Perturbative computation of glueball superpotentials for SO(N) and USp(N)

We use the superspace method of \cite{Dijkgraaf:2002xd} to prove the matrix model conjecture for = 1 USp(N) and SO(N) gauge theories in four dimensions. We derive the prescription to relate the

The Glueball Superpotential for G_2

We perform a perturbative computation of the glueball superpotential for N=1 supersymmetric G_2 gauge theory with one adjoint matter multiplet. We find that the computation simplifies because the

Superpotentials of N =1 SUSY gauge theories

An introduction to recent advances in computing effective superpotentials of four dimensional N = 1 SUSY gauge theories coupled to matter is presented. The correspondence with matrix models and two

On = 1 exact superpotentials from U(N) matrix models

In this letter we compute the exact effective superpotential of = 1 U(N) supersymmetric gauge theories with Nf fundamental flavors and an arbitrary tree-level polynomial superpotential for the

Equivalence of effective superpotentials

We show that the low-energy effective superpotential of an N=1 U(N) gauge theory with matter in the adjoint and arbitrary even tree-level superpotential has, in the classically unbroken case, the

N=1* model and glueball superpotential from renormalization group-improved perturbation theory

A method for computing the low-energy non-perturbative properties of SUSY GFT, starting from the microscopic lagrangian model, is presented. The method relies on covariant SUSY Feynman graph

Effective superpotentials via Konishi anomaly

We use Ward identities derived from the generalized Konishi anomaly in order to compute effective superpotentials for SU(N), SO(N) and Sp(N) supersymmetric gauge theories coupled to matter in various

Glueball operators and the microscopic approach to N=1 gauge theories

We explain how to generalize Nekrasov's microscopic approach to = 2 gauge theories to the = 1 case, focusing on the typical example of the U(N) theory with one adjoint chiral multiplet X and an



A Perturbative Window into Non-Perturbative Physics

We argue that for a large class of N=1 supersymmetric gauge theories the effective superpotential as a function of the glueball chiral superfield is exactly given by a summation of planar diagrams of

Kodaira-Spencer theory of gravity and exact results for quantum string amplitudes

We develop techniques to compute higher loop string amplitudes for twistedN=2 theories withĉ=3 (i.e. the critical case). An important ingredient is the discovery of an anomaly at every genus in

Evaluation of the one loop string path integral

We evaluate Polyakov's path integral for the sum over all closed surfaces with the topology of a torus, in the critical dimensiond = 26. The result is applied to the partition function and

It is shown here how to write multiloop stringlike formulas in the Feynman-parameter representation for any diagram in QED, including those involving other nonelectromagnetic interactions, provided the internal photon lines are not adjacent to any external photon line.

Multiloop String-like Formulas for Qed

Multiloop gauge-theory amplitudes written in the Feynman-parameter representation are poised to take advantage of two important developments of the last decade: the spinor-helicity technique and the
