… Expand

We study chiral SU (N) supersymmetric gauge theories with matter in the antifundamental and antisymmetric representations. For SU (5) with two families, we show how to reproduce the… Expand

We begin with a brief introduction on N=1 gauge theories, focusing on the importance of the effective superpotential in light of the new techniques to compute it systematically. We then proceed to… Expand

We introduce simple and more advanced concepts that have played a key role in the development of supersymmetric systems. This is done by first describing various supersymmetric quantum mechanics… Expand
