@article{Terning2003TASI2002LN, title={TASI-2002 Lectures: Non-perturbative Supersymmetry}, author={John Terning}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2003} }

These lectures contain a pedagogical review of non-perturbative results from holomorphy and Seiberg duality with applications to dynamical SUSY breaking. Background material on anomalies, instantons, unitarity bounds from superconformal symmetry, and gauge mediation are also included.

### Superpotentials of N =1 SUSY gauge theories

- Physics
- 2005

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…

### The runaway quiver

- Physics

We construct Abelian brane models with metastable vacua which are obtained from deformations of ${\cal N}=2$ supersymmetric brane configurations. One such model lives on a D4 brane stretched between…

### The Nelson-Seiberg Theorem Generalized with Nonpolynomial Superpotentials

- Mathematics

The Nelson-Seiberg theorem relates R-symmetries to F-term supersymmetry breaking, and provides a guiding rule for new physics model building beyond the Standard Model. A revision of the theorem gives…
