# Five-Dimensional Gauge Theories and Unitary Matrix Models

@article{Wijnholt2004FiveDimensionalGT, title={Five-Dimensional Gauge Theories and Unitary Matrix Models}, author={Martijn Wijnholt}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2004} }

The matrix model computations of effective superpotential terms in N=1 supersymmetric gauge theories in four dimensions have been proposed to apply more generally to gauge theories in higher dimensions. We discuss aspects of five-dimensional gauge theory compactified on a circle, which leads to a unitary matrix model.
