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

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

We point out that some recently proposed string theory realizations of dynamical supersymmetry breaking actually do not break supersymmetry in the usual desired sense. Instead, there is a runaway

Metastable Supersymmetry Breaking and Minimal Gauge Mediation on Branes

We construct a model with D5 branes wrapped on a deformed and resolved $A_6$ singularity which realizes metastable supersymmetry breaking and minimal gauge mediation. Supersymmetry is broken at tree

\mathcal{N} = 1 Gauge Theory Effective Superpotentials

Recent advances in computing effective superpotentials of four dimensional \( \mathcal{N}\) = 1 SUSY gauge theories coupled to matter are described. The correspondence with matrix models and two

Characters of the positive energy UIRs of D = 4 conformal supersymmetry

We give character formulas for the positive energy unitary irreducible representations of the N-extended D = 4 conformal superalgebras su(2, 2/N). Using these, we also derive decompositions of long

Superpotentials of $\mathcal{N}=1$ SUSY gauge theories

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

Metastable Supersymmetry Breaking Vacua on Abelian Brane Models

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

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

Meta-Stable Brane Configuration and Gauged Flavor Symmetry

Starting from an $\mathcal{N}=1$ supersymmetric electric gauge theory with the gauge group Sp(Nc) × SO(2N′c) with fundamentals for the first gauge group factor and a bifundamental, we apply Seiberg
