The one-flavor quark condensate and related problems

I describe a recent calculation (by me, Hoffmann, Liu, and Schaefer) of the chiral condensate in one-flavor QCD using numerical simulations with overlap fermions. The condensate is extracted by

Degeneracy Between the Regge Slope of Mesons and Baryons from Supersymmetry

We consider the degeneracy between the Regge slope of mesons and baryons in QCD. We argue that within the "orientifold large-N approximation" asymptotically massive mesons and baryons become

θ and the η′ in large N supersymmetric QCD

A bstractWe study the large N θ dependence and the η′ potential in supersymmetric QCD with small soft SUSY-breaking terms. Known exact results in SUSY QCD are found to reflect a variety of

Lattice Study of Planar Equivalence: The Quark Condensate

We study quenched SU(N) gauge theories with fermions in the two-index symmetric, antisymmetric and the adjoint representations. Our main motivation is to check whether at large number of colors those

Predictions for QCD from Supersymmetry

We review the construction of the effective Lagrangians of the Veneziano-Yankielowicz (VY) type for two non-supersymmetric theories containing one Dirac fermion in the two-index antisymmetric or



Instantons versus supersymmetry: Fifteen years later

An introduction to the instanton formalism in supersymmetric gauge theories is given. We explain how the instanton calculations, in conjunction with analyticity in chiral parameters and other general
